As you would have heard already, current lockdown restrictions will remain in place until 4pm Sunday 8th August, at least. Still, we intend to keep church life as "normal" as possible whilst many things are changing.
The following information was issued church-wide via email. If you did not receive an email, titled "Church Life Update", we advise that you, firstly, check your spam or promotions folder and secondly, email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can confirm your subscription to our mailing list or troubleshoot where necessary.
Here is a brief update of all that is still happening in the life of our Church, in the midst of this current lockdown.
Prayer – Location Pastors will lead a prayer initiative over the next week. They will be in touch soon, either directly or via social media, with the details of how you can participate.
Sunday Service will remain online This Sunday, and we encourage you all to join us via the Highway Church YouTube Channel, starting at 9 am. Don't be shy - engage in the Live Chat!
Highway Youth will have its own online Youth Service this Friday night. For more information on all things youth-related, head to Instagram and follow @hwyyouth.
Originals will be holding an Instagram live on Thursday night 5/8. Head to Instagram and follow @hwyoriginals for more.
Your kids won't be bored either, with Highway Kids Online available Sunday on the kid's page of our website. They also have Livestream Gaming happening on Thursday 5/8 at 4 pm. Parents keep your eyes peeled for the email with the links!
There are two other important matters that we would like to give attention to:
Every 5 years, the government conducts a national Census. The data that is collected helps communities, governments and businesses across the country make informed decisions. On Tuesday, 10 August, each household will undertake the National Census.
We encourage everyone in our church, as our ACC National Leader, Ps Wayne Alcorn, is encouraging all churches within the ACC Movement, to answer 'OTHER: PENTECOSTAL' to Question 23 on religion.
While this particular question is optional, we encourage you to respond and contribute to strengthening the Christian voice in our nation. A unified response from Pentecostal Churches to this question will help present a strong snapshot of who we are. This has a great impact on future Government decision and on the generations to come.
RightNow Media - Your free gift from us.
Highway has recently purchased a subscription to an extensive, new video library called RightNow Media - it's like the "Netflix of Video Bible Studies." It's a huge library of faith-based videos that can be accessed any place at any time.
During this time, where we can't meet together for Sunday Services or midweek gatherings, we want to arm you with resources that will encourage you until we can meet together again.
Highway's subscriptions entitles us to 1000 individual profiles, which is where you come in! You can create a profile for your family that gives you access to the full range videos!
Please do hesitate to reach out during this time. Stay connected however you can. We can't wait to be together again!
