In-Person Services Paused, Christmas Update

With the increase in the spread of COVID-19 in Hamilton, the diocese has paused all in-person services in the City of Hamilton until further notice. This decision has been made before any potential changes to our community rules from the province. I wanted to share and highlight an excerpt from the diocesan note explaining the new ministry guidelines:

While we have continued confidence in our pandemic protocols, this decision is being made as a sacrificial witness to the wider community that now is a time to stay at home for the love of our neighbours and in order to protect the most vulnerable in our communities.

Christmas services were already going to look very different from previous years–not being able to sing familiar carols together, with limited and spread-out attendance; now, things shift entirely online.

Here’s what things will look like over the next while:

No in-person visiting will be scheduled at this time. For pastoral contact, please call the church and Matthew will return your call. The church’s phone number is (905) 549-4335.
