You can now register to join us for in-person Sunday worship services! To ensure everyone’s health and safety, registration is required prior to our Sunday services each week. Registration will open every Tuesday and close when we have reached our limit.
Our safety measures are informed by the COVID-19 guidelines recommended by Toronto Public Health and the Ontario Ministry of Health. We are making every effort to ensure our worship services are a safe and meaningful experience for everyone.
Before you register to join us, please take the time to carefully read all of the information on this page. The information will be updated as provincial guidelines shift. If you have any questions, please contact us.
What You Need To Know
Before You Visit:
Our in-person service times are 9 & 11:30 AM every Sunday. Please register for the service you plan to attend. You can also watch our 11:30 AM service live online.
Registration is required prior to our services each week. We are limiting the number of people in each service at this time to allow for increased physical distancing. The registration will also lead you through the necessary COVID-19 screening questions.
You will receive a registration code in your email once you have successfully registered. Please have this ready when you arrive for the service on Sunday. Your answers to the COVID-19 screening questions will also be confirmed at this time.
Masks or proper face coverings must be worn at all times inside the building.
A safe distance of two metres (six feet) must be kept at all times between different households.
We have increased rigorous cleaning throughout the building, ensuring high touch areas are disinfected multiple times throughout the day. Sanitation stations will also be available throughout the building.
What To Expect
When You Get Here
The front entrance doors will open 30 minutes before each service begins. Please plan to arrive before doors open, to avoid line-ups or delays.
When you arrive, our Welcome Team will guide you to our front entrance. Please have the registration code you received by email ready – you can pull it up on your phone or bring a printed copy.
We will be confirming your answers to the COVID-19 screening questions before you enter the building, to ensure nothing has changed since you registered.
Please follow the directional signage and the guidance of our Welcome Team to safely get to your seat.
To minimize contact, we encourage you to give online or by texting the keyword PeoplesGive to the number 77-9-77. If you prefer to give in person, your offering can be placed in the offering boxes as you leave the building after the service is over.
Washrooms are accessible with a maximum capacity clearly stated and enforced. If you need to use the washroom during the service, please follow the directional signage to the back of the auditorium and our Welcome Team will assist you.
We ask that you stay seated until the service is over. Our host will share instructions about how to leave the building safely.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will the church building be properly ventilated?
We have confirmed with our HVAC supplier that our ventilation systems are safe and up to standard.
Are COVID vaccinations mandatory?
While we encourage COVID vaccination as a key safety measure, we are not currently requiring proof of vaccination to enter the church building. We welcome all who are able, and who adhere to the mandated safety protocols, to come and worship with us.
The only exception is that we require all staff and volunteers who work with children to be vaccinated.
Should the provincial guidance on this issue change, we will adjust accordingly.
Will we be able to sing together?
We acknowledge that public health guidance suggests that we avoid singing. However, as it is a core part of the way we worship our Lord, we have put in place other safety measures (mandatory masks, distancing, ventilation) to allow us to worship in this way.
What if I have trouble with registering?
You can call the church number (416.222.3341) and leave a message. Our Welcome Centre staff will call you back to assist you with the registration process.
Please note – leaving a message does not mean you have registered. You must receive an email confirmation or a verbal confirmation from our Welcome Centre staff over the phone to be successfully registered. To avoid any potential delays, we encourage you to ask a family member or friend for assistance first, if possible.
How can I cancel my registration?
If you would like to cancel your registration, please let us know by calling the church number (416.222.3341) and leaving a message.
What if I am late for the service I registered for?
Of course, we will welcome you, but please plan to arrive before doors open, to avoid line-ups or delays. Arriving late does not only mean you will miss important parts of our worship experience, but it can also be disruptive to the worship experience of others. Our doors will open 30 minutes before each service begins.
Can I move around in the auditorium?
When you arrive, our welcome team will be guiding you to your seat in the auditorium. For everyone’s health and safety, we ask that you do not leave your designated area during the service.
Can I go to the washroom during the service?
Washrooms are accessible during the service with a maximum capacity limit. Please follow the directional signage to the back of the auditorium and our Welcome Team will assist you.
What if I need support during the service?
If you need support with anything during the service, please follow the directional signage to the back of the auditorium and our Welcome Team will assist you.
How will we be taking communion together?
When you arrive on the Sundays we take communion together (usually the last Sunday of each month), you will be able to pick up prepackaged communion elements before entering the auditorium.
Can I stay in the building after the service to socialize?
The building will be thoroughly cleaned after each service. For everyone’s safety and to help with our cleaning schedule, everyone will be asked to leave the building promptly after each service. Our service host will share instructions about how to exit the building safely.
