We are cancelling in-person worship services for the next little while. The update from the province on Tuesday, December 8, 2020 made clear that we could still gather with all of the old restrictions, but we would have to cap attendance at 15% of our capacity. For our sanctuary that might be about 20 people. It didn’t feel right to discourage some people from coming and not others, nor did we want to have someone at the door sending people away if we were already at our capacity. So, for the time being, we are switching back to an online only worship service.
We are also adding a time of fellowship beforehand. People have enjoyed being able to reconnect, and so we are hoping that a little time of chit chat before the service might help people feel connected. To connect, look for the link in the Trinity Trumpet (weekly announcement email), or contact the office.
We’re hoping that this will be a short-term arrangement, but we respect that as case numbers continue to rise, that we need to all be making sacrifices to help reduce the spread. We are loving our neighbour as we love ourselves by doing this.
We are trying to strike a healthy and responsible balance between safety and connection. Let us know if there are ways that you know we can be of more help to you. people you know in the congregation or the community around us.
We appreciate your understanding,
Trinity Mennonite Church
