Our Fall Re-opening Update

Our Re-opening Team has been actively meeting and discussing the COVID-19 developments with health professionals.

Over the course of the last month, we have successfully hosted in-person Sunday worship services in all three languages. We would like to acknowledge and thank all of those who have worked to make in-person and online worship services possible. We also thank all of you for your patience and support as we navigate technical challenges.

There is concern regarding the spread of the COVID-19 delta variant, which is why we continue to take a cautious approach and operate with the goal of protecting the health of you and our community.

In light of the variant situation, here are some updates to our church ministries as we approach the fall:

  • The church will continue to monitor and assess the situation and make necessary adjustments after the province updates its direction in late September
  • Sunday worship services for Cantonese, Mandarin, English will still be available both in-person and online
  • Families are welcome to attend worship services together
  • Parking lot and classroom bookings are available subject to certain limitations
  • Other in-person ministries in the church building will continue to be postponed

We understand that some of you may feel disappointment in the continuation of restrictions. However, we must place our faith in the Lord and trust Him to see us through to safe pastures.

If any of you need help or need to talk to someone during this time, please contact your church leaders or email us at hello@ecac.ca.

Church Wide Ministry

Thank you for MMC congregations to come clean-up our parking lot yesterday.

Our church is adopting a cautious and gradual approach in re-opening our facilities in order to protect everyone in our community. Therefore, basic hygiene practices like face masking, hand washing and physical distancing are highly recommended when entering church facilities.  To enable us to continue to worship God and meet as a community for fellowship, the church’s re-opening plan is outlined below:

  • In-person Sunday Services: The Cantonese and Mandarin services have resumed in-person gatherings with a 50-person limit. The English service is planning to have in-person gathering starting on August 8. The attendance limit will be raised to 75 in August, if favourable health conditions continue.
  • Small Groups and Fellowships: Parking lot use and 2 classrooms (with limited capacity) can be booked through the church office.
  • Dynamic Centre: At present, the Dynamic Centre is set up for the Cantonese in-person worship. Due to logistics and cleaning requirements, re-opening the Dynamic Centre will be revisited in September.

Furthermore, an integral strategy of our enhanced safety plan is to host an awareness campaign. We will arrange seminars for everyone to understand our protocols. You will be notified when the schedule becomes available. Please check the church’s web site (emc.ecac.ca/covid19) for more details and updates… Click here to read more
