Our services are held in our auditorium and for larger services we have additional seating in our hall.
There is a reserved area (4 rows left of the auditorium doors, at the back) for those who are medically vulnerable [eg. the immunocompromised, heart/lung conditions, elderly]. We think this reserved area is the safest part of the auditorium, given the configuration of our air flow. This reserved section of the auditorium will also be an area for mask wearers only.
Do I need to wear a face mask?
In line with the advice of the Federal and State Chief Health Officers, please view the recommendations for when to wear a face mask in Victoria.
Note: There are 4 rows of reserved seating along the left wall of the auditorium, for the medically vulnerable. Out of love and consideration for those seated here, we ask that face masks be worn when seated in this area.
Will there be Sunday School?
A Sunday School program (Kinder - Grade 6) runs during school term, and is available during our 9am & 11am Sunday Services.
Sunday School is held in our upstairs learning level and begins after the children's song.
If your child is unwell, we ask that you check our Health Guidelines before they attend Sunday School.
What if my child doesn't feel comfortable attending Sunday School?
Children are welcome to stay in the service.
Will there be Sunday Youth?
Sunday Youth (Year 7 & 8) runs during school term. Please contact our youth pastor for further details email@example.com
Will Creche be available?
Creche is available at the 9am & 11am service for 6 months of age to 2 year olds, and begins after the children's song.
Due to the changing availability of creche leaders, creche may not formally run on some weeks. During these weeks, parents are welcome to make use of the creche room area and a livestream feed of the service will be aired during the service time.
If your child is unwell, we ask that you check our Health Guidelines, before sending them to creche.
Where can I change or feed my baby?
A cry room is located left of the auditorium and has one-way glass windows, a change table and microwave/sink facilities. The disabled toilet also has changing facilities for babies.
After the service
Will refreshments be served?
Simple refreshments (eg. a biscuit and a cup of coffee/tea/water) will be available after the service. As there will be limited morning tea during the morning services, we encourage parents to pack nut-free snacks for children to eat before or after Sunday School, if they require it.
Can my kids play in the indoor playground?
Where parents are available to supervise, the indoor playground slide and gym is available for use after the service finishes.

How often does cleaning occur?
Cleaning occurs after each service, and any activity within the building.
How is the building ventilated?
Our main areas, the Auditorium, Foyer and Playground, have Air Change heat recovery units that brings in 100% fresh air. This is the best possible solutions as there is no recirculation of at all.
The remaining areas (generally ceiling mounted fully recirculating cassette units) have the mandatory outside (fresh) air requirements supplied by a fan and this additional air then leaks back to the common areas where it is either exhausted by the base building toilet exhaust system/s or leaks out through the building fabric.
The Board of Management intend to watch and follow the government’s current advice to school class rooms, and not use the recirculating units while they are occupied. We will turn them on to pre-heat or pre-cool the rooms before kids arrive and turn them off while the rooms are occupied. We will also regularly measure the CO2 levels in the rooms to ensure they are at acceptable levels during this time.
Can I go to church to drop off/pick up an item?
Our office hours are Wednesday and Friday, 9.30am-12pm, during school term. If you would like to access the building outside of these hours please contact the BPC office beforehand - email email@example.com or phone (03) 9017 9037.
When is Playgroup, mainly music held?

Can I borrow from the church library?
When the easing of Covid-19 restrictions allows, the BPC library will be open for those who wish to borrow books or DVDs. Visit the Library page for further details.
Who can I contact if I have other questions?
Should you have any other questions please contact us by emailing email@example.com or phone 9017 9037. A pastor or one of our staff team will reply to you as soon as possible.
What to do if you are sick?
The government no longer requires a Conditions of Entry policy so we no longer require people to stay away from church (and ministry groups) if they display any covid, cold or flu-like symptoms. If you or your child are sick, we ask and hope that people will love their neighbour and stay home. However, if one has passed the infectious period of an illness, and for example has, a post-viral (or occasional) cough, or a child has a slight runny nose, we don't want you (or families) to stay away unnecessarily.
If your child has an upper respiratory tract infection, with a runny nose and a productive cough, please refrain from sending them to Creche or Little Sunday School.
We ask that people make thoughtful and loving choices, as we seek to gather in person for the good of all.
What about other illnesses?
It is good to remember there are other infectious diseases and we do not want these to spread through church. We should follow the exclusion guidelines used by schools. For example, if your child has symptoms of gastro, you should exclude them from church until there has not been vomiting or a loose motion for at least 48 hours.
