Our COVID – 19 Plan

To help you feel safe when you attend our services, we have detailed our protocols around COVID – 19. Our details WorkSafe BC plan is posted in the lobby of our facility near the fire plan.

Services

We have been meeting in three (3) services of fifty (50) congregants;

All congregants are required to register through our online system and have to agree to the following;

  • Are you experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms and/or feeling under the weather?
  • Do you agree to abide by physical distancing guidelines as instructed by the BC government?
  • Do you agree to sanitize the area you are located in before service?

All doors are opened to allow ‘no touch’ entrance and exit, bathrooms are equipped with ‘no touch’ opening equipment;

Each congregant has access to hand sanitizer, complimentary masks and soap and water located in the washrooms and four other areas around the facility;

In addition, each congregant is given disinfectant wipes to clean their seating area before they sit down, this is done for all services;

We ensure physical distancing at all worship service by placement of chairs;

We have ensured a minimum of 3 meters between performers, speakers and congregants;

Cleaning

Our building is cleaned twice a week with attention given to the pre-service cleaning and disinfecting of the whole building;

We wipe down all high touch areas in between worship services and disinfect the main room within the 20 minutes between services;

We have minimized touchable surfaces by eliminating the distribution of bulletins, offering baskets, and communion elements (These are now single serving containers prepackaged) while encouraging online giving and bulletins;

We have purchased two (2) industrial disinfectant foggers for use in our facility;

Movement of People

Instead of entering at the front of the building, the entrance will now be the East doors in the back by the green space;

While we encourage you to participate in altar prayer at the close of service, we ask that you please exit the Main Room promptly into the foyer. Here you can pick up your child from Kids Church, stop by our Connect Centre, and Cashier Window. If you are desire to chat and catch up with friends, please do so in outside the building near the west doors;

The capacity of our main room capacity is 500, and we currently have it set up for 50 congregants;
