Covid-19 Update January 2021

Grace and peace to you in Christ Jesus our Lord,

We are now into the Season of Lent and as of November 25th 2020 we continue to follow the direction from the Province and the Health Authority mandating a reduction of our building capacity from 1/3rd capacity to 30 people plus those who facilitate the Service. At first this was to be in place until December 17th and was extended by the Province through Christmas it has now been extended through Holy Week and Easter Sunday 2021 into April. This covers weddings, funerals, baptisms outside of Sunday and Church Services as well as any other functions that the Church might hold during that time. We will continue to follow recent Public Health Orders mandating masks must be worn at all times indoors.

Keeping with the Spirit of slowing down, not locking down, the Church had voluntarily suspending Bible Studies, Classes and the majority of other activities that were planned to take place before the 17th of Dec, this was extended through Christmas. Some of these activities will slowly begin to resume, we are closely monitoring the situation in Regina in order to determine how best to move forward.

Registration for Church Services will continue and we will continue to have Divine Service with Holy Communion at 9 and 11am on Sundays.

Weekly opportunities to receive Holy Communion outside of Sundays will still be available with one small time and day change:

                  Tuesday Morning                      9am – 10:45am

                   Wednesday Evening                 7:30pm – 9:15pm

                   Saturday Morning                     9am – 10:45am    

Wednesday evening provides a chance once a week for those working during the day to come for Holy Communion. This change will be in place for the foreseeable future.   

With love yours in Christ Jesus,
