Dear New Covenant Assembly (NCA) Family,
Based on Govt. of Alberta’s Phase I re-launch strategy allowing places of worship to reopen from June 1, 2020, we are pleased to inform you that NCA will resume in-persons worship services from Sunday, June 7, 2020. NCA will adopt the following re-launch strategies consistent with AHS re-launch guidelines for places of worship.
• General Conditions:
o 50 people or less are allowed in the church building per worship service.
o Congregational singing is not presently allowed in worship services.
o Children & Youth services will continue online. 60+ year olds will stay home & watch online.
o Please check: www.newcovenantassembly.ca for information on multiple in-persons services being offered, online bookings, survey & more details on the four key strategies stated below.
• Distancing Measures:
o Physical distancing of 2 meters during services will be adhered to.
o Appropriate sign & labels supporting physical distancing will be installed.
o Online registration forms for service attendance since space is limited to only 50 per service.
• Cleaning Measures:
o Hand sanitizing stations will be available at entry, exits and other stations in the church.
o Frequent disinfecting/sanitizing of high touch areas (e.g. pulpit, bathrooms, chairs, POS machines, door knobs etc.). Facility will also be cleaned in between services.
o Frequent hand washing by all with soap and water is highly encouraged.
• Screening for Symptoms:
o Completion of online self-assessment to screen for symptoms required prior coming to church.
o Anyone not feeling well is requested to attend online services and not come to church.
o There will be temperature checks at the point of entry into the church. Anyone with temperature above normal will not be allowed into the church.
• Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):
o Congregants are encouraged to bring their own masks to church even though physical distancing measures are being implemented.
o Disposable masks & gloves to be provided by the church as needed.
o Members are encouraged to download Alberta’s COVID-19 tracing app.
We will continue to monitor & implement any new recommendations set by the province, and keep you updated.
Finally, we are excited to begin to gather again physically. “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together”
– Heb. 10:25a. We are thankful to God for responding to our prayers and we deem this Phase I re-launch as a sign of better things to come! We miss you a lot and look forward to seeing you in-person soon! Blessings!!!
