As many of you are aware, the Alberta Government is beginning to reopen various sectors of society and the economy in phases with detailed guidance for restrictions and safety measures. This includes churches.
After studying the government’s restrictions for places of worship, Avenue Church’s servant leadership team has decided that we will continue to meet and worship online for Sunday services.
To read the government guidelines, please click on the link below. As you can see in the document, many of the restrictions (including restricted gathering size, no children’s ministries and no singing) would make it difficult for us to gather in a safe and meaningful way at this time. Instead, we are encouraging you to continue to connect virtually with us on Sunday mornings and through house churches during the week (many of which are moving towards outdoor socially distanced gatherings of small groups.) We will keep you updated with any further developments.
If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your staff or executive team.
