Dear Living Faith Uniting Church Family and Friends
We are hurtling into 2021 but we go one day at a time so that we don't miss all that God is saying as we move forward.
We are gearing up for our Seven Significant Sentences course that will help us experience God anew during Lent and into Easter. Small groups are being set up where you will have the opportunity to delve deeper into the meaning of Easter and the life-changing effects it may bring to you. Each week you will hear a powerful and meaningful testimony during the service. God is going to speak to us and I pray our hearts will be open to the way He will comfort and challenge us. To join a small group for support, friendship and learning, just get in touch with me.
I am delighted to let you know that Rev Ian Wilson will be supporting me in meeting some of the pastoral care needs within the congregation. Don't be surprised if you receive a friendly phone call from him from time to time - we would love to pray for you and pastorally assist you in difficulties.
"For God so loved the world that He sent His only Son, that whoever believes in Him, will not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 May this powerful truth be a beautiful reminder of God's love for YOU today!

If you are required to wear a face mask at work, you should be instructed in its proper use so that you and others are not at increased risk of infection. This includes the following measures:
check the mask before use for defects such as tears or broken loops or ties
wash your hands with soap and water or apply alcohol-based hand sanitiser before putting on the face mask
make sure the mask covers your nose and mouth and fits snugly under your chin, over the bridge of your nose and against the sides of your face while ensuring you can breathe easily:
if the mask has a metallic strip, mould this to the shape of your nose
if it has ear loops, hold the mask by both ear loops and place one loop over each ear
if it has ties, hold the mask by the upper strings. Tie the upper strings in a secure bow near the crown of your head and tie the bottom strings securely in a bow near the nape of your neck
do not touch the front of your mask while wearing it and don’t pull it down to talk or consume food and drink. If you touch the front of the mask accidentally, immediately wash or sanitise your hands
the face mask should be either on or off - do not wear the mask hanging around your neck, under your nose or on your forehead
replace the mask if it becomes damp, soiled or damaged or you have coughed or sneezed into it
carefully remove the mask by grasping the loops or untying the ties to avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth, and then wash or sanitise your hands straight away
if using a single-use mask, use it once only and do not reuse. Dispose of the mask immediately after use by putting it in a sealable plastic bag so that it won’t be touched by others. Discard the sealed bag in the bin and then wash or sanitise your hands
if using a reusable mask, wash it after each use and before you put it back on. Place the used mask in a sealable plastic bag until you can wash it, and wash or sanitise your hands after handling it. Wash the used mask in a washing machine using a warm cycle and laundry detergent or by hand using warm water and detergent and allow to dry. Washed masks should be stored in a clean dry place such as a Ziplock bag. It is a good idea to have at least two masks, so you always have a clean one available
if the face mask is causing your glasses to fog up, make sure that the mask fits snugly over your face and try washing your glasses with water and detergent or apply an anti-fog spray.
It is important to also maintain other recommended measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as a face mask alone will not protect you and others from infection. This includes staying at home if unwell, social distancing by keeping at least 1.5 metres from other people, hand hygiene, coughing or sneezing into your elbow or tissue, regular cleaning of frequently touched surfaces, and seeking medical advice and getting tested for COVID-19 if you develop symptoms.
