All Gathering Suspended
On Friday 13th March the Church Board made the decision to suspend all regular gatherings at The Avenue in response to the challenge presented by the COVID-19 virus.
This decision was not taken lightly but was seen as a responsible way of helping to ensure the health and wellbeing of those members of our community who are in high-risk categories. We felt that it was preferable for the whole community to act in solidarity and choose not to gather rather than put the responsibility on those we may consider to be at risk to absent themselves. The consensus wisdom was that if we don't absolutely need to meet in groups then don't!

Your comment and feedback is very welcome.
The Avenue Church of Christ is pleased to make its facility available to community-based organisations who provide a diverse range of services, activities, courses and events that strengthen the fabric of the community and enrich the lives of people. These include groups for painting, pilates, yoga, dance, and more. We celebrate the diverse and energetic mix of people who call our facility home: it is a multicultural, multifaith, multi-talented, intergenerational, and intentionally inclusive community, and we are committed to resourcing it so that all people can be empowered to live life to the full.
We maintain an affiliation with Churches of Christ in Victoria & Tasmania to facilitate access to an even more diverse resource base, to share with other like-minded groups in the development of communities of hope and compassion, and to ensure appropriate and rigorous accountability for our use of resources – human and material.
