Returning to In-Person Worship
Important Conditions


Hello Everyone,

We have been working hard since mid-June to prepare everything we need so that we can worship safely in person during August for those who feel comfortable coming out. We are following all the guidelines of the Toronto Public Health Department, the Anglican Diocese of Toronto, and the Presbyterian Church in Canada. I just want to give you a brief overview of what to expect here.

Everyone entering the building will be screened (temperature taken, usual questions, etc.) before coming in. So I suggest you come 15 minutes early to allow this extra time.

Seniors and those with other health problems are at higher risk, but we are doing our best to ensure everyone’s safety.

People will need to social distance (6 ft apart) while waiting to enter. This week, please use the ramp door as the only screening assessor will be at that door. Hand sanitizer will be on the table and masks will be available if you don’t have your own. Everyone will need to wear a mask.

Once you are through the screening process, you can proceed to the worship area where chairs will be spaced 6 feet apart. If you come with other members of your household, you can move chairs together, but then the rest of the chairs in that row will be readjusted to maintain the 6 feet distance.

Our seating capacity is limited to 30% of the floor space. So if you wish to attend in person, please RSVP to Bob Williams at postmaster@tri-church.ca or 416-494-2442 so that we know how many to expect.

There will be a table at the door to the worship area with an offering plate where people can leave their offerings if they wish.

If you use the washroom, you will need to disinfect it before leaving the room. Instructions will be posted there.

At the end of the service, we ask that you please use the hand sanitizer and social distance as you leave (similar to entering).

Volunteers will complete a thorough cleaning and disinfecting protocol in the worship area and all common use areas before we leave the building.

The Order of the Worship Services will still be available online for those who prefer to stay home.

This is worship in the COVID-19 era. However we do it, we are grateful for the opportunity to worship God and celebrate with our church family.

Wash your hands often
(after coughing, sneezing, blowing your nose,

(back and front, special attention to nail areas);
use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available;
avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
avoid close contact with people who are sick;
cough or sneeze into your sleeve instead of into your hands;
and
stay home to avoid spreading the illness to others.
