*Please note:

– For Faith-Based, Spiritual and Worship Practices there is currently no capacity limits on indoor or outdoor religious gatherings and worship services.

– For all non-faith user groups, Step 3 of the COVID – 19 Restart Plan requires indoor organized gatherings cannot exceed 50 people or 50% room capacity, which ever is greater. (This capacity issue specifically relates to the sanctuary and main hall). All room bookings – please discuss with our church administrator.
