About this Event

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE

In order to help ensure the health and safety of everyone who comes to our service, the church building will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before and after each service.

Before you attend a service, please pre-register for a service here or by calling the office.

We will ask you to screen yourself for COVID-19 symptoms. If you feel unwell or are in a high-risk group, please stay home.

The size of our congregation is limited to no more than 50 people at 10am . This number include clergy, sides-people, musicians and the warden.

Prayer and hymn books will not be used. The complete service will be available on our website by the end of each week. You may download it onto your tablet/phone and printed copies will be available at the church.

All those who come to church will be required to wear a mask. You may wear a face shield as well as a mask, if you prefer. If you have your own mask, please bring it with you and put it on before you enter the building. If you don’t have a mask, or forget it, cloth/disposable masks will be available at the entrance to the church.

UPON ARRIVAL

There will be hand sanitizer dispensers at the entrances and exits as well as the communion line. You will be asked to sanitize your hands on entering and exiting the church, as well as before and after communion (bread only). There will be signs and social distancing lines on the floor to guide you.

When you arrive for a service, you will be asked to confirm your contact information, and your Covid-19 screening questions. If nothing has changed, you will be escorted to your reserved seats. If your condition has changed and you have symptoms of Covid-19 please stay home—for your safety and the safety of others.

When you register, you will be asked to provide your name, telephone number and/or email address. We are required to collect this information to help with contact tracing in case someone who has attended church later is found to have COVID-19. This information will be shredded after 30 days.

The service will be shorter as some elements of the service will be curtailed. An offering box & envelopes will be available as you enter the church but it will not be passed during the service.

In this phase, church school will be offered on-line only; families will be contacted. Children may attend if they can remain seated for the whole service and wear a mask.

DURING THE SERVICE

Physical distancing will be maintained at all times. There must be no touching outside your family group at any point before, during or after the service.

There will be music, however, the congregation is not permitted to sing.

Only the clergy will administer the Eucharist. They will sanitize their hands several times both before after the distribution of communion, in one kind (host), to the congregation.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE

Areas of the church not necessary for worship will be closed. Washrooms should only be used when urgently needed because they must be cleaned after each use.

To keep everyone safe and healthy, you are asked not to gather in the building or outside, before or after the service and to maintain physical distancing at all times.

Please don’t feel obliged to return to in-person worship if you do not feel ready or if you are in a high-risk group (because of age, underlying health conditions or as a caregiver to someone at high risk). Online services will continue to be offered and we are exploring ways to be more inclusive of those not able to attend in person.
