COVID-19 Response

 

UPDATE: December 3, 2021 

Under government guidelines, Gloucester’s in-person capacity for worship has increased.

We are currently welcoming people to in-person worship with no more need to reserve online. Seats are available to the first 70 adults & children who arrive each Sunday.

As soon as you arrive, please be prepared to register yourself and any dependant children with you. You will also be asked to sign-up children for nursery or Sunday School at that time. There are limits to how many children can be accommodated each week and the total number of people allowed in the building will be capped at 70.


Christmas Eve 

We welcome people to either the 4:30pm OR 7:30pm worship on Friday, Dec. 24.
70 pre-registered people can attend each service. Please choose which you would like to attend.
