Dear Members and Friends of Avondale

On behalf of our Re-entry Team I am advising you that the Re-Entry Team met on Monday, December 21, 2020 to review our plan in light of the Provincial Order for Lockdown as of December 26 at 12:01 am. We are advising you of the following changes effective December 26, 2020 – through to January 23, 2021:

We will be shifting back to the level of operation we had in place in the spring/summer:

  • WORSHIP – We will not be offering in-person worship after Christmas Eve Service. Worship will be available through listen live link and the live-streaming
  • BUILDING IS CLOSED- All member/non-member use of the building will be solely virtual – please keep this in mind as you schedule any team/other activities with our Zoom Account – schedule through Yvonne
  • AVON NURSERY SCHOOL – Child care is now considered essential so we are supporting the Nursery School to remain open
  • OUR STAFF – Staff will continue to work and will be available for their responsibilities; please reach out if you are in need.
  • BUILDING IS LOCKED – The building will remain closed for the duration of the lockdown; if you are needing to drop anything off to the office please make arrangements with Yvonne in advance
  • SIGNAGE ON DOORS, PHONES and WEBSITE – will be revised to reflect the current level of operation
  • STAYING CONNECTED WHILE WE STAY SAFE – We will resume the WEEKLY NEWS EDITION for the period of lockdown – any content for inclusion should be sent to Yvonne on Mondays by noon – next date is Monday, December 28. As for our “INTENTIONAL APPROACH TO WINTER” – activities that can be virtual or outdoors can still proceed and will be included in weekly edition
  • These plans will remain in place for the duration of the lockdown, and at least until January 23rd, 2021

Wishing you the Peace of the season along with a safe and healthy Christmas and January,

Terri Sparling, Council Chair
