The province of Ontario entered into lockdown beginning December 26, 2020 and issued a stay-at-home order on January 14, 2021. We are following the guidelines given by our province and city. We want to ensure the safety of members of our congregation as well as those in our surrounding community.
Following these guidelines, there will be no in-person gatherings at the church until the government lifts their restrictions. According to the guidelines, we are still able to have under 10 people at the church for the purpose of conducting our livestream services, so we will be continuing to stream from our church building. We would love to have you join us for our livestream services every Sunday morning at 10am. While we are streaming on both Youtube and Facebook, the best way to connect to us and each other is on Youtube where you can use the live chat and enjoy a little more interaction.
Most of our small groups, Bible studies, and prayer groups are meeting online using ZOOM all through the week. For more info on what's happening at our church each week, check out our online bulletin!
Our weekly youth group for teens is also happening online on Fridays AT A NEW TIME: from 7-8:30pm.
We have a young adults group that meets every 2-3 weeks on Sunday nights from 7-8:30pm over ZOOM. We're currently going through the ALPHA series together. For more info CLICK HERE.
Every Sunday morning our livestream service features an interactive kids moment and we have weekly kids videos that feature music, drama, and animation! We really encourage kids to watch the weekly kids videos so that they can experience worship and teaching suitable for their age. For info on what we have for kids, click here.
