Status of our Adventist Churches in Victoria
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic the world is currently facing and Australian Government restrictions, our churches will comply with and operate within the clear guidelines as provided by DHHS for places of worship.
We are working to provide pastoral care to our people and in response to community need. People have lost jobs. Others are unwell. Stress is increasing. Our pastoral team has been working to find creative ways to meet needs and provide pastoral care, and will continue to do so, adhering to official guidelines as restrictions ease.
From Thursday August 6, 2020, the Victorian Conference Office is closed All staff are however, continuing to serve and are contactable via their emails or office numbers which will divert to their computers.
Reception can still be contacted via (03) 9264 7777 (which will divert) or email VicReception@adventist.org.au
From Wednesday morning, Oct 28, 2020, the ABC store is REOPENED TO PUBLIC, while adhering to the Covid Safe Plan guidelines. Visitors remaining for more than 15 minutes will be required to register their contact details.
Churches across the State of Victoria will also operate in compliance with the guidelines for their respective regions.
What should I do?
Your church may still not be able to open, so contact your Pastor or Church Elder for more information via email or phone if needed.
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.
