City Church Covid Update!


Like most activities in the community that are starting to re-engage, there are guidelines we must adhere to in order to maintain a safe environment for our church family and the broader community.

As a place of worship, we are permitted 1 person per 4 sqm inside our church. This is great news for us as we have ample space in our auditorium to host you in comfort and safety. Every room within our building has signage to display the permitted capacity of that space. You will notice some seats and rows are blocked out of service, so please sit with your household in the seats we have made available to ensure we meet compliance. Service numbers will be capped to ensure we adhere to current gathering restrictions so it’s imperative you register to attend your service of choice.

Registration for our services is essential and in order to comply with Government guidelines your name and contact details must be provided. You may register for your service of choice at:

Once registered, you’ll receive an email confirmation. Please come 15mins early to the service you have registered for so that the Welcome Team can check you in before you enter the building.
The Wednesday Seniors 10am fortnightly service and the Friday night City Youth service will have an option to register upon arrival at the church building rather than an online pre-registration. Please arrive 15 mins early to these services also so that you can be easily registered by the welcome team before entering the building. 

There is QR code signage at the entry of every door at church which will now be used for anybody coming into buildings on Sundays and during the week. Please check in via this method anytime you come to the church building.

For the health and safety of church attendees, congregational singing is not permitted on our premises so please refrain from singing during a service.

Masks are currently mandatory in all areas of church for people over 12 unless they have a medical exemption.

Sunday 9:30am | Wednesday Seniors 10:00am (fortnightly). 
After the service, we encourage you to exit the building and grab a coffee and chat outside of church, head across to the Park or even pop into one of the many local cafes that have now reopened. We respectfully ask you to please continue maintaining social distancing requirements outside the church building.

City Church has been approved as a “COVID Safe Business”. Our staff have completed the Australian Government Department of Health COVID-19 Infection Control Training and our volunteers have been trained in our COVID Safe Practices.
We have appointed and trained a COVID Safe Team who have been managing our COVID Safe Response.

We’ve undertaken a review of our processes to ensure we are demonstrating excellence in our church environment. Cleaning frequency has been increased and our venue will receive additional cleaning before every service. There will be no printed materials, offering containers or communion passed around during service. Individual commercially packaged communion packs will be available for collection upon arrival at church. 

Please remember our teams will be maintaining good social distancing practices so will be avoiding hand to hand contact and hugs. But not to worry, we will be there to greet you with a warm smile, a big wave or even a foot bump!

Hand sanitiser stations have been installed at our main entry & exit points and sanitiser is readily available right throughout the building so please make use of it!

To maintain a safe worship environment, we kindly ask that if any of the following apply to you, please do not attend the service:

  • If you feel unwell or are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 (eg: fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, sneezing/runny nose or loss of sense of smell);
  • If you have COVID-19 or are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test;
  • If you have been in close contact with any known or suspected cases of COVID-19 in the past 14 days;
  • If you have returned from overseas travel in the past 14 days. Instead, we warmly invite you to join us online for the services.


The Kids facilities regularly undergo a thorough disinfectant clean. Kids church check-ins will take place out the front of the kids church building. Every child will receive a touch free temperature test before they enter the building.

A thorough surface clean will be undertaken again in-between every service. Registration numbers for children will be capped to ensure we adhere to current gathering restrictions so it’s imperative you register your child to attend City Church kids during your service of choice. 
There is no kids church service available for our Wednesday (fortnightly) midweek service.

We will continue to stream on Sunday’s, all this will take place in our 9:30am service live on YouTube and Facebook. You can find the links and all the info you need on our website at
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our pastors or team at the office on 02 4720 6100 or email and we will be happy to assist.

City Church takes the health and safety of all people attending our services seriously and we have implemented thorough COVID safety plans and policies in alignment with government health guidelines to reduce risk for all people. City Church will not be held liable for people contracting COVID-19 through church services or church activities. All people attending City Church programs in person must comply with our COVID safety policies and understand the risks and personal responsibility for their health and others. We encourage all people to take personal responsibility, comply with health orders and follow City Church policies and procedures to reduce risk for every person.

We look forward to seeing you in person at City Church!
