What You Need To Know
Before You Visit:
Our in-person service times are 9 & 11:30 AM every Sunday. You can also watch our 11:30 AM service live online.
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.
We continue to ensure high touch areas are disinfected throughout the day. Sanitation stations are also available throughout the building.
What To Expect
When You Get Here
The front entrance doors will open 30 minutes before each service begins.
When you arrive, our Welcome Team will be available to guide you to our front entrance and help you find your way into the auditorium.
As of Sunday, March 6, 2022, we will no longer be screening for symptoms or scanning registration codes before each service.
Check-in is required for our TPC Kids program at 9 AM and Junior Youth programs at 9 & 11:30 AM. Parents/guardians are required to drop-off and pick up their kids and youth. Learn more about TPC Kids here and TPC Junior Youth here.
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.
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.
What if I am late for the service?
Of course, we will welcome you, but please plan to arrive early. 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 go to the washroom during the service?
Washrooms are accessible during the service. Please make your way to the back of the auditorium and our Welcome Team will be available to help direct you to the closest washroom.
What if I need support during the service?
If you need support with anything during the service, please make your way 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?
Once the service is over, you can remain in the auditorium to pray with a pastor. Our common spaces, including the lobby and Connection Centre, are open and available for you to connect with others.
Where can I learn more about COVID updates at The Peoples Church?
