Opening the Sanctuary on Sunday
Trillium is now opening the sanctuary on Sunday morning for worshipers. The 10:30 worship service will continue to be available on-line. For those who wish to stay home you can access either service by internet or by phone. A youth program is also available on-line.
The Re-Opening Team is committed to making the worship experience in the sanctuary as safe as possible and asks for your cooperation if you attend. Here is what you need to know:
  • The on-line worship service will be shown on the projection screen. Mark will be at the church but other worship leaders will continue be on-line (not in the church).
  • Volunteer greeters and ushers will be present to assist you to follow safety protocols. Attendance will be taken.
  • A mask must be worn at all times and must cover the nose and mouth. Those who arrive without a mask will be provided with one.
  • If you cannot wear a mask for medical reasons you will be seated in a designated distanced seating area.
  • You will be asked to maintain 2 metres (6 foot) distance from those not in your family group. Ushers will seat you at a safe distance from others. 
  • Once you are seated, please remain there until the end of the service. Greet people from a safe distance (2 metres). 
  • High touch surfaces (door handles, washrooms, pews) will be sanitized before the service.
  • Singing is a high-risk activity and is not recommended. Please hum or clap along to songs.
  • There is no nursery care for infants and toddlers.
  •  Coffee and fellowship will not be offered in the church. You may visit with others outside the building before or after the service.     
  • Please stay home if you feel unwell or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Check out the latest Re-Cap
Recently, as a response to the 2nd wave of Covid, there was another mini hoarding of toilet paper. Odd, but people seem to feel more secure when they have a big stash of toilet paper. Lots people rest their security on a big stash of money in the bank. Not uncommon to see people finding refugee from the world in their homes or in a special relationship. Join Mark as he considers how frail our security really is in this world and how Jesus teaches us that true safety and security rests on something very different.
