LAST UPDATED SEP 11, 2021
Nanaimo Alliance Church is once again meeting in person! Although we are still maintaining a few cautionary measures, we are excited to be worshiping together again. As of September 12, our in-person protocols are as follows:
REGISTRATION: not required
PROOF OF VACCINATION: not required
Masks are not mandatory, however they are recommended by BC Health (and strongly encouraged by NAC) with or without full vaccination. NOTE: Masks are mandatory inside the building for any non-ministry meetings/social gatherings.
PERSONAL HEALTH CHECK
Please continue to perform a health check prior to attending, and do not attend in person if you are sick or have any symptoms.
The auditorium chairs are once again attached in rows, however, the rows will remain further apart than “normal” in order to use all available space and maintain a degree of distancing. Although attendance is not limited, the chair setup will somewhat reduce our overall capacity. Please do not sit directly beside others in your row – leave at least two empty seats between you.
Singing is permitted, with or without a mask. (masks preferred by NAC)
Offering is not taken during the service. There is a metal box just inside the auditorium doors to deposit tithes and offerings at any time. If you are new and would like an offering envelope number for tax purposes, let the office know. E-transfer is also available using firstname.lastname@example.org as the recipient address through your online banking.
Communion is now being served every week. You will be served at your seat rather than passing plates.
As of September 12, our full Kid’s Church has returned! Sign in your child at the kiosk in the foyer upon arrival. Children will be dismissed after singing.
Nursery: Newborn-2 yrs
Pre-K: 2.5-4 yrs
Early Elementary: K-Gr 3
Preteen: Gr 4-7
Coffee service resumes as of September 12. As part of our current safety plan, coffee will be served to you by our host team, and we ask that you please DO NOT congregate in the confines of the foyer. Feel free to take your beverage outside to visit, or you may spread out in the auditorium to enjoy a bit of social time.
*if you are interested in serving in the kitchen, please let the office know!
A FEW MORE THINGS...
Physical distancing is still appreciated in light of the various comfort levels of our church family. Please kindly refrain from handshaking and other physical contact, and maintain distancing when socializing.
We prefer that socializing occurs outdoors, however you may now visit in the auditorium, being mindful of physical distancing for the comfort of everyone. Please avoid visiting in the foyer as the area is very small and quickly becomes congested.
As always, we trust there will be a continued atmosphere of love, respect and support for each other, as there are many different levels of comfort within our church family. As our world carefully shifts to a pre-pandemic way of life, we thank you for your understanding and patience as NAC slowly resumes normal activities while continuing to monitor the pandemic.
