We are very excited to welcome you back as a new season of ministry kicks off at BBC! Beginning Sunday, September 19, 2021 we will begin offering two worship services again at 9:15 am and 11:00 am. In addition to our worship services, many of our ministries are beginning programming for the fall season, so please be sure to check out out what is being offered on the ministry pages.
Before you attend a worship service, or any of our programming, we ask that you would do a quick self-screening.
Worshippers are advised to stay at home and join us online if;
· They have travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days
· They have Covid-19 or symptoms of Covid-19
· They have had close contact with a probable or confirmed case of Covid-19
Entry/Flow of People: When you arrive, please enter through the Atrium doors only and please observe appropriate physical distancing. Doors will be open 1/2 hour before each service. We ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the service so that we can allow entry in an orderly fashion. After the service, please exit through the main doors.
Sanitizing/Cleaning: Our cleaners will clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces and common areas including door handles, counters, light switches, faucets, toilet handles, etc. prior to our services. We will have teams of people to clean/santize the washrooms and entrace areas between services on Sundays.
Hand sanitizer stations will be located throughout the entryways and lobby area. Please use hand sanitizer as you enter and exit the building.
Physical contact: We encourage you to greet each other with a friendly wave or smile! Please maintain appropriate physical distancing (2m or more) at all times, except of course with members of your own household. We have eliminated the intentional passing of objects such as the offering bags, Communion plates, bulletins, etc. from the service.
Seating: In order to maintain a minimum of 2 metres between members of different households, every other pew will be blocked off. A minimum of 2 metres must be maintained between each household in the pews. We will continue to reserve seating for those with physical challenges and/or mobility issues. Ushers will assist you with finding seating if necessary.
At the end of the service, please do not linger in the auditorium. When exiting, please move directly through the lobby and outside the building via the main doors. Please move clear of the exterior doors. Please be patient to allow people to maintain the proper physical distancing as they exit.
Offering: Thank you for your continued support for the ministry of BBC! We encourage you to continue to use online resources for your giving. If you choose to bring your offering to the church with you, a receptacle will be available when you enter for you to place your offering envelope.
Masks: In accordance with the City of Brampton by-law, all people are required to wear a non-medical mask while attending a worship service. Your mask must remain in place at all times while you are in the building. The only exception to this are children under 2 years of age, or those with respiratory or other medical issues for whom it would be problematic to wear a mask.
Please know that there is no pressure for anyone to return to “in-person” worship. This is a personal choice and we respect your decision if you prefer at this time to watch the livestream from home. The service is also posted on the website if you are unable to attend in-person or watch the livestream.
Whether you join us at the church, or continue to worship from home in the coming weeks, our priority remains the same, to praise and glorify our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!
