Updated on Thursday 26th November 2020

  • Church services are back to face to face.
  • We are adhering to the hygiene and spacing requirements and working hard to be COVID safe every day.
  • Online church will continue be available via here this week and every Sunday in 2020.  
  • The office is open on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday as usual. please see details here.
  • Playgroup was cancelled for 2 weeks and will not be open this week on Wednesday 25th November. We are unsure about the following week at this point.
  • The ordination on Sat 28th Nov is going ahead at this stage, but with the restriction of only 100 people in the entire cathedral- so our previous bookings to attend will not count. Sincere apologies to members of the parish who intended to go and support Jo. I ask that you support her prayerfully this week and next.
  • All attending the Fasta Pasta brunch/ lunch have been contacted regarding arrangements for Sun 29th Nov.
  • Our parish rated itself as highly adaptable in the last National Church Life Survey and we are once again in a space where that adaptability will be key. Thank you for going with the flow as we try and navigate these unusual times. God bless you St Jude’s and see you soon!

RE SERVICE MARSHALS

As of the 21st of August 2020 St Jude’s will transition from COVID-officers, as have been in place since the start of July 2020, to COVID Marshals as per the new State Government requirements. Our current COVID Offers as well as additional new recruits from the ranks of the Parish Council are undertaking their Marshal training. Training is free, is in line with SA Health directives, and very straightforward. We are grateful for the work of those helping us meet our obligations to keep each other safe at Church.

Information about the Marshal training can be found at the following address www.covid-19.sa.gov.au/recovery/covid-marshals. And general information about the Covid Marshal requirements can be found here.

Please keep in your prayers:

Those who are feeling anxious and vulnerable across the world. Those who are sick, and their loved ones. Those who are mourning the loss of loved ones. Those who are working in the medical field. Those who are impacted greatly by COVID-19, especially the poor and marginalised. Please pray that Australia will find strength in a compassionate national discourse, at a time of heightened worry and need.
