WHAT CALVARY IS DOING TO STAY SAFE

  • Our friendly and helpful volunteers (ushers, greeters, etc.) will be standing and sitting 6 feet apart from other attendees.
  • Volunteers will be wearing masks.
  • All Calvary services will be as touch-free as possible to give you the safest experience.
  • Inside doors will be propped open or held open by volunteers.
  • Surfaces and seats will be sanitized and cleaned before and after all services. 
  • Additional hand-sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the building.
  • No water fountains will be open or usable.
  • Seating in the sanctuary will be every other row, with three seats left in between individuals/families.

WHAT CAN I DO?

  • If you (or anyone in your household) are feeling sick, if you have health concerns, if you have recently travelled, or if you have been in contact with anyone who is sick, please stay home and join us online.
  • Please wash your hands, use hand sanitizer often, and use proper methods with a sneeze or cough (into your arm, not your hands).
  • Maintain a distance of six or more feet between yourself and other guests.
  • Please respect the personal health decisions of others.
  • Reserve seats for you and your family in advance of attending.
  • Do not gather in groups before or after the service; please wave and say hello from a distance.
  • Please respect others and social distance when getting in and out of your vehicles.
  • Please wear a mask to the service. As per Waterloo Region Public Health, all attendees must wear a mask.  Exemptions include children under the age of 5, and those who are unable to wear a face covering due to a medical condition, disability, etc.

What to Expect When You Arrive

  • Church doors will open 30 minutes before the service start time, no earlier.
  • Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the service start time, in order to be seated.
  • Please enter the building at the front entrance, and check-in at Calvary Connect prior to proceeding to the sanctuary.
  • Children will be seated with their parents in the sanctuary.
  • Ushers will be available to help you find a seat: they will be seating individuals and families according to available space in the sanctuary, not by preference. If you have a specific need to be seated at the back, etc., please let your usher know.
  • Once in your seats we ask that you remain in your seats.
  • When the service is over, please wait for the ushers to dismiss your row. 
  • Washrooms will be available, but we ask that you use them only if necessary.

FREQUENTLY ASKED...

Do I have to reserve a seat?

Yes, you must pre-register in advance for Christmas Eve.  If a service is not full we will accept walk-in attendees.  Once capacity is reached, we will have to turn people away.  We highly recommend that you reserve your seat!

What if I reserve seats and then can’t make it?

If you can no longer make it, please follow the “View / Manage Order Online” link in your confirmation email to cancel your seats. (If it is your first time using Eventbrite, you will have to create an account).  This will free up your seats so that others can reserve them.

What if I go to reserve a seat and it is already full?

We welcome you to join us online to watch the live stream of the Cambridge Christmas Eve service at 4pm and 8pm if the service is full.

We encourage you to register early to secure your seat(s).

In our family service, all children will stay in the sanctuary with their parents.  Kids@Calvary (including any nursery or toddler programs) will not be available for the time being.  Elements specifically directed at our children will be included each Sunday.  

An activity package will be given to kids each week, but we ask parents to bring a pencil and crayons.

Will nursery or any kids program be available?

No, all children will sit with their parents in the service.

How long will the service be?

The service will be 45 minutes long.
