At a special meeting of the Session on November 12, it was decided that in-person worship at Guildwood will be suspended as of Sunday, November 22, 2020 until further notice. The persistently high number of new COVID-19 cases in Toronto, the request by the Mayor and Chief Medical Officer to limit trips outside the home to essentials only, and the reports of COVID-19 cases within the Guildwood neighbourhood all factored into the decision. The Session feels that currently the risks associated with attending in-person worship are high, even with our protocols.
We will continue posting our worship resources online and delivering those resources to those who have requested them.
The health and safety of those in our community of faith is paramount. Please stay in touch with and pray for each other, and we will resume in-person worship when circumstances permit.
Clerk of Session
