Home Worship – Sunday October 3, 2021

This Sunday October 3 we continue to worship in-person and online. We can safely accommodate up to 40 people in the church sanctuary at our usual time of 10:30am. Today will be a Communion Service.

This week there are a few changes to In-Person Worship:

    • Vaccination will be required to attend in-person worship for all persons 12 years of age and over. We will be asking for proof of a 2nd dose of a COVID vaccine the first time you come to worship on or after this date, and then keep a record of who is fully vaccinated.
    • Live Vocal Music Will Be Reintroduced
    • Communion Will be Reintroduced and continue on a monthly basis.
    • For full details please refer to the email of September 24 or go here: https://standrews.ws/2021/09/26/updates-to-in-person-worship/

Today also marks the return of Bob Marshall to the in-person service.
