Cancelling in person gatherings at BUC

With the appearance of the Omicron variant and the rapid increases in COVID 19 infections over the past week the Operations Advisory Group OAG strongly recommends that all in person ministry event gatherings at Beach United Church are cancelled effective Monday December 20, 2021. This recommendation has been approved by the Board.

The OAG and the Board decided to be proactive, rather than waiting for the politics to work its way through to comprehensive changes in Provincial guideline restrictions. We believe the numbers and the science that has been presented, along with our need to prioritize the safety of our congregation and our guests, makes this step necessary.

With this recommendation in place, we will be returning to hosting online ministry events exclusively. This means that currently planned events will be live-streamed: which includes the following worship services – Dec 21 Longest Night, Dec 24 Christmas Eve, Dec 26 Boxing Day.

We hope that despite these measures; you will be able to find joy and peace this Christmas season.

Brian, Nanci, David and Barry.

Message from Karen
This is not how we had hoped to celebrate Christmas this year, but it is the right thing to do. Doing the best we can to ensure the safety of us all sometimes means making difficult decisions and I am appreciative that the Board and OAG have acted quickly, with love and care in their hearts.

I know that when Steven Webb and I are in the sanctuary we will feel the energy of your presence. So sing those carols heartily in your homes and let us celebrate the birth of love in the world once more.

Blessings, Karen
