welcome back


Hybrid

in-person/streamed services

have started


Fellowship 9:30 am

Worship 10 am

We’re excited to be returning to regular, in-person worship services together with you.


We realize that we’re all moving at different speeds through these changes. 


In order to take a respectful and responsible path that promotes as much unity in the Body as possible, the leadership will be making the following recommendations and plans: 

sanitizing

We will have sanitization stations at the building entrances, inside the auditorium and handwashing stations in the washrooms. We recommend you sanitize upon entering the building and anytime you have a need to do so. We will be sanitizing high-touch and traffic areas before and after service. 


staying home if we're sick

While we won’t be engaging in pre-registration, health checks or contact tracing for the time being, we do recommend that you do regular health self-checks as outlined by WorkSafe BC and stay at home if you are feeling ill or showing symptoms. 

participating online

We are committed to continuing our online livestream services to make participation available for anyone who cannot attend in person for any reason. We will also be continuing to use a mixture of in-person and pre-recorded volunteers for our prayers, communion thoughts, and scripture readings to encourage full participation from everyone. Please contact the office if you would like to be added to our volunteer rotations!

contactless

communion & offering

To decrease our risk through shared contact, we’re going to use pre-packaged communion elements that will be at your seats when you arrive. We will also have a designated station for offerings, as well as the use of e-transfer for giving. 

wearing masks

The Public Health Order is clear that they will not enforce the mask mandate and vaccine passport checks for religious gatherings or worship services.  They do however gently state that leadership is supported in recommending these measures. 


We are therefore encouraging everyone to wear masks, as we are not asking for people to state whether or not they have been fully vaccinated.  

safe spaces

We are still recommending distancing where we can. We are re-organizing the auditorium seating to allow for greater spacing and will have a section where people who are more comfortable wearing masks and not singing may sit during the service (southwest corner). We encourage you to talk and socialize in small, spread out groups, making use of outdoor spaces as much as possible.

We love you, church, and we can’t wait to see you!
