Reserve a place at an upcoming worship service for yourself and others in your group.

We are providing this service — which can be used here online and by telephone — to ensure everyone’s safety at in-person worship services at these two locations. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Deena Hinshaw has decreed restrictions on public gatherings. This limits the number of souls that each of our church buildings can handle for “public events” such as worship.

Please be aware of the following:

  • Before being granted entry to the service you have booked you will be required to answer some health-related questions.
  • No one will be granted entry to a scheduled worship service unless they have a valid booking for that specific service date and time.
  • People who are not able to use the online booking system may phone in their requests at the numbers noted below. You will not have a valid made-by-phone booking unless it is confirmed to you with a reply phone call.
  • Face masks will be required for all attendees and 2m personal distancing practices will be required. If you don’t have a mask, one will be provided to you.
  • Like many retail stores, we’ll have tape arrows on the floor of the church building, indicating the flow of movement. Please follow the arrows!
  • When you book, please indicate the number of people in your cohort, including you, who you are certain will be attending. We assume that you will be seated together with those people.
  • As long as a worship service event has capacity, the system will allow you to book seats up until the indicated cutoff time (see below).
  • After you have made an online booking, you will receive a confirmation email. You do not need to print and bring a copy of it with you; we’ll have your name on a list!

Masks must be worn!
If you don't have one, we'll supply you with one.

If you have any problems, questions, or suggestions as to how this system might function better, please direct them to the webmaster, Ian Bowden.

This system has been created in a way that dozens of other churches, synagogues, temples, mosques — whatever — may potentially post their worship services here and manage attendance. Contact Ian if you’d like more information. We’d love to help you out!
