Hi Church!

In response to Prime Minister Scott Morrison's address, this weekends Sunday services will be altered slightly because of necessary internal gathering restrictions.

The great news is: Church is still happening! 

Both 9am and 11am services will be taking place outdoors.

Our REK childrens church services will also still be on.

The weather forecast is mild, so please come dressed appropriately for the weather, and bring a hat and sunscreen to be sun safe.

We would like to request that, as expected by the community, if you are feeling unwell or experiencing flu-like symptoms please remain at home to protect all attending church.



At River Edge Church, we aim to provide a safe environment for all who attend our services and programs. When it comes to the current outbreak of Coronavirus, we believe it is important that we respond practically and wisely to minimise the spread of this disease.

We have considered the recommendations from the Australian Government and Department of Health, and are sharing some precautionary measures to put in place to manage the potential risk for our church family.

As of Wednesday 18th March, at 2:00 pm, there have been no confirmed cases of the COVID 19 virus in the greater Mildura region.


We are proactively working to ensure that we provide a clean, sanitary and safe environment for people to encounter Jesus. Our facilities team will be thoroughly cleaning before and in between services. Hand sanitizer will be made available for use at key places throughout the building, if needed.


Australian Government Department Of Health Recommendations:


  • Good hygiene is the best defence against the spread of infection. This includes:

– Regularly washing your hands with soap and water;
– Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze;
– Avoiding close contact with those who have been infected;
– If you or your child is feeling unwell, please stay home and seek medical attention;
– Government and Health professionals are advising that personal greetings should be limited contact, no hugging, handshaking or kissing.

  • If you are feeling unwell or showing symptoms:
  • Surgical masks are only recommended to members of the community who are displaying symptoms.
  • The Dept of Health has released a fact sheet Information for Parents. If your child is unwell, please may we ask you not to send them to the Kids program.
  • If you experience any respiratory-related symptoms or a fever (including but not limited to temperature, cough, shortness of breath, rapid breathing, a sore throat, or a runny nose), please consult your doctor and stay at home and rest (for a period of 14 days).
  • If you have reason to believe you may have Coronavirus, it is important that you seek medical attention early. Make sure you call ahead so that your doctor's surgery can be prepared. National Coronavirus Health Information Line: 1800 020 080
  • If you are unwell and serve on our Church team, please let your Team Leader know ASAP, so we can organise alternative arrangements plus pray and care for you (we don’t want you to feel isolated).


These measures are not to cause fear or alarm. We want to reassure you that we are committed to your health and well-being, and will be praying for everyone in our church family.  We remain people of faith, with our hope and trust in the Lord. (Psalm 91 is a great encouragement at this time!)


Warm regards,

Stephen and Kylie Taylor
