COVID-19 Update
october 2021

In Person Services at SMSL have now fully resumed.  There are 2 Services each Sunday, except on special Sunday or Feastday when a Combined language Service is conducted:

 

9:30 am             English Eucharist Service

11:30 am           Cantonese Eucharist Service

 

If a Combined language Service is conducted, it will be held at 10:30 am.

 

Although all COVID restrictions for religious gatherings are lifted under the BC Health Order, we STRONGLY RECOMMEND Sunday Service attendees to observe the following protocols to keep our worship environment safe. 

  1. There is no need to sign up to attend Sunday Service.  Attendance number is also not restricted.  However, we will take your attendance when you enter church so that there will be record in the event of a COVID exposure.

  2. All physical church Services will be livestreamed through our Parish SMSL YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpywLlgBemOQ8L9WV2zXZ1Q 

  3. We do not provide any children's ministry (or playroom) during Service for the time being.

  4. Although worshippers do not need to show Vaccine Card to attend worship Service, for the protection of oneself and the safety of others, we would expect adult attendees to have been vaccinated against COVID-19. 

  5. Please do not attend in-person Service if you are feeling sick, or have been in contact with a sick person.

  6. All attendees are strongly recommended to wear face masks or coverings throughout the Service.  Please bring your own mask.  There will be some available for those who do not have face masks.

  7. Please maintain a physical distance where possible.   

  8. Attendees are requested to clean their hands upon entering church.

 

During Service:

 

  1. Singing is also resumed during Service but worshippers are requested to sing with their masks on.

  2. There will not be a passing of the offering plate.  Offerings can be dropped in the donation box in the narthex as attendees enter or exit the church.

  3. There will be no shared Bibles or books during Service.  The Liturgy will be shown on screen.

  4. Please follow Server’s direction when proceeding to receive Holy Communion, maintaining a distance from other Communicants where possible.


We pray that these measures will help worshippers feel safe attending physical church Services.  We look forward to worshipping with you in person at SMSL.
