At 11.59 pm on
Wednesday 25 March,
Aotearoa - New Zealand moved to National Alert Level 4
in response to the
COVID-19 global pandemic.
What does this mean for our WMCNZ whānau and churches?
As a movement, we have an opportunity to model what it means to love our neighbours in a radical way in the days and weeks ahead.
It starts by staying at home and maintaining full compliance with the Government’s directives.
Love looks like keeping your family, friends, neighbours and church members safe.
No church gatherings of any size can take place from midnight on Wednesday 25 March. This includes gatherings of people of any size other than those living in a household. All in-person church services, small groups, prayer meetings and youth groups must be cancelled. It also includes in-person pastoral visitation.
Government travel restrictions are to be followed and church premises must be locked for the duration of the Level 4 Alert.

Though our buildings and meeting places may have been locked, the church - the people of God are still open. The author of life is still writing a story of hope in our hearts, in the church and in our nation.
The way we connect over the coming days and weeks might change, but we are still connected. We are still one body, of many parts, magnificently woven together.
