COVID 19 Measures

From Monday, 23 March 2020 regular public services and parish organised group activities are suspended.

The OP Shops (both in Balnarring and Flinders) will not be operating until further notice.

Unfortunately, St John’s Flinders and St Mark’s Balnarring church plants will not be available for prayer and meditation, but the Parish is still here to support you. 

We are aware that these times are challenging for everyone, and individuals and families might be finding things a little tough.

Please pray for the world, and for the scientists who are working at developing a treatment and vaccine. God bless you.   Jennifer
