RSVP for Sunday at The Centre (Kickoff)

For the last several months, Westsiders have been gathering all over the city together in small groups to worship and hear the Word of God preached in their homes, in parks and backyards around the city via our online live-stream service. 

We want to encourage you to continue leaning into meeting in these small, safe, and creative ways, but we know not everyone has reliable internet access or a large enough space to invite others into safely. That’s why we’re making as much space as possible available for gathering in person on Sundays.

Please stay home and participate in our online live-stream service if you or anyone in your household:

  • has had a fever in the past 14 days,
  • has returned from traveling to another country and is required to quarantine for 14 days, 
  • shows any symptoms of COVID-19 (runny nose, cough, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, shortness of breath), or
  • has been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

RSVP SPACES AT THE CENTRE

We’re happy to announce that we are now providing RSVP space in four physically distanced zones - each with a maximum capacity of 50 people - for Sunday Gatherings. 

  • Zone 1: Orchestra Level
  • Zone 2: Dress Circle Level
  • Zone 3: Balcony Level
  • Zone 4: The Commons

SERVICE LOCATION & TIME

  • 777 Homer Street, Vancouver, BC
  • Sundays at 10 a.m.
  • RSVP/Registration is required each week in order to attend a gathering.
  • Each Zone has a designated arrival time (you will receive it upon confirming your RSVP). For safety reasons, do your absolute best to adhere to your arrival time.
  • If you do not arrive and check in by 9:55 a.m. you will lose your reservation, in order to make room for walk-ins, and you will need to join the physically distanced walk-in queue.
  • Walk-ins are not guaranteed a space.
  • We recommend that you arrive at least 15 minutes before the service start time, so that you have time to check in, say hello to others, and get coffee before the service begins.

REQUIREMENTS AND SAFETY GUIDELINES

  1. RSVP/Registration is required in order to attend a gathering in either The Auditorium or The Commons. Be sure to add attendees for all members of your party (including yourself) before submitting your registration. No admittance will be permitted without having previously registered, however you’ll be able to join the walk-in queue. Walk-ins are not guaranteed a space.
  2. We are unable to offer Sunday Kids Classes in-person at this time, however kids can still attend a gathering. Young children have a hard time physical distancing, so please hold your child or have them sit on your lap when possible. Make sure to include your children when selecting how many members you have in your party.
  3. We ask that you observe Physical Distancing, with six feet between you and other households/bubbles. Please fellowship and pray for each other at safe distances, even in lobbies or in entering or leaving the building.
  4. If you are not feeling well, please stay home. Services will continue to be provided online each week.
  5. Please sanitize/wash hands upon entry.
  6. We ask that you bring a mask and wear it during singing for both the safety of you and your neighbour.
  7. Don’t be offended if a staff member or volunteer asks you to mind your distance or put on a mask—it’s easy to forget these things when we’re with people we care about, so we will probably all need reminders from time to time.

Registration for the coming Sunday's gathering will open at 6:30 p.m. this Thursday
