Worship Gatherings (05/27/21 Update)

Effective May 30, 2021, the total number of people participating in all worship services in Saskatchewan cannot exceed 30 per cent of seating capacity or 150 people, whichever is less. These guidelines apply to all worship services, including celebrations of life, weddings and outdoor ceremonies. Seating (or designated worship space) must be arranged so that physical distancing can be observed at all times.

Everyone in attendance at a place of worship must wear a mask except clergy members or religious leaders who are leading a service or ceremony while speaking from a podium, lectern, platform, stage, desk or other standing or seating area dedicated to speaking.

For the purposes of contact tracing, places of worship are required to collect and maintain a list of people that are present within their facilities for any purposes. Lists must be maintained confidentially by the place of worship and destroyed after 30 days.

Worship Gatherings (03/21 Update)

In-Person Worship Capacity Increased

The Premier’s announcement on Tuesday (March 9, 2021) in regard to places of worship returns things to where they were prior to November 27th of last year.

Effective Friday, March 19th, we will be again permitted to have up to 30% of our auditorium’s seating capacity subject to the required physical distancing, wearing of masks, and other COVID-19 protocols. This gives us a slightly increased capacity for those attending in-person worship. We are also permitted to have a Children’s Time every Sunday during the sermon (included in the capacity limit).

The Zoom simulcast will continue to be available.

“Non-ceremonial” gatherings are still limited to 30 people.
