We also extend our thanks on your behalf to all those who have assisted in facilitating the booking and attendance of liturgies in line with the government guidelines.
As per the government directive, from the 1st of June 2020 we may have up to 20 people attending the liturgy, in addition to the 7 liturgical servants (priests and deacons) To allow a smooth booking process for all, please see the guidelines below.
1.If you have not already done so, please visit www.oakleighcopts.org/liturgy-booking and folow the instructions to set up an account and add each individual family member.
2.God willing, at 7pm Sunday the 30th of May, more liturgies will be available for booking up to the 21st of June. Please do not register if you have already attended a liturgy in the last few weeks so that everyone can receive the blessing of attending the Liturgy and partaking of the Holy Eucharist. Please note that the booking system automatically allocates an individual to a waiting list if he/she has previously attended a liturgy.
If you require assistance with registration please contact Mr Mina Soliman on 0450 737 366 who can assist members of the congregation who are having dificulties with registration

How can I know if I’ve confirmed a spot in liturgy in the online booking application?
Check your status under “my bookings” tab, if your status is “registered” your spot in the liturgy is confirmed.
What does status “Registered” mean for my booking ?
“Registered” means your event’s attendance is confirmed.
What does status “Waiting” mean for my booking ?
“Waiting” means the event is fully booked and your name is placed in a waiting list for this event.
If my status is waiting, what are the chances that I’ll attend the event?
Once a registered person cancel, a position will be available for the first person waiting.
What does “Waiting List Only” mean for an event ?
The event is fully booked. Any new booking will be added to waiting list.
Can I still register my name in an event while congregation number is 0 and shows “Waiting List Only” ?
Yes you can as far as booking is still opened and not closed.
Can I attend a liturgy or vesper without putting my name in the application ?
No, any person to book a church service, need to put his/her name in the application.
Why do I need to register my name in the online application to attend liturgy or vesper?
The online application helps the church to abide by government and state rules and restrictions.
Do I have to provide my name and phone number for registration?
Name and contact details are required for identification and tracking purposes in case of any incidence.
I am a deacon and ticked “IsDeacon” in my profile. Can I attend as a deacon once I am registered for a liturgy?
No, you need to receive an offer to attend as a deacon. Once you receive an offer, you need to respond within 24 hours. You can respond by accepting or rejecting the offer. Once you accept and your status changes to “accepted”, you are required to serve in the liturgy.
When I was booking, I received an Alert “You have reached the max allowed submission per week: 1” what does that mean? What should I do?
To give fair chance for everyone. Every person is allowed to have only one submission every week. To book an event, you need to cancel any opened submission.
