Dear Calvary Family

We hope & pray you and your family are well and safe.

Over the last week we have had more restrictions on gatherings. We are no longer to gather in small groups outside our own family groups. This bring the need to work a way to continue our Bible Studies. We will do this thru a platform called ZOOM. You can download Zoom from www.zoom.us or from your app store for your phone.

All Bible Study times will be placed on our website, facebook & instagram page with a connection link . All you need to do is have zoom dowloaded on your device or computer and click the link and you will be taken to the bible study. You will be able to interact , talk and see one another .. It's a wonderful opportunity for fellowship .

Remember to visit www.calvarychapelalbany.com.au and our social media sites for the latest.

God Bless !

COVID-19 UPDATE 20/03/2020

SERVICES ONLINE ONLY

Dear Calvary Family 

As you may be aware the Federal Government have brought in new restrictions on indoor static gathering of more than 100 people or more. Through much prayer & consideration the Calvary Leadership Team have decided to suspend Sunday Morning gatherings for the time being. Instead we will be meeting Online. We are calling it "Church At Home". 

"CHURCH AT HOME "

So what will "Church At Home" look like ? Well it’s going to be Church either on your computer Screen , Phone or TV. Pastor Chuck Smith said "Blessed are the flexible" and the Church has adapted in the past and we will adapt now to our current situation using every possible tool to preach the Gospel and to encourage one another.  

We believe this is an opportunity to do ground roots evangelism in our own neighbourhood. Why not Invite your neighbours over this Sunday and watch "Church At Home" together  & share communion with us.  This is a great opportunity .

If you need assistance to set up our streaming service please contact us (Steve 0412 948 6490 ) and we will arrange for someone to help you get set up.

"WHAT TO EXPECT" 

WORSHIP : We will begin our Church At Home experience with Worship by the Calvary Worship Band.  Yes the Calvary Worship Band will be playing at Church like every Sunday.

OFFERING : We will also Worship God through giving. This can be done Online at calvarychapelalbany.com.au/Give on our secure website or by direct deposit into a NAB Bank account. 

If neither of these ways work for you please feel free to drop in your offering to the Church on Tuesdays between 9am - 5pm.

MESSAGE : Pastor Chris will share a message from the Scriptures.

COMMUNION : Please prepare some juice and bread to partake in Communion for yourself at the end of the service. 

RESPONSE : There will be a time for Prayer After the service , You will 

be able to ask for prayer on our chat board on the LIVE STREAM or simply inbox us on Facebook. 

All this can be accessed LIVE by visiting www.calvarychapelalbany.com.au . Click on the sermons link and then click "Watch LIVE". You can also visit our Facebook page and watch our sermon on Facebook LIVE. 

"WE ARE FAMILY"

Calvary is all about Family and we care about our family. We want you to know as we go thru this transition we are here for you. Our Leadership Team will be contacting our Calvary Families.

You can give your details by Visiting calvarychapelalbany.com.au, click on the "Log In" link, click register, and fill in the contact details. 

"SMALL GROUPS" 

We would like you to know our Small Groups, Wednesday Night Bible Study, Youth Group , Young Adults Meeting & Prayer Meeting are still operating. We encourage you to connect during the week to encourage one another to worship together and study God’s Word together. 

"WHAT IF I GET SICK ?"
If you are are unwell or if you enter self isolation please let us know. Our Calvary CARE Team is ready to help in anyway we can. Remember you can contact us thru our social media platforms or on email info@calvarychapelalbany.com.au

COVID-19 UPDATE - 13/03/2020

Dear Calvary Family 

It’s been an incredible start to 2020, and we are celebrating all that God is doing amongst our Calvary Family. God is continuing to connect us and grow us as a family.  Our church leadership have also been following the news relating to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). As those who trust in God , we do not walk in fear but we do want to walk in wisdom.

We continue to pray for our Calvary community , our City and our nation as this virus continues to move. We ask for Gods healing and protection on those who have come in contact with this virus and anyone feeling anxious during this time of uncertainty.  

We understand that you might have some concerns , so we wanted make you aware of the precautions we are implementing in order to maintain the health and safety of our congregation.  Much of this is already practiced on a regular basis as church hygiene. 

  • We have communicated to the Calvary Crew (our volunteer teams) that we will be waving at our entrance doors rather than shaking hands.
  • We will be conducting extra cleaning, and our volunteers will be using sanitiser to wipe down shared surfaces before and after the service.
  • We will have additional hand sanitiser stations.
  • We will be implementing these additional sanitisation measures in CalvaryKids, including wiping down all surfaces such as play areas and toys.   
  • Please stay home if you are not feeling well. If your child has a fever or other flu/cold symptoms. If you choose to stay home, we’d love for you to join our service through Church Online!

We have begun to implement the above measure’s if you would like to help cleaning during this time it would be appreciated. Please call Martin Long on 0435 179 561 to volunteer. 

Our Leadership team will continue to monitor the situations and may need to implement new measure in the future. We will also continue to follow guidance from the relevant Government authorities on appropriate next steps and precautions our church should take .

Thank you for your partnership in order to maintain the health and safety of our Church family, and we will inform you of any new information promptly.

We trust our God completely in this situation and we will continue to pray for our Calvary Family, City and Nation.

God Bless
