COVID UPDATE - Sept 14th, 2021
Nova Scotia announced this week that we will remain in Phase 4 of the re-opening plan until October 4th. This means that effective on October 4th we will no longer require pre-registration, masks, social distancing nor will there be any gathering limits. For the time being we will continue to follow health guidelines and pre-register for gatherings.

Do you have Nursery for my child?
Yes, the Nursery is available for those sitting on the UPPER LEVEL of the auditorium at the 9:30AM service. In order to access our Nursery please register to attend a service on the UPPER LEVEL. As always you can ask any of our amazing team members at registration for help.
Why do I have to Pre-Register?
Physical distancing has limited the capacity of our auditorium. Plus, in keeping with instructions from the province of Nova Scotia, we are collecting contact information for all persons attending our gatherings. Names will be checked at the door, and if the need arises, this list will be used by the province for contact tracing.
How do I check-in?
Upon arrival, proceed to the check-in table in the lower or upper lobby. If there is a lineup, wait your turn while using the floor markings to help maintain physical distancing. Announce your name to the volunteer, who will then confirm your name on the registration list. Hand sanitizer will also be offered (available at the check-in table and at dispensers in the lobby), or you may choose to wash your hands in the washroom with soap and water instead.
Do I have to wear a mask?
As we are considered a 'public space' masks are required for all in-person gatherings as per government restrictions. There are exemptions which can be found on the NS Government website.
How do you do social distancing?
In accordance with provincial guidelines, we are requiring physical distancing of at least six feet. This includes during arrival and departure, when distancing rules are most likely to be forgotten. This does not apply to people within a "friends and family bubble", but do not automatically assume that others consider themselves within your "bubble". Be respectful of the space of others and allow them to maintain physical distancing. You will find markings along the floor at check-in as well as tape sectioning off every second pew to allow for proper distancing.
There’s something powerful about coming together as the Church, so even with some extra hurdles right now, it’s well worth it. Thank you for your patience as regulations and practices continue to evolve. We look forward to gathering together with you to worship!
