WELCOME BACK TO CHURCH
We are so EXCITED to open the doors of church and GATHER TOGETHER again at both 360 Church locations for services in each facility, starting on Sunday 2nd August, 2020.
WHAT DOES THIS LOOK LIKE?
An Industry COVID Safe Plan for Places of Worship in Queensland has been developed to help ensure social distancing and good hygiene are complied with and transmission opportunities are effectively minimised for the safety of all attendees and the broader community, of which 360 Church will follow at all events held within our facilities. We are doing everything we can to create a clean environment, whilst observing social distancing guidelines, and other facility requirements. Part of these requirements that are applicable to anyone who attends a 360 Church service or event, and that will be implemented across all services, are as follows:
CONTACTLESS CHECK IN and CHECK OUT
It is mandatory that certain contact details of all attendees are recorded at the outset of any 360 Church gathering and that the information is retained and provided to Queensland Health if needed for the purposes of contact tracing. These contact details must include certain categories, and therefore, to aid in contactless less check in and check out, and to create a fast and seamless entry and exit system, please visit our website at your earliest convenience and complete the Connect Card to update you and/your family's details: Click Here To Update Your Details Your information will be kept confidential and used for the purpose of maintaining records of attendance at any event held by 360 Church, in compliance with COVID-19 Safe Practices. If we do not have your required details, please wait in the designated queue at entry and our team will update your details upon your arrival and then check you in.
SECURE YOUR SEAT
As there are limits as to how many people can fit in each facility whilst maintaining social distancing and adhering to the square meterage per person at indoor gatherings, attendance at church services will be capped. We encourage you to do two things to enable you to secure a seat:
1. Register your attendance prior to the service - this will enable us to ensure we can pre-allocate your seat, and, we can monitor expected attendance prior to each service. Registered Seats will remain secure up until 10 minutes prior to each service. If you have registered but not arrived 10 minutes prior to the service, the seat will then become available for other people who may turn up on the morning. Note: If you register a seat, there is no need to update your details through the church website, as your details will update automatically through the pre-registration system.
2. Arrive early - doors will open 30 minutes prior to each service. This will allow time to check each person in and host you to your seat. Household groups are permitted to sit together, whilst observing social distancing and remaining 1.5 metres from other groups.

We love our incredibly friendly culture, however, let’s skip the hugs and handshakes in favour of a smile and a wave. And, let's ensure we maintain social distancing of at least 1.5 metres, whilst still being social with one another.
360 Kids will resume on Sunday 2nd August, 2020. Check in will be completed at entry to the church, rather than in the 360 Kids Room.
The practice of taking communion will remain suspended until the coronavirus danger is well past. This is due to the difficulty of handling biscuits and juice (cups) and the increased likelihood of transmission through hand to mouth application.
CONNECTION BEFORE AND AFTER THE SERVICE
The provision of food, tea, coffee and water after the service will remain temporarily cancelled due to food restrictions, and, the COVID Safe Plan does not permit us to provide or facilitate communal refreshments.
TITHES & OFFERINGS
Thanks for your continued generosity during this time and your continued faithfulness in sowing into His house. We encourage you to continue to give online via internet banking to minimise our volunteers having contact with cash, however, EFTPOS and cash giving options will be available during services. Your church location account details for online giving can be found by clicking here. Direct Debit is also available by clicking here. Please complete the form and email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
NOT FEELING WELL
We would ask that as per the Health Department guidelines, if you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19, such as fever, coughs, colds or similar symptoms, please stay at home and do not attend a 360 Church event. If you are displaying symptoms, have been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19, or have been tested for COVID-19 please let us know, as we are required to confidentially record the incident and report to Queensland Health.
Of course, we will also pray for you as a church family, and we would encourage you to remain connected through our online service if sick, and listen to the sermon uploaded onto our website by each Tuesday via podcast.
We have new systems in place for cleaning and disinfecting frequent touch points, and each location will also undergo stricter cleaning each week by professional cleaners. We will also have hand sanitisers available for you at all entry and exit points, as well as other locations throughout our facilities.
We will continue to update you by email, website, and social media. We encourage everyone to connect with us via social media so that you can be made aware of our immediate updates and regularly check our website. 'Like' the public 360 Church Facebook page, and, if you are not part of the private 360 Church Community Connect Facebook page, please let us know so that we can add you, as that is a great place to stay connected with other church members, post prayer requests and any other needs you may have during this time.
Please continue to pray for our community and influence your world to advance God's kingdom on earth. We greatly appreciate your understanding and cooperation in these matters. We are here to help, and if you do have any questions or concerns, please contact us in any of the following ways:
