Cabra Matters 1/6/20 - Special Edition COVID19 Roadmap Ahead
This week we have a special edition on the COVID19 Roadmap for our church. We currently face 3 options ahead for our gatherings. Tune in as we visualise what each one looks like, and voice our questions and concerns behind each one.    1. Can you jump on to www.cabra.church/gathering and spend 5-10 minutes sharing your concerns and feedback? We'd like to hear your voice as we make some big decisions for what gathering will look like in the upcoming months.   2. If you're available, can you come to one of our "Town Hall" meetings? Our hope for these meetings is to have a dialogue to hear your questions and concerns regarding the 3 options ahead. It'll also be a place for us to brainstorm alternative solutions and hear your input. We want to be decisive yet collaborative in this season and so please use either of these 2 meetings as an opportunity to share your voice.    Details: #1 Sat 6th June 1:30-2:30pm. #2 Mon 8th June 8-9pm. For security reasons, the meeting link and password will be shared via our congregation's facebook page just prior to the meeting.
