Some important details as we resume in-person gatherings:

 While we look forward to meeting in our home church building, there are aspects of the service that will feel different. This will be challenging; we ask for patience and grace from everyone as we navigate what Sundays will be like for the the time being! A few things to expect:

  • Please do not attend if you are not well! Anyone experiencing flu symptoms or feels uncomfortable meeting in person is invited to watch from home to join our worship and teaching.
  • Sunday mornings will be available to stream on Facebook live (even if you do not have a Facebook account).
  • Physical distancing is key. Even though we all miss one another, please maintain two meters distance between households and respect these guidelines throughout the entirety of the service.
  • Our main doors will function as the entrance, while the side doors will be used as the exit.
  • Chairs will be set up in pockets which allow people to be physically distanced as we enjoy the service. Please take time to find a pod of seats for the size of you/your family.
  • Face coverings are now mandatory according to temporary bylaw 6239. Please bring a mask from home or see our host team for a disposable one as you enter.
  • Singing is discouraged by AHS; praying along with worship lyrics, or humming along are suggested alternatives to singing aloud.
  • While families are encouraged to be present on Sundays, our kids ministries will not be offered in July and August.
  • We will not have coffee or fellowship time during the service. Instead, we would suggest people fellowship in the park after church in smaller groups, etc.
  • Regular points of contact will be sanitized before, throughout, and after the service.
  • Attendance cards will be distributed to those who attend. Attendance records will only be used in the unlikely event of COVID-19 transmission; otherwise records are destroyed after two weeks.

Please continue to pray pray for our church as we move forward!
