LAST UPDATED DEC 22, 2021
Nanaimo Alliance Church continues to meet in-person. Our in-person protocols are as follows in accordance with Provincial Health Orders:
MASKS: Required to enter the building and must remain on at all times for everyone 5 and older. This will be enforced by our staff and volunteers at the door to protect our church family and remain compliant with Public Health Orders. We greatly appreciate your cooperation to avoid an uncomfortable situation. Masks will be provided if you need one.
The only exception for masks are when eating or drinking which includes communion and after-service coffee. PLEASE REMEMBER that masks must fully cover your nose and mouth. The Pastor or those speaking as part of the service may remove masks while speaking/reading/praying.
PROOF OF VACCINATION: not required for Sunday Services, but this means operating at 50% capacity (118).
SERVICE REGISTRATION: At this time we will not require pre-service registration, however this introduces the possibility of a service being full upon your arrival. If this is of concern, we invite you to join us online via our website, lovingly produced for you by our own “NAC Studios”!
All other indoor gatherings/events are currently prohibited in the building, until at least January 18, 2022. Once this restriction is lifted, Proof of Vaccination will be required for all groups/events until at least January 31, 2022.
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.
Singing is permitted with your mask remaining on. Worship leaders can be unmasked and remain 3m from the audience. Band members not singing or playing a wind instrument will be masked.
Offering is not taken during the service. There is a metal lockbox on the wall at the back of 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 email@example.com as the recipient address through your online banking.
Communion is being served every week. You will be served at your seat rather than passing plates. Masks may be removed to partake of communion.
Kid's Church is running! Sign in your child at the kiosk in the foyer upon arrival. Children will be dismissed from the auditorium after singing.
Nursery: Newborn-2 yrs
Pre-K: 2.5-4 yrs
Early Elementary: K-Gr 3
Preteen: Gr 4-7
After-service coffee is being served by our Hospitality team*, masks may be removed to partake. 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 physcally distanced visit.
*if you are interested in serving in the kitchen, please let the office know!
A FEW MORE THINGS...
Please continue to respect physical distancing. Kindly refrain from handshaking and other physical contact.
We prefer that socializing occurs outdoors, however you may also visit in the auditorium, being mindful of physical distancing and remaining sensitive to others. 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, patience and diligence in keeping NAC as safe as possible for everyone.
You are also welcome to join us online for recorded messages.
