We have finally received some clarity regarding the new Stay at Home order issued Tuesday and effective at Midnight tonight. Gatherings have been limited to 5 people except for religious services which remains at 10 with the requirement of masks and social distancing. The declared state of emergency allows for more changes and the document promises that some may come very quickly….but for now we will continue with our Circle of 10 meetings.
We believe church is essential and continue to work toward that recognition by our government leaders. There are some spots left open for tomorrows Circle of 10 meetings at 9 am, 6:30 pm or 8 pm.
We have received many emails, texts and calls regarding the Premiers most recent update about the State of Emergency declaration in Ontario. Please be careful of the information you get from the Media! The press conference declared a state of emergency with a greater level of enforcement but details regarding places of worship were not given. This is often the case, and rules for gathering are not always the same for churches. We have been careful to wait for the bulletins released by the Premier’s office on the Government of Ontario website. As of 5:30 pm, January 12 it still has not been updated. We will send out an update through this blog as soon as we have received it and read it. Thank you for your patience!
