Register to worship In-Person on SUNDAY!

Attendance reduced to less than 10 due to COVID. You must register by THU for in-person worship THIS COMING SUN 9AM & 11AM.

The Church of St Stephen holds two services in-person: 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM.

Public Health regulations require that we have a record of every person present at every worship service and can provide a phone number or email address with which to contact each person should contact tracing be necessary.

Under lockdown requirements, a maximum of 10 people can be in the building at one time. We have to ensure the number of people present at each worship service does not exceed the maximum allowed by Public Health Toronto. If your preferred service date and time does NOT appear on the registration form, this means no open places remain.

Please sign up by the preceding Thursday to attend the in-person worship service using the online form below. This form will...

  • minimize the paper and pen you have to touch upon entry (so you don't have to fill in a public health screening form)
  • help us to keep to our capacity limit and so can maintain social distance
  • enable contact tracing, should a person present later test positive for COVID-19
  • Reserve your space 

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Social distancing restrictions will be in place, especially in regards to seating and dismissal.
  • Face masks are required while in the building
  • There will be no nursery or children's programs available.
  • You must stay in the seat the ushers assign to you - which includes people from the same household sitting together - and everyone staying two meters apart, even when sharing the peace.
  • We will be sanitizing the sanctuary before and after each worship service to ensure the safety of everyone attending.
  • When you come to the church, we ask that you use the front door only. The back door will be locked.
  • Ushers will meet you at the entrance to make sure you are on the list for that service and comply with the screening questions shown below
  • There will be safety signs, hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes easily accessible for everyone.

We want you to know that this service is for those who are comfortable attending. We will continue to offer an online service during this time. Your safety is our main priority.

Use the graphic below to ASSESS YOURSELF for COVID-19 symptoms. If YOU feel COVID-19 symptoms, quarantine yourself, and worship online rather than in-person. 

If you answer "no" to all of the screening questions, and only if you answer "no" to all of the screening questions, complete the form below to register.

When you "1-Select Week", select the DATE AND TIME. Note that you have to register BEFORE THURSDAY for this coming Sunday as we print the package for the ushers on Friday. If your preferred DATE AND TIME does NOT appear, this means all places have been reserved.
