As part of the BC’s Restart Plan step 3 which has begun on July 1, 2021, there are no longer any capacity limits or restrictions on religious gatherings and worship services.

We are very excited to meet together again as a church family. As we reopen our worship gatherings, we recognize that you may have questions as to what to expect, so there are a few things to consider:

Pre-registration: Starting July 18th, we will be welcoming our church family back to our worship services without capacity limits. Therefore, it is not necessary to register in advance to attend.

Worship Seating: Seating in the Sanctuary, Nursery, and Annex will be spaced-out as possible, and we encourage congregants to sit with their household bubble. We ask that you socialize outside after the service as much as possible.

Worship Liturgy: Our worship services will be as usual including prayers, live music, reading of scriptures, preaching of God’s Word. Singing will now be permitted. Communion will be offered in prepackaged communion cups with wafer and 100% grape juice.

Masks: Masks are recommended in our church for all people 12 and older. Masks are optional for children aged 2 to 12. Children under 2 should not wear masks.

Children Program: Children are welcomed to meet together again but they have to stay with their parents at all times. Children Worship and Children Sunday School will still be held online.

Live-streamed Services: We will currently continue to live-stream our worship services at the scheduled time for those who are unable or choose not to attend in person.

We fully understand that this transition back to in-person gatherings will take some time, and that everyone has different circumstances and comfort levels. Our hope and prayer are that these worship gatherings, whether you join in-person or continue to watch on-line, would help us all grow as disciples of Jesus.
