Church Reopening Scheme
Updated July 16, 2021
In accordance with government recommendations and regulations, we have been preparing plans for reopening and guidelines for using the church facilities. Currently, the Ontario government is in Step 3 of the roadmap to reopen. As per regulations, we may only open the meeting room for indoor gatherings of no more than 25 people and outdoor gatherings of no more than 100 people. Meetings must be requested in advance through the church website (www.markhamchurch.com), and the applicants must adhere to the appropriate safety and epidemic prevention measures. For more information, please contact the deacons or pastoral staff.
Regarding the physical worship services, if Ontario is in Step 3 of the roadmap to reopen and the number of COVID daily cases is below 100 for 21 consecutive days, then we will consider reopening the physical worship services in accordance with government regulations. In response to the epidemic, the government has implemented many regulations regarding gatherings, and we need many volunteers in order to ensure the safety of all attendees, as well as the cleanliness of the church facilities. There will be a volunteer application available online soon. We will review the reopening scheme frequently and encourage all to work together for the reopening of the church. Please continue to pray for the reopening of the church.
All worship services are available online. Members of both the Cantonese and Mandarin congregations may attend the worship services via the church website (www.markhamchurch.com),
while members of the English congregation may attend the services via Zoom .
Please contact the pastors for more information. The following is the schedule of worship services:
- Cantonese Worship Service at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday
- Mandarin Worship Service at 11:15 a.m. on Sunday
- English Worship Service at 11:15 a.m. on Sunday
教會一直致力以配合政府建議和規則去制定重開計劃及地方使用守則。目前，我們正處於安省重新開放計劃的第三階段。按照規定我們只能開放最多 25 人的室內聚會和最多100 人的室外聚會。這些聚會都要事先在教會網站申請（www.markhamchurch.com），並且申請人必須遵守相關的防疫安全程序，詳情請向執事及教牧同工查詢。
至於實體崇拜聚會，若果安省進入重新開放計劃的第三階段，並且每天新冠肺炎病例數字連續 21 天低於 100 宗，我們將考慮按照政府規定的崇拜聚會。因著疫情政府增加了許多聚會規定，我們需要大家肩負執行這些防疫規定，以確保教會的清潔和所有赴會者的安全。教會即將在網上推出事奉人員報名。我們會不時檢討重開計劃，並且鼓勵大家同心協力重開教會。請繼續為教會重開禱告。
