Church Gatherings

We imagine you’re as thrilled as we are with restrictions easing in Victoria. It means we can once again meet in-person after so many challenging months.

Despite the difficulties, we have continued to see our vision lived out to courageously love and empower people to become like Jesus.

As a community, we love to gather together, spur each other on, and hold firm to our mission. We’re looking forward to meeting as a church community in the church car park. We’ll have the Brave Brew coffee van, a time to sing praises to God, a brief devotion, and plenty of time to connect with others. Please bring a folding chair.

A COVID-Safe Marshall will be on-site to help with QR Codes and give directions. Bayside’s staff will be rostered on to help too.

Why meet in the car park and not inside the building?

There are several factors that we need to consider:

  • There is still a restriction on the number of people we can safely fit in any given space. The car park gives us a more significant opportunity to come together as a community in larger numbers.
  • Outdoor gatherings are easier to manage, especially for Bayside’s staff, who have all worked very hard throughout the pandemic.
  • Outdoor gatherings are safer. Safety is more easily established outdoors under the present circumstances. Research has shown that the risk of spread of COVID-19 reduces significantly when outdoors compared to indoors. Based on this, the Government has placed stringent measures of COVID Safety for indoors activity on all businesses and organisations, including churches. By meeting in the car park, we reach Government and medical safety measures more effectively and efficiently.
  • In the case of inclement weather, the gathering will be moved indoors. However, it is important to note masks must be worn and number ratios allowed indoors may differ. You will be advised if the gathering changes from outdoor to indoor if you have booked.
