In-Person Worship has Begun!

Please read the guidelines carefully

You are invited to in-person worship. Services will continue to be videotaped so that anyone who is not comfortable attending in-person may still participate. Please note that worship services will be posted on Sunday afternoons by 3 pm.

We are excited to welcome you back but with the following guidelines. Please read them over carefully.

Questions you should ask yourself before coming to church:
– Do you have a fever?
– Do you have a cough?
– Are you having trouble breathing?
– Have you traveled outside Canada in the last 14 days?

You can attend Sunday worship only if you have answered “No” to the above four questions.

Please enter the building through the main doors leading to the sanctuary (all other doors will be locked). If needed, use the washrooms downstairs under the Narthex.

St. Columba volunteers will welcome you and guide you through the following:

Steps to be taken before entering the building:
– Wear a mask (we have extras if you forget)
– Your hands will be sanitized (we have plenty of sanitizer!)
– Answer “NO” to the above four questions

Steps to be taken inside the building:
– Give name for registration
– Socially distance while inside, sitting on your own or in family groups.
There are plenty of single chairs set up. Do not move any of the chairs – ask a
volunteer for help.
– Follow the directional arrows
– No singing (we will have soloists/family quartets singing hymns at a distance.)

If you are not on PAR, you are invited to leave your offering in the offering bowl as you enter or exit the sanctuary.

Please arrive a few minutes early to allow time for all of our Covid safety measures. Thanks for your patience, as we learn to worship and be a community during this time.

Please contact your elder or the church office if you have any questions. Thanks to the Covid task group for their ongoing work.
