Adventist Churches Close in Victoria

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic the world is currently facing and Australian Government restrictions, our churches will remained closed, as per guidelines. We are however, working to run church as normally as possible, providing pastoral care to our people and in response to community need. People have lost jobs. Others are unwell. Stress will be increasing. Our pastoral team is working to find creative ways to meet needs and provide pastoral care.

What should I do?

Do not go to your local Church.

Feel free to contact your Pastor or Church Elder for more information via email or phone.

Be sure to follow the these guidelines.

I want to worship on Sabbath!

Great! We’re here to serve you. While we can’t meet in person, we have Churches that are providing live streaming services on Sabbath. Past Sabbath worship videos are also available for you to watch. 

These Churches are currently live-streaming.  Given that Places of Worship have now been closed our churches are streaming from elsewhere in compliance with the latest restrictions…  The below links will also take you to archives where you can access past sermons.

How can I support church financially?

While our church buildings are closed, our Church organisation is still active, working to advancing God’s kingdom through supporting local churches with pastoral care and other resources, as well as wider afield.

Funds for this work largely comes from tithes and offerings. 

So even though you can no longer meet in your local church, please remember to continue supporting Church as you are able.

Is Anything Planned over Easter instead of Big Camp?

 

Dick Duerksen was one of our presenters lined up for Big Camp this year.  He describes himself as an itinerant pollinator of grace and shares the good news about grace around the world, using narrative-style presentations.

Big Camp 2020 is no longer on, but you will, however, still be able to hear Dick as he shares with us from his home in Oregon, exerpts from Nicodemus’ “journal”.  Relive the events of Christ’s last days through the eyes of this ‘silent’ believer.

Friday Evening, Sabbath morning and Sunday morning, streaming from Lilydale Church and Mildura Church at 7.30pm Friday, 9am Saturday and 10am Sunday over the Easter Weekend.
