UPDATES – March 11, 2022
Exciting news! Effective March 11th, 2022, the provincial government put into place the following new Provincial Health Orders:
- Religious worship services can continue as normal with no capacity limits.
- Masks wearing will not be required.
In light of these changes, we will fill our venues to full capacity and mask wearing will not be required.
As we transition into this next phase, we encourage kindness and to please respect the space and decisions of each individual. We ask that you would be patient with each other, love one another and exercise the grace and care for one another as Jesus has called us to do.
We understand that some may still be hesitant or concerned as we gather together for worship services. Therefore, for a season, we will offer a simultaneous ‘live feed’ of the services in the Chapel, where masks will be required and seating will be socially distanced.
Please take time to review the updated Willingdon Church guidelines listed below for more details on in-person worship gatherings and services, as determined and affirmed by our elders and leadership team.
We are so grateful for your patience, understanding, support and prayers during this time and throughout the pandemic. For those who have not returned, we are looking forward to welcoming you back to church!
We will also continue to offer online services and virtual opportunities to connect and care for our church family and community around the world.
We praise God for His grace, protection and provision during this time and we trust Him to continue to guide and protect us as we serve and continue our mission “to know Jesus Christ personally and carry on His ministry”.
We are truly looking forward to seeing you in person! Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
To God we give the glory!
