Church Family


We are thankful to once again be taking the steps toward coming back from COVID. We have seen that our church is a resilient bunch, and it is now that a strong spirit of unity most counts.

We are currently hosting all services at 100% capacity every Sunday and Wednesday. We would love to have you join us.

Sunday Services

- 9:00am  All ages Sunday School and Bible Class
- 10:30am  Morning Service
- 5:00pm  Evening Service

Wednesday Service

- 7:00pm  Bible Study and Prayer Meeting

Please note that only the Sunday 10:30am and 5:00pm services are available for streaming online.

Our goal is to facilitate regathering in a safe and compliant way, and to make our services as “touchless” as possible. We have tried to make these guidelines simple, asking you to manage your own risk and to express care toward others.  

As we saw from the last comeback out of the lockdown, this plan is fluid and may change. We ask you to regather in person only when you are comfortable doing so.

We love you and look forward to worshipping with you, either in person or online. We pray diligently that this hardship will pass and that you will stay healthy and safe.

Seniors and the immunocompromised

 It is safest for seniors (65+) and the immunocompromised to avoid large gatherings for now. The NSW Government strongly recommend that you continue engaging online throughout this time.

Who is at risk?

 Based on what we know now, those at high risk for severe illness from COVID-19 are:

•       People 65 years and older
•       People with underlying medical conditions

Medical conditions include, but are not limited to:
•       Chronic lung disease or asthma
•       Heart conditions
•       Diabetes
•       immunocompromised

 If we become aware that someone who has attended a service becomes ill we will follow these procedures:

•       We will ask the person to stay home and seek medical care if needed.
•       We will contact all attendees present at the same service as the person who was ill.
•       Any areas we determine the confirmed COVID-19 person visited will be sanitised carefully.



Thank you for understanding the need for these guidelines. As we begin our second comeback, we each assume a certain level of risk and responsibility. Please only assume that risk when you are comfortable doing so in relation to your personal vulnerability. Please help us protect others by embracing these guidelines responsibly.

While enhanced safety measures are being taken at Southland Baptist Church, an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the NSW Health Authorities, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By visiting Southland Baptist Church, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
