Welcome Back

Dear Community, 

 

It is our hope that you had a pleasant summer.

 

At this time, we are pleased to announce that our in-person Sunday services in the Sanctuary start on September 13th at 10:30 a.m.  We will be live-streaming our service and to join us live, please go to https://www.facebook.com/tsp427bloor/live/

 

To ensure the safety and well-being of everyone that attends the in-person Sunday service in the Sanctuary, seats will be assigned to individuals and families and those seats will be your assigned seats for Sept. 13 and also the following Sundays until further notice. Visitors are required to provide their name and contact information at the door.

 

We also ask that you follow a few simple-yet-effective guidelines while in the TSP building, including:

 

- Use hand sanitizer upon entering the building.  If you have your own please use it to reduce touchpoints. 

- Stay six feet apart from everyone (except the family members that you came with)

- Wear a mask all the time

- Stay home if youre sick or feeling unwell

- Sanitize/Wash your hands for 20 seconds if you use the restroom or touch anything.

- Adhere to the new bathroom capacities (one only in the main floor bathrooms, two if a child needs help)

-Do not switch your seats with anyone.

- No food or beverages are allowed in the Sanctuary. At this time NO FOOD OR DRINK IS ALLOWED IN THE BUILDING.

 

For the time being, the small kitchen is closed to all users other than Trinity-St. Pauls Staff.  The fountains remain operational.

Now more than ever, it's essential to do everything you can (as an individual and a team) to keep your community happy and healthy.

 

Thank you very much!
