As previously communicated, Trinity leadership have been in prayer and deep discussion about when and how to reopen our worship services. After many internal meetings as well as discussion with the AECM (our denomination) and EPUPL (the church we rent from), we have planned for our first public service to be held at 106 rue de Grenelle on Sunday, 12 July at 17h30. Please note the following information:
- Masks must be worn at all times and social distancing rules observed.
- Hands must be sanitised on entry and there will be a specific directional flow regarding movement. The welcome team will be happy to guide you.
- Seats will be marked indicating where not to sit, although families may sit together.
- Services will be limited to 80 people. We will not be asking people to register as July and August are usually quieter. However, in the unlikely event that we reach capacity, we will unfortunately have to turn people away.
- EPUPL have assured us that they will be taking care of all government-regulation cleaning tasks between services.
- There will be no coffee hour after service. Also, mingling after service is not allowed for the moment (including in front of the church porch). Please exit in a prompt and orderly manner after the service.
- There will be no Sunday School or nursery at this time.
- Weekday activities and groups: Genesis will remain closed to the public until further notice.
Our Sunday video sermons (10:30 on Youtube) will continue for the next two weeks, June 21 & 28. Then, in order to be fully prepared and serve you best, our ministry leaders will have a full test service on July 5th. This will not be open to the public but a recorded version of the service will be posted online on Monday, 6 July, via our YouTube channel.
We care about your health and safety and understand how the conditions above may make you feel uncomfortable, but we do encourage you to return and worship with us. As many guests of Trinity have observed over the years, “Trinity is like a slice of Heaven.” Even if our services are masked, touchless, and distanced, we can still hear from God’s word and be the multi-cultural community He has called us to be.
