COVID-19 PROTOCOL
 
Updated January, 2022 to reflect BC Provincial Health Guidelines (Stage 3) and subsequent Health Orders
 
Community of Hope Church resumed indoor worship as of Sunday, September 12th at 10am. We have been very excited to come back together inside. 
 
Indoor Worship

Our worship service is currently EXEMPT from the vaccine passport because we occupy less than 50% of the allowed capacity of our space. Masks are required for age 5 and up, in both our worship service and Kids’ Church.  You can find the official letter regarding worship services here. 

Since the start of the pandemic our goal at CoH has been to take a balanced approach by meeting provincial requirements, but allowing people to make their own choices about going beyond the requirements. We think this is the best way to promote unity and honor both those who prefer more caution and those who prefer less restrictions. 

In the interest of unity and the continued advance of the gospel among us, we will continue moving forward with the following guidelines in place. 

  • Masks are currently required (age 5+) during our worship time and Kids’ Church
  • We will spread out chairs, have sanitizer present and encouraged, and perform routine sanitization as we did before
  • Kids’ Church leaders will mask when inside with the kids. Weather depending, some of the program may be held outside in the playground area. We will not require masks outside.) 
  • Please respect others’ comfort level in terms of personal distance, hand-shaking, etc.
  • Please do not attend if you have any COVID-19 symptoms or have been in contact with someone who is positive for COVID-19.
 
Online Options
  • Tune in to our Sunday morning livestream from our YouTube channel or Facebook page.
  • You can also catch past Sunday messages on the YouTube channel.
  • Kids’ program: weekly video and take-home sheet are available on gethope.ca/kids

If you have questions or concerns about these guidelines please contact me. 

Please continue to pray for our church, and all believers, as we navigate the pandemic and the realities of life today. The world needs the Gospel more than ever.
