As we begin to reopen churches into what is our new normal as a church and society, please see the guidelines from the General Council and Regional Council staff. These guidelines are a tool to help you as a Community of Faith to develop a plan for reopening. Following government and health authorities regulations as well as using the church’s guidelines, we hope that you are able to put together a plan that works in your context; keeping in mind your demographic and the types of ministry you provide. It is a good practice to have your plan written and shared with all members of your Community of Faith. It is also important if questioned by the government or health authorities, you are able to show your plan and how you have been following the plan in an attempt to mitigate risks.
