We are pleased to announce that, consistent with the province's Stage 1 re-opening plans and Diocesan guidelines, we will re-open for in-person worship on Sunday, June 20. If you'd like to join us, advance registration is required and will open on Wednesday afternoon at 1pm. Volunteers will be in the office to take registrations by phone (519-438-2994) between 1-4pm on Wednesdays. Email registrations (using firstname.lastname@example.org) will also be accepted from Wednesday at 1pm until Thursday at 4pm.
Before registering, please review our health and safety protocols below.
There will be two services on Sundays, at 8:00am and 10:30am, each approximately 45 minutes long. The time in between services will be used for cleaning and sanitizing.
Each service will be limited to 40 parishioners (including Clergy and volunteers) to allow for proper physical distancing.
Face coverings are required for all persons over the age of two, as per Middlesex-London Health Unit guidelines. We encourage you to bring your own, though if you don’t have access to a mask, one will be provided.
While we understand it will be difficult for many, unfortunately we are not able to offer Sunday School or childcare in the Undercroft at this time.
With the exception of the sanctuary and atrium, the rest of our building will be closed during services. Please make use of the washrooms on the atrium level only.
Registration will be required for services to comply with capacity limits and for contact tracing purposes.
Self-screening for COVID-19 is required before attending worship. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, have come into contact with a confirmed or probable case, or have recently travelled internationally, you will not be able to attend services in person.
Please wear a face covering and enter through the Atrium doors (at Wharncliffe Rd.). You’ll be asked to use hand sanitizer when you arrive, answer the COVID-19 screening questions and sign in with a volunteer.
Next, you’ll receive your bulletin and will have the opportunity to leave your offering, as you are able, prior to entering the sanctuary.
Finally, you’ll be invited to a clearly marked seat in one of the pews. Family members in the same household will be able to sit together. Please keep your coat and belongings with you in your pew, as coat racks will not be available.
You are asked to remain in your seat for the entire service, with the exception of receiving communion.
Sadly, congregational singing is suspended for the time being, however, music will be provided in person by our music director, and occasionally by using recordings, a soloist, or other musician.
You’re invited to share the peace through peace signs, waves and bowing, from your pew.
During communion, a single station will be available at the front of the church. You are asked to stand physically distanced when waiting in line for communion.
Once at the front of the line, you will receive the bread. There will be no communion wine. After receiving the bread, move to the side, remove your mask, consume the host, replace your mask and return to your seat.
There will be no coffee hour and unfortunately, we will not be able to socialize with one another after the service. Please do not linger in the church building and exit promptly as directed by the volunteers.
