Services are happening in all our campuses this coming Sunday. We’re worshipping together and we can’t wait to have you join us!

We want to assure you that Gateway has gone above and beyond to ensure the comfort and safety of our church family and the broader community. As there are restricted numbers in all of our campuses, please help us adhere to government guidelines by registering below to save your seat where required. All of our services in auditoriums require registration and check in. All our kids and youth programs at Ormeau, Redlands, Logan and City campuses also require registration, but at Mackenzie, our kids and youth can turn up and check in – we have plenty of space to welcome you.

If you are unable to join us at one of our campuses, we would love to see you at our GATEWAY ONLINE services – 8am, 10am & 6pm.

We look forward to worshipping together this Sunday, either in person or online.

FAQ

Sunday Services

Our team is closely monitoring government restrictions as they change. Each building and space within, differs in its capacity, and is signed accordingly. Our free ticketing system helps manage room limits to ensure the health and safety of our congregations, staff and volunteers.

We encourage you to arrive 15 minutes before your service to allow time to check in.

Mackenzie Campus:
Kids and Youth and volunteers in our Kids and Youth ministries can head straight to their designated areas. The team leaders will greet you and check you in. There is no need to pre-register.

Ormeau/Redlands/Logan/City:
When you arrive, our welcome team will greet you. Please have a printed or digital copy of your ticket with you (you receive this via email immediately after registering). Our team will scan this ticket to give you access into your campus building. You can then head to the auditorium or kids and youth space ready to join us in worship.

Members of a household will be able to sit together. However, the 1.5m social distancing rule applies to those from different households.

Gateway is cleaning, sanitising and operating in accordance with Queensland Government COVID-Safe requirements.

Our hospitality teams will have tea and coffee available after most of our services. Due to restrictions, this won’t be self-serve. Instead, our friendly team would love to serve you!

If you arrive without a ticket, you will be directed to our Help Desk where a friendly team member will help you out as best they can depending on the capacity remaining in our spaces. We encourage you not to arrive at your campus without pre-booking a ticket.

We encourage you to invite others to church, just make sure you book them a ticket too!

Other Information

If you are feeling sick and/or displaying symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you stay home and that you call 13HEALTH (13 43 25 84). We ask that you let us know if you are displaying symptoms, have been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19, or have been tested for COVID-19.

We also instruct all staff and attendees to practise good hygiene by frequently cleaning their hands. Hand washing should take at least 20 to 30 seconds. Wash the whole of each hand, covering all areas with soap before washing with water. If hand washing is not practical, alcohol-based hand sanitiser containing at least 60% ethanol, or 70% iso-propanol, is recommended. We will have sanitising stations set up on all our campuses for you.

Our facility cleaning and sanitisation processes include routine cleaning, spraying and wiping down all frequently handled surfaces and fogging of larger spaces every 3 weeks with a very safe, commercial grade surface disinfectant and protectant.

Fogging is just a process of spraying the chemical in very tiny droplets that thoroughly cover surfaces. GBC is using trained staff and volunteers with appropriate PPE to carry out the fogging whilst the spaces are not in use. The tiny droplets dry on the surfaces (hard and soft) and coat them with a microscopic protective layer that active kills bacteria, viruses and fungi for up to 30 days.

The chemical GBC is using is called SIQURA 75G Surface Sanitiser. Information about it can be found at www.siqura.com.au .

It is fully approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration. It is certified to kill 99.99% of bacteria and virus and forms a long lasting invisible barrier which defends against microbial attack. It is eco friendly and human friendly, contains no chlorides, bleaches, carcinogenic compounds and after its useful life it breaks down to harmless organic compounds. It is safe for use in kitchens and food preparation areas, as well as around children, pets and plants.

Siquera is used safely in hospitals, medical facilities, hospitality, childcare, aged care, schools, offices, gyms, food preparation areas, animal care, public transport, general household applications and on both hard and soft surfaces, including in fabrics, furniture and floor coverings.

GBC will be fogging these ministry spaces every 3 weeks and adding to that, additional sanitising by hand of all frequently handled surfaces.
