In response to the global spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus, federal and provincial implemented public health guidelines and restrictions for businesses and organisations.
After several months away, churches across the province are slowly reopening again with limited capacity. Christ Church, Bolton, is among those parishes. Given we are in the provincial grey zone, we can only seat 15% of our regular capacity for public worship. At this time, we will only permit 20 people, in addition to our celebrant, to public worship. Visit our worship page to see the current schedule of daily liturgies. We ask that you email us prior to the service you wish to attend to confirm your attendance.
The College of Bishops for the Diocese of Toronto issued protocols for public worship in churches across the diocese. Recognising that each parish has different facilities and circumstances, the bishops asked parish priests and wardens to implement safety protocols and articulate their own plans for reopening, plans that must align with public health guidelines and diocesan protocols.
To help you learn what we are doing at Christ Church, our pastor and wardens have shared the following materials. We ask that you review them and respect all parish guidelines.
We look forward to sharing with you in public worship. While we will continue live-streaming our prayer and worship, it will be a delight to have you with us in person in a safe and respectful environment.
