Although we cannot yet gather inside the church building for worship, we are permitted to gather outside and so we will take advantage of the (hopefully) nice weather to do so.
Our live-streamed worship service will continue to be our primary focus as most people will still be worshipping from home for some time yet. However, we realize that not everyone has access to the on-line service, and others are missing the experience of worshipping in community. To provide another worship option, we are now broadcasting the online service on a large screen TV in the covered area outside the front doors of the church. This area will provide shade and protection from wind and rain for about 20 worshippers. We will be giving priority seating under cover to those who cannot access the online service at home. All others are welcome to attend and sit nearby in the parking lot. Please bring your own chair if possible. The health directives require that masks be worn even though we are outdoors. You must also remain at least two meters away from anyone who is not in your household "bubble."
We will be offering Holy Communion outdoors on the first and third Sundays of the month immediately following the online broadcast. We are limited to a maximum of 50 people outdoors, and we must keep a record for contact tracing purposes, so please register to attend by contacting the church office by email or phone, and also indicate how many from your household will be taking communion if it is a Communion Sunday. You are also welcome to come to the church for just the outdoor communion, but please register so we know how many people to prepare for.
We are unable to offer services in Hope during the COVID pandemic. Please join us for online worship from St. Paul's, Chilliwack. Services begin at 10:00 am and remain on the website for four weeks Watch the service now. For more information contact our local representative Linda Vandermeulen at 604-869-2073
