Dear Church family,

As most of you will know, New Zealand is moving to COVID-19 alert level 4 at 11.59pm this Wednesday 25 March 2020.

This means everyone outside of essential services must stay at home and restrict interactions with others outside of those in your households.

While this presents some new challenges, it also presents great opportunities to be proactive in caring for others, checking in on our neighbours, contacting the elderly, and being a light in our communities.

We encourage you to go for a walk, exercise and enjoy nature, but do keep a 2-metre distance from others outside of our households at all times.  Continue to connect with others via phone, messaging and social media etc.

If you are concerned about any COVID-19 symptoms you are experiencing, please contact Healthline (for free) on 0800 358 5453 or your doctor. The most up-to-date information on COVID-19 is available at

Over the next few Sundays we will be recommending an online teaching for your Sunday morning viewing.  The link to each teaching will be posted in this News section of our website each Saturday afternoon.

We will also be posting encouraging daily devotions from the elders, pastors and other leaders.  Once again, these will be posted on this news page.

Lastly, if anyone has any concerns and would like prayerful support, please feel free to contact one of the Elders or Pastors.

God bless,
Church on Vogel Elders
