As of September 2019 we generally have Divine Liturgy at 9.00am on the first and third Sundays of each month, with All-night vigil at 6.00pm the preceding Saturday evening.  For other services, please see our current Schedule of Services, below.  On the second of fourth Sundays of each month our rector serves at Saint Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church, Wallsend and on the fifth Sunday, when such occurs, he visits and serves on the Mid-North Coast of New South Wales.

Updated 6 December 2020:  From Monday 7 December 2020 attendance numbers at religious services in New South Wales are subject to the two square metre rule.  We are permitted 65 people because the total area of our church, adjoining hall and choir loft is approximately 130 square metres.  Although this means that restrictions have effectively been lifted for all evening and weekday services, the size of our parish is such that we will continue to manage attendance on Sundays and large services.  The only large weekday services in our parish during Sumer 2020-21 will be the Christmas services on 6-7 January.

 

In our parish approximately 100 people attend Sunday services regularly.  These people have now been divided into two teams of approximately fifty people each and most have been advised which team they belong to.  Team A may attend on the first Sunday of the month and Team B may attend on the third Sunday of the month. The 15 free places will be used to accommodate those not allocated to a team, occasional worshippers, and visitors.  Those allocated to a team who wish to attend Sunday services more frequently may email attendance@gosfordrussianchurch.org.au.  If possible, a place will be allocated.

 

Those wishing to attend a Christmas service on 6-7 January should express interest by 20 December 2020.  When expressing interest please indicate if the evening or morning service is preferred.  Places at Christmas services will be allocated to regular worshippers first, and then to family members and visitors in order of registration.
