MtE Update – December 24 2021

  1. Christmas Day services
  2. Attendance at gathered services is presently limited to those who demonstrate that they have had two COVID-19 vaccination shots, or that they are exempt from being vaccinated. It will be necessary to provide proof of your vaccination, either prior to the service or on the day at the door, but this only needs to be shown once for recording; please see here for more information. If you presently are unable to attend under these conditions the live-stream is still available from the home page, or please contact Craig or your elder.
  3. Mindful of the health-vulnerability of some members of our congregation, the church council has decided that we will continue to wear masks in worship throughout December and January, except for those who need to remove them when leading the worship, and for morning tea, or who have an exemption from wearing a mask. We have now returned to reception of Holy Communion in both kinds – small communion glasses only.
  4. The most recent news from the UCA Assembly (Dec 22)
  5. This Sunday December 26 will be Christmas 1; we’ll take, however, a Christmas Day reading (John 1.1-14) and compelementary texts in Psalm 130 and Genesis 3 to reflection on the incarnation.

Advance Notice

  1. February 13: Futures workshop following worship
