As we resume some in-person community life groups at LPC, we wanted to provide a bit of information about how we can continue to keep each other safe, and what to expect when attending an in-person Bible study. These guidelines have been formed based on the government guidance that can be found on this webpage .
This is optional. We have masks available if you would like to wear one but forget to bring one with you.
This page has some really helpful information regarding mask wearing, for those wanting to know more.
No, but it will help your group leader if they know in advance you are coming. If you are coming for the first time and aren't sure how to contact your group leader, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to connect you.
Not currently! We will be following the provincial health restrictions, so if vaccination passport mandates are reintroduced, this may change. When mandates are in effect, we try wherever possible to provide ways for those who are unvaccinated to still join with their group - whether this is joining online, or having a meeting in an outdoor space.
Again, we encourage this. Social distancing is an effective way of stopping the spread of Covid-19. But if you feel led to lay a hand on someone’s shoulder to pray for or comfort them, we bless you to do so (just check they're ok with this first).
No, unless your group leader says otherwise. However you are welcome to bring your own beverage.
Abide by the protocols they are asking you to follow. If they are a little stricter than we have outlined here, there may be someone in the group who has requested this for their safety. Adhering to the protocols requested of us is a great way to show love to one another at this time. If you would like to discuss the protocols for your group further, please contact the office and we'd be happy to help.
Also, there may be some extra responsibilities required of your group leader at this time, such as chair setup or cleaning procedures. If you might be able to support them with this, please do check in with them and offer to help.
