Amber Stage

Wondering what's going on at St. Thomas' during this time of Covid 19?

 

Important Message from the wardens of St. Thomas' Anglican Church

As you know, we are now operating in the Red Stage according to Diocesan Guidelines.  The plan is for the Diocese to move into the "Amber Stage” as of September 7. The Amber  Guidelines will permit us to have services at St. Thomas’ although there are numerous conditions that we must meet and steps that we must take before we can re-open the church.  These Guidelines are developed at The Ecclesiastical Province of Ontario, fleshed out more at the Diocesan level and then turned over to Parishes to develop an implementation plan which must be approved by the Diocese before services can be held.  

At this time (and COVID-19 has taught us that things evolve rapidly) we do know that when services resume: masks will be worn, social distancing must be maintained, the Eucharist may be celebrated with the distribution of bread only, a soloist or cantor may sing but there will be no congregational singing, no movement from the pews for passing the Peace, no coffee hour or pot-luck meals and we must have a list of attendees for contact tracing.  It will be different.  We will also continue our online services.  Full details including links to all “drop-in” meetings and messages from the Bishop can be accessed through the Diocesan website:  www.ontario.anglican.ca

We are now working on our implementation plan following the Guidelines and with everyone's safety in mind.  

Given the current restrictions, and our priority of ensuring the health and safety of parishioners and the community, we decided that we should not hold the Fall Rummage Sale and the Christmas Market.  If you normally come to either event with $20 or $50 to spend, perhaps you would consider donating that amount to St. Thomas’. (Tax receipts provided for donations of $20 or more.)  All donations to St. Thomas’ are appreciated.

Kitchen user education

 Please stay current with proper kitchen safety and practices.

The Kitchen Manual can be found as a download in the Resource section of this website. This should be read periodically by all users to keep updated. Any questions should be directed to the church kitchen management team. This is important for insurance purposes.

Education sessions for those requiring supervisor training or those wishing an update will be held as needed. Please give your name to the office and the Kitchen Team will get back to you with the time of the next session. The education only takes about half an hour, but it’s a vital part of our compliance with local health and safety regulations, now that we have been approved to cook and serve food to the general public.

Register for training through the office by phoning 613 962-3636 or emailing office@stthomasbelleville.ca.
