Outdoor Worship FAQs
How many outdoor services will there be each Sunday?
Presently, we will be holding three outdoor services on Sundays at 11:15 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. We also host a labyrinth walk at 6:00 p.m.
Where will the services take place?
We will hold services in the courtyard spaces at All Saints’. People will be seated in pods (people with whom they have shared a home for the past 14 days) each of which will be numbered. You will be checked-in by our staff and told your pod number on arrival.
Do I need to wear a mask?
Yes please. Mask wearing is required at all times for everyone over the age of two years old. If you forget to bring a mask, we will have a spare for you to use.
What about seating?
We are asking people to bring their own chairs to sit on for the service. For those who do not or who cannot bring one, we will have plastic church chairs available for you to use.
How can I follow the service?
We send an email on Sunday mornings which will include a link to the service bulletin. You will need to bring a phone or other device to follow the service. We will not be providing printed bulletins as per diocesan protocols.
Is there anything else I need to bring?
Yes. Please bring your All Saints’ name tag to help us check you in on arrival.
Do I need to maintain physical distance even though we are outside?
Yes, so that we can keep everyone safe, it is very important that you maintain at least six feet of distance between you and people outside of your pod at all times.
Are children welcome?
Yes! Children are very welcome and will stay with their families for the duration of the service.
Where can I park?
You can park in the upper level of the parking deck and the surface parking lot next to Egleston Hall.
May I attend more than one service per Sunday?
We ask you to attend only one service per Sunday so as to make room for others who wish to attend.
What happens if the service registration is full?
If any given service reaches 50 people in total, people who register after that will be placed on a waiting list.
If I cannot attend after all, what should I do?
If your plans change please inform us and we will open up your spaces for others who may be on a waiting list.
Will the service be cancelled in the case of bad weather?
Yes, if the weather is bad, you will receive notice that outdoor Sunday services have been cancelled.
What kind of service will this be?
It will be a service of the Word - so no Holy Communion - almost exactly the same as our 10:00 a.m. livestream service.
Is the livestream service continuing?
Yes, we will continue to offer livestream services on Facebook and Vimeo at 10:00 a.m. every Sunday.
Will the restrooms be open?
No, as per our COVID-19 protocols, restrooms will not be available other than on an emergency basis.
May I enter the buildings?
We know much we all miss seeing inside our church building and in other spaces, however, it will not be possible to enter the buildings at this time.
Is food and drink allowed?
We will not be serving any food or drinks and we would prefer you not to bring any food and drinks to the campus for the service.
May I linger after the service?
We know you want to visit with each other. Unfortunately, we will need to invite you to leave following the service to allow us time to prepare for the next service.
Can newcomers attend?
Yes! Newcomers are always welcome at All Saints’.
May I bring a guest?
Yes you are most welcome to. Please be sure to register them or invite them to register themselves.
