With covid-related restrictions easing, you may be wondering what Peninsula UC’s plans are for re-opening in-person worship at the Crescent site. Right now, it seems that we’ll continue to do our pre-recorded worship services and have live Zoom coffee hours for the rest of the summer.

Here’s why:

  • The Needs Assessment Group (Glenn Roy, Victoria Jones, Carol Monaghan, Leisa Bannerman and John Leighton) has produced an extensive report on our options for hybrid in-person/online worship moving forward, in order to serve our members and guests the best way we can.
  • The Strategic Leadership Council (SLC) will review the report and make a decision on it at their meeting in late July. Should the SLC decide to go with the options explored, it will take several weeks to acquire equipment, train volunteers, etc. During that period, as far as we know at this point, we’ll maintain the current status quo.

If you have comments or concerns about re-opening under the current recommendations from the province, please forward them to any of the SLC members:  Jean Macdonald, Anna Paton, Colleen Dean, Beth Henderson, Maria Booth, Pat Heslop, Sharon Birney or Val Austring.

In the meantime, we hope you’ll continue to watch our pre-recorded services online and call in to the Sunday morning Zoom coffee hours. You may also want to take in Café Church Al Fresco, which will be presented in-person every two weeks over the summer in a park setting. Check your newsletters for further details and to pre-register.

Stay tuned – as you know, things change unexpectedly! Rest assured that we’ll let you know how they affect our community of faith and our worship.
