SAFETY

Added extra health & safety measures:

Full vaccination for COVID-19 among participants is recommended by the Board but not required for participation.

All participants must wear a face mask when inside the church building.

Do not come to in-person service if you experience any of the following symptoms:

REGISTRATION

No longer required

As of March 11, we no longer require participants to register or sign-in for our Sunday Services. We highly encourage you to arrive on time to join us in-person!

  • As we require each participant to provide their contact information and health declaration, we highly recommend you to pre-register by Friday 5pm to reduce wait time on Sunday. (We do welcome walk-in's on the day of service, but we highly encourage you to pre-register to reduce wait time)
  • Registration for each Sunday Service will be made available after the previous Sunday Service and will close by 5:00 PM on Friday. All registrations will be taken on a first-come-first-serve basis (NOTE: The current capacity limit is 180, including the serving roster). 
  • To ensure that every eligible person who wishes to attend in-person service has the opportunity to do so, the Board reserves the right to all registration's final decisions.
  • Those with trouble registering online may register through the church office by phone (604-325-6314) during operating hours.
