**No On-site Services This Week – Sunday 14/02/2021**

Due to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions announced today, worship at Sunshine Uniting Church has been cancelled for this week – Sunday 14/02/2021.

The 11:30am congregation will be conducting their Sunday worship service via Zoom. Members of the 11:30am congregation are asked to contact Penaia for further information.

As of Friday February 12 at 11.59pm, the entire state of Victoria will revert to Stage 4 COVID-19 restrictions.

These restrictions will be in place, at this stage, for 5 days until 11.59pm on Wednesday February 17, however the Premier has indicated that we will not know until next Wednesday whether these restrictions will be lifted or extended. For further information please refer to the Department of Health and Human Services Website (https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus) and today’s statement by the Victorian Premier (https://www.premier.vic.gov.au/statement-premier-85).

There will also be no men’s or women’s shed gatherings at Sunshine Uniting Church this week – Wednesday February 17. 

We hold our community in prayer as we enter into this snap lockdown and pray for all of those who have been infected with COVID-19, both here and around the world, their close contacts, and the wonderful work of the many essential workers in hospitals, quarantine hotels, testing centres and many others.

We look forward to gathering together soon.

Peace and love,

Rev. Fiona Bottcher.
