•  Important Announcement: Dear Walton family and friends,
With summer just around the corner, we wanted to let you know of some changes to our weekly worship services and Covid protocols at the church. It’s such a blessing to get back closer to our pre-Covid “normal” operations, while still maintaining those essential precautions which allow everyone to attend services comfortably and safely.

Summer service schedule
Beginning today, Sunday, June 5, we switch to our summer worship schedule with one weekly service at 10:00 am on Sundays. Virtual services will continue to be sent out at 2:00 pm.

Registration changes
Effective today, Sunday, June 5, registration for services and Sunday School is no longer required! Ushers will seat you on arrival, maintaining social distancing between groups. If you have a special need or seating preference, please let your usher know.

Masks are still required
Masks are required everywhere inside the church building. This includes the Sanctuary, Sunday School and Youth Group rooms, entrances, hallways, washrooms, and the kitchen.

Coffee hour / social hour
Coffee hour will take place following the 10am service. It will be held outdoors whenever weather permits, and in the air-conditioned comfort of Bronte Hall during unfavourable weather. When coffee hour is held indoors, masks may be removed briefly for drinking and eating, however, they are strongly recommended at all other times. All servers will be masked indoors.

Children and youth programming
Sunday School programming for grades K-5 will be offered during the 10am service. Junior and senior youth are welcome to assist. Starting today, Sunday, June 5, children and youth will now enter the Sanctuary with their families for the first part of the service. They will proceed to Sunday School following the youth story.

Entering and exiting the building
The Allen entrance (at the back), main tower stairs and Bronte Hall doors may now be used for entering and exiting the church for Sunday services. The choir loft exit will be used in emergencies only.
