CICC Statement
on COVID-19

(Updated 23rd March 2020)

We love you and want you to know that we are with you in this time of crisis.  Please consider the following:

In the light of the national and international scourge of Coronavirus we make the following statements:

1.   There is no need for fear. Dwell on promises like Isaiah 41:10 and trust this mighty sovereign God who is control of all viruses including the Coronavirus.

2.   We should not test God. Remember Luke 4 where Satan tempted Jesus to throw himself down from the highest point of the temple, citing a promise from Scripture that God would protect him (Luke 4:10-11)? Jesus’ response was that to do so would test (tempt) the Lord God which of course none of us has the right to do (Luke 4:12). Including Jesus. Was Jesus’ response a lack of faith? No. Was it wisdom? Yes.

3.   We agree with and will comply with the statements and requests made by our Prime Minister, at his press conference on Sunday night 22nd March.  The CICC church building is now closed for ALL meetings. CICC will not hold any public events in the building for AT LEAST FOUR WEEKS but UP TO SIX MONTHS. This is not a lack of faith, nor a lack of trust in God. It is, however, exercising the same wisdom Jesus did when he responded to Satan’s temptation.

4.   From Sunday 22nd March onwards, we began offering  an online service of approximately one hour in length. This service is produced at the church. It begins streaming at 11:00 am and includes worship, and a shortened sermon of about 20 minutes max. From the 22nd of March we will stream on Facebook Live. Within a week or two after that we hope to offer a more efficient online option. Please forgive us if we make mistakes earlier on as we get used to the technology which is new to all of us.

5.  In order to facilitate that on-line ministry, we have received advice from both the state and federal offices of local politicians, affiliated with both the Liberal and Labor Parties, that it will still be possible to have a small production team who will be involved, provided they keep the regulation safe space of 4 square meters around each individual.   They will meet at the church at 10:00 am at the latest and stream the service from 11:00 am.

6.  Our advice from our politicians is that NO ONE who is not involved directly in the service will be allowed to attend that production service.  As a general rule no children will be able to attend that production service.  Any person in the production team who develops any respiratory illness (including a cold) is asked to stay away from that service.

7.   Tithes and offerings. You are encouraged to maintain your tithes and offerings. The expenses of the church, including the support of Pastors, paying rent, paying bills etc. will still go on. The easiest way to pay your tithe will be on-line at the Website ( using a credit or debit card, via the “Give Here” button at the bottom of the page. Alternatively, you can pay directly into the church account using direct debit. Account details are: BSB: 06 5000. Acct: 1124 6015.

8.   This a difficult time for all of us. Let’s covenant to help each other, love each other, and not get cross with each other. We are all in this together. Let’s treat each other with the deep love and respect that comes from being brothers and sisters in Christ.

In love
Pastor Ralph Legge (Senior Pastor)

And Now For Some Really Good News...

God Loves You!

It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from, GOD LOVES YOU. The Bible says God loved the world so much … (John 3:16). You are part of the world and He loves you!

All Of Us Have Sinned!

That is equally true! Yes! Everyone of us has sinned. That sin cuts us off from God and, if it is not dealt with, it will eventually cut us off from Him forever. That’s what Hell is!

Jesus Died For People Just Like You!

This is great news. He died on the cross to take our sin. He died to take our shame, our guilt and even our sicknesses.

Repentance And Faith (Trust)!

Yes! It’s true you have to repent and trust in Jesus. But guess what. God gives you both repentance and faith as gifts. WONDERFUL GIFTS!!

Total Forgiveness Is Offered To You As A Free Gift From God!

How would you like God to say about you “Your sins and law breaking I will remember no more” (See Hebrews 9:17)? Wouldn’t that be fantastic. All of your sin, past, present and future, gone forever from God’s memory.

If you want to become a Christian contact us via this site, and make an appointment to see a Pastor.  We will then contact you.
