I've Got Questions
We understand you may have questions! This is new and different and we're all learning to adapt together. Hopefully some of these answers can help.
Q. Do you plan on returning to regular service times?
As of Oct 4th, the morning service times return to normal at 9am and 11am. For now, we still do not have a 6pm service time though we are always re-evaluating Sundays.
Can I still watch online?
Yes! Our services are LIVE streamed on Facebook and the website at 8:45am and 11am. Services are available to watch any time following the 11am service in our message library or on Facebook.
Q. Can I come even if I am over 65?
All are welcome! Please consider AHS guidelines and make the decision you are comfortable with.
Q. Am I required to wear a mask?
Masks are not mandatory to attend but the wearing of masks is welcome. This is a personal choice. Masks are available if you forget to bring your own and would like one. You will notice that, if unable to physically distance, our staff working that day and volunteers will be wearing masks. Please respect the choice of everyone attending.
Q. Who has access to my personal information when I register?
The information you provide when you register is used to provide a confirmation via email and your QR code for Sunday. This information is only provided for the purpose of contact tracing if someone who has attended is found to have COVID-19.
Q. Can I sing?
Yes! If you choose to sing during worship, a mask is recommended as per AHS guidelines.
Q. Are the seats physically distanced?
Ushers will be seating attendees on Sundays two seats apart from another cohort to accommodate physical distancing recommendations.
Q. Will there be prayer after the service?
Yes! Join the team for prayer at the west end of the foyer following each service. We are also available online to pray with you! If you would like prayer, please fill out the information form online.
Q. Is the Mother's Room open?
It will be open but with limited seating. We encourage you to use this space as a private and safe spot for feeding and changing. Please, bring your own supplies and mat for changing as that has been removed from the room for now.
Q. Will we still do communion together?
Yes! We value coming together to partake of the elements. Things may look a little different, such as individual communion packs. But we still plan on coming to the Lord's table together.
Q. Will there be Kid's Ministry programs?
Kid's Ministry programs have kicked-off! Based on AHS guidelines, there will not be childcare for 24 months and under. However, age 3 and up will have Kid's Church. Please be patient with us as we learn what this will look like and how best to run our programming while caring for those around us. For more information on Sundays in Kids' Min, visit CrossRoadsChurch.ca/CrossRoadsKids.
Q. How can I be involved?
Gathering together again takes the whole church family! We need greeters, scanners, ushers, kids min leaders, and cleaners. If you are available to help, please take a minute to fill out our serve form.
Q. What if someone who attends the service is found to have COVID-19?
For the health and safety of each and every one of us and to trace the source, AHS has requested a contact trace log for all gatherings. This means, the registration information you have provided will be provided to AHS only if it is found that someone who has attended has COVID-19. You will then be contacted and notified.
