Yorkminster Park Reopens for In-Person Worship

Since the outset of the Covid-19 pandemic we have been webcasting our Sunday morning services from behind closed doors. We are so appreciative of our webcasting ministry, but oh how we miss seeing one another. The good news is that we are now preparing to reopen our doors for Sunday morning worship, and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Sunday, September 13th will be a closed live rehearsal with a small number of congregants attending our morning service.

• Sunday, September 20th there will be a limit of 50 congregants.
  You must register to attend, and there will be no walk-ins allowed.

• Sunday, September 27th there will be a limit of 50 congregants.
   You must register to attend. Walk-ins will be allowed based on availability.

You will be able to register online via Eventbrite.ca or by calling the church office 416-922-1167.

For several months a committee has been working hard to ensure that when we reopen, we will be following the regulations established by the various levels of government and ensuring that we are doing all we can to maximize the health and safety of one and all. For this reason, there will be a number of protocols that we all need to follow. These will include wearing masks and practicing physical distancing. It will also be sometime before we can join our voices in congregational hymns and there will be a number of other procedural differences designed to protect us. However, there will be music and praise, prayers will be offered, and the Word of God will be proclaimed from the pulpit.

There will be some who need to take their time to come back and for their sake and the sake of so many others, the webcasts will continue to be offered. Unfortunately, it will be sometime before we are able to offer our children and youth ministries on site. No one knows when this pandemic will end. It may be that a sudden spike in cases will cause the government to advise or require us to close or make other changes. As a result, our reopening committee will continue to review and update the various protocols.

It will be so good to be back in the House of the Lord claiming the promise that where even two or three are gathered together in the name of Christ he is there in the midst. We know that wherever we are, alone or together, Christ is with us and he will continue to see us through this pandemic.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

Blessings in Christ,

Peter Holmes.
