Liberal MP Nathaniel Smith has launched a petition urging the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian to reopen churches.

On Wednesday, the member for Wollondilly called his own government to account after it was announced that by June 1 numerous venues, such as pubs, cafes and restaurants will be allowed up to 50 patrons at one time. Churches, on the other hand, are only permitted a maximum of 10 attendees.

“Yesterday I wrote to the Premier requesting that places of worship be included in the 1st of June announcements,” Mr Smith said in a Facebook video announcing the launch of the petition.

“Places of worship are not optional extras in the life of practising Christians and people of other faiths,” Mr Smith added. “They are as essential as their local supermarket or health clinic.”

The petition can be signed here.
