Why are you implementing all of these rules?
We are taking as much care as possible to keep everyone safe. We must all do our part to follow the directives implemented by the provincial government to maintain safe protocols. It is our goal that we follow the highest standards to ensure everyone stays safe.
Who is putting together all of these rules?
In the interest of transparency, we formed a taskforce who has been working on monitoring all provincial and public health directives. They have been working together to draft and implement a plan that follows these directives. They shared their ideas with the board and worked as a team to put together a plan. They will continue to monitor and work as a team to implement any changes as new information is available. Their goal is that everyone is safe as the church reopens.
When will our church return to the way things were?
At this point in time, we do not have the answer to that. We continue to review all provincial directives, public health advisories and ask God for direction and protection. While we are encouraged by the recent updates, we need to maintain all possible safety precautions to keep everyone safe.
