What You Need to Know About Our Hybrid Services

The Zoom link for those attending online will be sent out in the weekly parish email and be available on the website as usual. For those wishing to attend the in-person liturgy, registration in advance is necessary. Please go to https://www.picktime.com/StPetersErindale. If you, or someone you know, wishes to register but does not have access to the internet, please call the church office Monday to Thursday at 905-828-2095 for assistance. Please note that the times and dates of these services may change.

You are not required to show proof of vaccination to enter the building, however, we strongly encourage everyone who is medically able to be vaccinated to do so, especially those engaging in any form of ministry. This protects everyone, especially the children who cannot be vaccinated yet. The following measures are in place to comply with Provincial regulations, Diocesan rules, and for the safety of everyone who enters the building, and must be followed:

  1. Contact tracing and covid-screening questionnaires
  2. Masks that cover the nose, mouth, and chin must be worn at all times inside the building, except for the few moments when you place the host in your mouth at communion.
  3. Physical distancing is required, and people will be seated in households and distanced 2m apart
  4. Sanitize your hands when entering the building, and before and after receiving communion. There is hand-sanitizer available at the church. You are encouraged to bring your own.
  5. There will be no congregational singing during the service.
  6. Communion will be bread only. No “common cup” of wine.
  7. Eating and drinking, other than for communion or for emergency purposes, is not allowed. There will not be an in-person coffee hour following the service, nor will the clergy be greeting people in the narthex before or after the service. Breakout rooms for those participating on Zoom will continue following the service.

Please join us in person or online as best suits you. This is a new way of worshipping at St. Peter’s, so we will be making adjustments as we learn and as conditions in the pandemic change. If you have any comments or questions, please direct them to the Rev. Canon Jim Woolley or the Rev. Maria Nightingale.
