Sunday Worship @ Alert Level Orange

Andrew Metcalfe —

Information about worship services under the New Zealand COVID-19 Protection Framework (Traffic Lights)

Traffic Light details for Level Orange

We are updating this page with information around what Parishes are offering for people who have a vaccine pass, and for those who don't. Follow the links below to individual faith community websites for current service information. 

We have two options:

Option 1 – Vaccine Pass Only: with an unlimited number of attendees, providing every attendee presents a vaccine pass, or; 

Option 2 – Mixed Services: with a limited number of attendees (100, Green; 50, Orange) without requiring attendees to have a vaccination pass.

Until it is confirmed from parishes what they are doing, the default setting for any Parish or Church is Option 2 - Mixed Services. 


A reminder: everyone is welcome to joining Morning Prayer by Zoom (Tuesdays to Saturdays at 9 am) and Evening Prayer by Zoom (Tuesdays to Fridays at 5 pm). We are also updating our Gospel Conversations each week where a small group discuss and open up the lectionary gospel reading for the following week. 

We are also looking at some more Zoom options for people who may not be able to attend a service in person. Watch this space...
