IMPORTANT INFORMATION IN REGARDS TO ALL OUR SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICES
有关所有主日崇拜重要信息:
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

Greetings to you all in our Lord Jesus Christ! 
As you all are aware of, today the Coronavirus infection cases have reached an alarming number at 928 nationally. PM of Australia announced on 20 March that any enclosed public gathering shall be subject to “one person per every 4 square metre” restriction. 

TMC Pastor and Leaders have adopted Bishop Albert Wong’s instruction that all Methodist Churches in Australia shall switch to live streaming or other online platforms from Sunday 22 March. Whilst this is a very difficult decision, it is the right measure to ensure the safety of our church members especially the elderlies. As proven in China, isolation and social distancing is most effective way to contain the spread of the virus. 

Worship team and some support members are permitted on-site to conduct the service/streaming. However, the number of people shall be kept below 25 at any one time.
Members whose employment or income have been affected by the economic impact of the virus may adjust their offering accordingly. We continue to pray for them. 

As this restriction is imposed in very short notice, we shall start with some basic service elements. Other elements shall be further evaluated in coming weeks due to legal restriction, for example, Praise and Worship. We shall actively observe and adjust to government guidelines. We have a dedicated team behind the scenes to manage this and I will keep you informed on a regular basis.

Below are the interim arrangements: 

1) Worship time (Live streaming): 
• Mandarin + Casey - 9:30 AM
• English – 11:00 AM
*Please note Sermon video shall be retained for 24 hours only

2) Link to live Streaming 
You can either enter Trinity MC Website www.trinitymc.org.au or just click on the below links...

3) Service Order:
• Liturgist / Pastoral Prayer
• Sermon
• Announcement
• Benediction / Closing prayer

4) Tithes and Offering
• Online Bank Transfer – Trinity Methodist Church. BSB: 013 231 A/C #: 2538 67139
• By Cheque – payable to Trinity Methodist Church – send to Treasurer James Wong
• Put your cash offering in an envelope and pass on to Treasurer 
* Casey offering please mark “CPP” as reference for offering segregation

Please note that all fellowship and meetings are to be discontinued until further notice. If practical, we encourage switching some of the programs to Zoom. English Prayer meeting will be conducted via Zoom.
These groups include:
• Youth Group
• Women, Adult Fellowships and home study groups
• Prayer Meetings

As members of the Universal Church, let us be even more committed to praying for Australia and the rest of the World. Prayer is powerful. God is our Help and Comfort in times like this. 
Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. (Psalm 23:4).

Yours in Christ,

亲爱三一堂的弟兄姐妹们,

我在主里向大家致以问候!

众所周知,今天,全国的冠状病毒感染病例已达到惊人的928例。澳大利亚总理于3月20日宣布,任何封闭的公众集会都应受“每4平方米一人”的限制。

三一堂牧师和领袖们采纳了会督(Bishop Albert Wong)的指示,要求澳大利亚所有卫理公会从3月22日星期日开始转为直播或其他在线平台。尽管这是一个非常困难的决定,但它是确保我们教会成员尤其是老年人的安全的正确措施。中国近期的行动及成绩证明隔离的确是遏制病毒传播的最有效方法。

在礼拜天,崇拜小组及一些支持成员会在现场进行服务以确保流媒体播放顺利。但总人数必须随时保持在25人以下。

那些有受到病毒影响他们经济或收入的会员可以相应地调整其奉献。我们也继续为他们祷告。

由于此限制是在極短时间内执行,我们的直播将从基本的崇拜开始。由于法律限制,其他的崇拜事項将在未来几周内进一步评估及采纳,比如赞美和崇拜。我们将积极遵守并适应政府的指导方针。我们有专门团队在后台进行管理,也会定期向您汇報。

以下是临时安排:


1)崇拜时间(直播):

•国语-上午9:30
•英语– 11:00 AM
•Casey – 可以在9:30 am加入国语直播时间或收看以经录了的讲道视频。
*请注意,讲道视频只能保留24小时

2)参加直播请直上三一堂网站 www.trinitymc.org.au 直接按上欢迎到来主日崇拜。

3)崇拜程序:

•证道 
•家事分享 
•祝福差遣 


4)奉献方式
•在线银行转账 Trinity Methodist Church BSB 013231 A / C#2538 67139
•支票–付给Trinity Methodist Church - 寄给黄财务管理
•将您的现金产品放入信封,然后转给财务主管
*布道会(Casey PP)请用“CPP”为记,方便各堂会入账

请注意,所有教会的活动在短期内将被中止,直至另行通知。如果可行的话,我们鼓励某些小组将其程序切换为Zoom网内进行。英语祷告会也将通过Zoom继续进行。

这些小组包括:
• 青年团契
•妇女及成人团契
•圣经学习小组
•祷告会


我们教会是普世教会的一员,我们也因此应该更加致力于为澳大利亚和世界其他地区祷告。祷告是有力量的。在这样紧急的情况下,上帝将是我们的帮助和安慰。

我虽然行过死荫的幽谷,也不怕遭害,因为你与我同在,你的杖、你的竿都安慰我。 (诗篇23:4)。


在基督里
