Trinity Reopening Update
A Reopening Committee was formed some months ago to study the feasibility of getting back into the church for regular services. We have been challenged by many changing factors such as: government regulations; the challenges of constant cleaning of all surfaces in the church; the people who would do this cleaning; distance seating as per current regulations, screening procedures, etc. At this time, especially because of the new provincial restrictions, it is impossible to project when we might all get together again. As a Chaplin in the Scarborough Health network, our Minister, Rev. Andrew, has seen first-hand the devastating effects of Covid 19. We must keep the health and safety of our church family as our main priority. We are most fortunate that Rev. Andrew has the technical background to provide our Sunday services on You Tube, our website and Facebook. We know that many closed churches are unable to record services and we are thankful. The Reopening Committee will continue with discussions as we develop a plan and are ready to reopen when it is safe to do so and “that date is in God’s hands”.
