Dear members, regular attendees and visitors to Stellenbosch Bible Church,
As SBC leadership, the following has been decided involving the way forward for our church with Covid-19, until further notice:
1. As of immediate effect there will be no more home-based fellowships or studies until the government allows schools to reconvene.
2. We will continue with church services at Rhenish on Sunday mornings. Government has issued stricter measures for public meetings however, including hand sanitising and refraining from handshaking etc. We as a church will be providing hand sanitiser which is compulsory for entrance into the hall. Everyone will be expected to use this, irrespective of age. If you do not wish to comply then we would urge you to refrain from coming to church until we no longer have to use hand sanitiser.
3. There will be no food served at church until regulations have been relaxed by the government. Coffee will still be served.
4. The elderly have been urged to stay at home on Sundays until further notice.
5. Those who have cold/flu-like symptoms are urged to stay away on Sundays.
Let's continue to pray that the Lord will achieve His sovereign goals with this and allow it to phase away soon.
