Here is where you will read about the impact of Coronavirus on RUC. Last updated 27 MAY 2020.

Sunday Worship

  • We're not closed - we're online! To join our online worship experience come here Sunday 9am - and click right here! You can actually come at anytime and join in.
  • With the announced time-line of possible opening dates we are exploring what that means for us and our worship. We have about 5 different worship 'events'. One large, many small. We are exploring what our future worship will look like since we can't have over 100 in worship for some-time.

In Recess or Online.

  • All groups have gone into Recess or gone online. Playgroup is online. Jzone [Sunday school] is also 'at home'. Email to get the lessons.
  • Many home groups are trying online, check with your leader.
  • We have a Tuesday morning prayer meeting 8am on Zoom. All welcome. Click here at 8am Tuesday.
  • For the time being, even though some groups may begin soon, we are being cautious. We are contacting leaders to see when they think they will be ready. Stay tuned for information when groups will resume.

General Information

  • The office is physically closed - but you can still call. 3283 4066.
  • To stay informed and cared for make sure we have your e-mail and phone number! email that information to
  • Please stay at home and look after yourself by connecting to God and others, exercising and eating well.
  • Everyone has been given a Pastoral Caller - someone to keep in touch with you. Don't forget to call others.
  • We have a small list of people who can go shopping or drop you off at the doctor - if you are a member of the church and need this help, give the office a call.

Financial Information

  • Because we expect a financial impact on our giving we are putting replacing the Generations Pastor on hold until the virus has passed. If you have been giving to this fund, the money is being kept in a seperate account, and if you need to put your giving to the Gen Pastor on hiatus for the time being, that is understandable.
  • If you can't get to church to give, you can give by clicking on the payments section.
  • We are eligible and now receiving the JobKeeper Payment. This means all staff who elected to receive it are recieveing it, and are working their pre-covid hours! This is a God-send and a blessing. Our staff are getting us ready for after Covid, and so many volunteers are also doing wonderful work!
  • We know life will be tough financially for some of our members, other may have capacity to give. We want to help people as we can. If you are in need, approach us. If you can give click on Payments and give to Welfare.
