In Person Service!

We can't wait to Gather together!  We have created a safe place for everyone to come and worship together.  We understand that services might not look the same as they usually would but it will be so good to be under one roof celebrating and being inspired together.  


Creating a safe place has required a lot of changes on our side and will ask some things of you as well.  The first being, everyone that is looking to attend our service will need to register.  You can do that easily through the registration link below.

We have to limit the amount of people that are in our services as well as maintain proper social distancing.  The only way to do that is to have everyone register for service.  


This will need to happen every week.  Registration will open every Sunday at 1:00pm for the following Sunday.  Registration closes at 6:00am on the Saturday before service.  If you miss this deadline and would still like to come please email us at hello@ecvictoria.ca.  We can't guarantee anything, but we will take a look at our registrations and see if we can fit you in. 


You can register HERE or on the Church Center App.  We will be making a seating arrangement based on registration order and max seating in the space.  We have seating available in the main gym and in the overflow section in the fireside room.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is registration mandatory to attend a service?

A: Yes, we are required by order of the Provincial Health Authority to obtain some personal information to support contact tracing if needed.  


Q: Can I come earlier than my scheduled arrival time?

A: No.  To maintain social distancing please arrive at your scheduled arrival time.


Q: How do I check-in when I arrive at Church?

A: Our Greeters will meet you at the door and will point you to the Welcome Center where our Host will check you in and point you in your next steps.


Q: Am I able to sit with my friends when I get to Church?

A: Seating will be arranged by registrations.  We will not be able to change the seating arrangement on the fly.  If you have a friend in your bubble, arrange to register with them as a group.


Q: Will there be a live band?

A: Unfortunately, at this time it would require too much space to have a live band.  The space between the band members as well as the first row would take up too much of the space that we have available.  We are limiting the size of the stage to allow for more people to be together.  We will be worshipping together with the pre-recorded worship songs that our team has created.


Q: Are there any kids services at this time?

A: At this time we are focusing on our adult gathering.  As soon as these services have become more routine we intent to make available kids services.


Q: Are masks required?

A: We would love for everyone joining us for service to consider wearing a mask.  We will have some available for free at the door if you do not have one.


Q: Will coffee, tea or hot chocolate be available?

A: Yes. You will have the opportunity to submit your coffee, tea or hot chocolate order with your registration.  Upon arrival, after checking in, you will pick up your beverage made to your order and continue to your seat.


Q: Can I come up for prayer at the end of service?

A: At the end of service we will be having our prayer team come to those who would like prayer.  Just remain in your seat and after everyone is dismissed our prayer team will come to you.


Q: Will there be social time after the service?

A: The centre does not have a space large enough for everyone while maintaining social distancing.  After service, we kindly ask that you leave the building and maintain social distancing.  It will be important for our community to see us being intentional in adhering to the measures we have put in place.


Q: I have a question not on here.  Is there someone I can email?

A: Yes. Please email us at hello@ecvictoria.ca if you have any further questions.
