Being the Local Church and the Government Restrictions


It has been announced that on the 3rd of December all of NZ will enter the new Traffic Light situation. Along with many mandates affecting all areas of society, the church has not been left unaffected. We have been locked down and unable to meet; we have been told who can and can’t enter our buildings with and without vaccination certificates, and recently it has been mandated that all church staff who are not vaccinated will make the church liable for a $15 000 fine, whether you are asking for certificates or not. Our ability to meet, who we let through the door, and now the basis upon which we call a pastor have all been challenged and rewritten by the government. We are nearing the point of civil disobedience where we have no choice but to obey God rather than men.
