    As we adjust to the new normal in regard to COVID-19, we continue to encourage:

    • Practicing hygiene standards recommended by NSW Health.
    • Exercising basic COVID-safe precautions (coughing/sneezing into a tissue or elbow, not hands, and frequent hand-washing/sanitising, etc.)
    • Wearing a mask is encouraged, which continues to be the recommended method of preventing the spread of germs
    • Being mindful and respectful of those still taking precautions for themselves (avoid invading personal space)
    • Testing and staying home/isolating if you’ve tested positive for COVID or are exhibiting any flu-like symptoms.

    For more information on how we will mitigate the risk of a Covid outbreak, please visit our website:

    All members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church are part of a constituency, which is defined as a group of voters in a specified region who elect representatives from the local church.

    Every four years representatives elect conference leadership, receive reports from conference ministries and entities (Adventist Book Store, Aged Care and Education), and vote on general decisions and church business. Reports on audited finances, church membership, and other statistics are also received and voted upon. Constituency meeting delegates will also vote on any proposed changes to the Conference constitution.

    A quadrennial overview for all branches of the Conference will be compiled into a Constituency Meeting report booklet. Delegates will receive a hard copy to review prior to the meeting. The Conference President, General Secretary and Chief Financial Officer will give their reports at the Constituency meeting. Departmental leaders and directors will provide account for their department/ministries via a Q&A panel during the meeting.
