Latest News Updates



All COVID-19 restrictions for church and home gatherings have been removed. Your church ministries can now continue as per the “old” normal (ie: pre-COVID).

It is important, however, to note the following items:

  • If your gathering will have more than 1000 people, you will still need to have a COVID Management Plan.
  • SA Health recommends social distancing and “one way traffic” for the movement of people, where possible.
  • People who have COVID symptoms are required to test and isolate.
  • If people wish to wear masks to your gathering, they are encouraged to do so.
  • If you have ministries with vulnerable people, it may be worth continuing to wear masks when meeting.

A new COVID-Safe Plan would have been sent to your church recently outlining all the above.

If you have any questions about the requirements at your church, review your most recent COVID-Safe Plan, visit the COVID-Safe website, call the COVID-Safe Information Line (1800 253 787) or email or call 83571755 to chat with our team.
