Sunday Church is Back!
As of Sunday 20 September 2020 we have re-started our Sunday morning face-to-face services and we can't wait to have you join us!
We want to assure you that Mackay Baptist Church has gone above and beyond to ensure the comfort and safety of our church family and the broader community. As there are restricted numbers in our auditorium, please help us adhere to government guidelines by registering to save your seat for the service that you will be attending. Options are:
Registrations open the Tuesday before each service. You can find this at: trybooking.com
It is intended that both church services will be streamed live on YouTube. Note for previous Facebook viewers that we can't (at the moment) also stream to Facebook, so please use the below link:
Sunday Services Information:
How many people can fit in the building?
Our team is closely monitoring government restrictions as they change. Currently, the auditorium capacity is 80, and is signed accordingly. Our free ticketing system helps manage capacity limits to ensure the health and safety of our congregations, staff and volunteers.
What time should I arrive?
We encourage you to arrive 15 minutes before your service to allow time to check in.
What are the service times?
We will have two services on Sunday, an 8:30am and a 10:30am.
Can I still watch from home?
Yes. Online streaming of the service will continue. Please be patient if we encounter any technical difficulties.
Can I sit with others?
Members of a household will be able to sit together. However, the 1.5m social distancing rule applies to those from different households. When you arrive, you will see signage showing how many seats you should leave between you and the next household.
Will there be children’s ministries during the service?
At this point, no children’s ministries will operate during the services.
Will there be tea and coffee after the service?

When will tickets be released?
We will be releasing tickets every Tuesday from 9am for the upcoming Sunday services. Tickets will be available through TryBooking.com and you will need to pre-register each week. A link will be included in the Weekly Update email and on the Mackay Baptist Church Facebook page.

What do I do if I don’t have a computer or mobile phone to book tickets?
If you do not have a device to book the tickets online, you can contact our church office for assistance. You can book tickets through our church office after 9am on a Tuesday. To do this please call 07 4957 3784. Please note that you cannot book tickets over the phone on Saturdays, Sundays or during the evenings as our office is closed.
Information about Phone Bookings
Tickets are released on the Tuesday before each service and are available until Friday afternoon (when the Office closes). Phone bookings can only be taken the week of the Church service you will be attending, and you will need to pre-register each week. Unfortunately, I cannot take ‘ongoing’ bookings for every week. We are using this booking system to assist us in organising and managing up to 160 bookings weekly.
If you don’t have a computer or mobile phone to book tickets, please call 07 4957 3784. Please note that you cannot book tickets over the phone on Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays, or during the evenings when our office is closed.
If you are feeling sick and/or displaying symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you stay home and that you call 13HEALTH (13 432 584). We ask that you let us know if you are displaying symptoms, have been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19, or have been tested for COVID-19.
We also instruct all attendees to practise good hygiene by frequently cleaning their hands. If hand washing is not practical, alcohol-based hand sanitiser is recommended. We will have sanitising stations set up for you.
As we prepare to return to face-to-face services, we are mindful of the current health situation occurring in Queensland and other states. If the Government restrictions change, we will inform you if this impacts on our return to services.
