Baby Show and Fete
Due to the recent covid-19 restrictions, it is with regret that our annual Baby Show and Fete has been cancelled.
The organ recital planned for Christopher Trikilis on Sunday 31st October has been postponed until 2022. As Christopher was to come from Brisbane there was too much doubt in relation to border closures and whether they would open to permit access to NSW.
The Queensland Organ Society recital in All Saints church on Saturday 6 November has been postponed until 2022. As mentioned above the closure of the border between Queensland and NSW creates numerous problems for those trying to cross the border.
Suspension of Worship Services.
The NSW Government’s recent direction that unvaccinated people may not enter Parish property has resulted in worship services being replaced with on-line services until this direction is amended. The Parish Council was of the view that it should not discriminate against those who are unvaccinated and that it would be unacceptable to ask volunteers to refuse entry to worship to those who are unvaccinated.
Bishop’s Pastoral Visit
Bishop Dr Murray Harvey, Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Grafton, was expected to make his pastoral visit to the Parish on Sunday 31st October. However, due to the Covid-19 restrictions and future unknowns his visit has been postponed until 2022.
