Up-to-date information on Christ Church Episcopal's Gatherings Related to COVID-19

 

MASK-WEARING

Wondering if masks are required indoors? Check the CDC tracker that guides us. 

Low (Green): Mask Optional
Medium (Yellow): Mask Optional
High (Orange): Masks Required

Following guidance from the CDC and our church, while Henrico County is in low (green) or medium (yellow) risk categories, masks are optional. Those who wish to wear masks are encouraged to do so. If Henrico County moves to high (orange), or if CDC guidance changes, people should be ready to wear masks again as part of surge mitigation. 

For now, social distancing is still recommended. Please join us in being supportive of those who wish to continue wearing masks. Take extra care and caution when getting close to others. Thank you for your loving support at this time.
 

WORSHIP

All are welcome in worship at Christ Church!

Sundays at 9 AM
In-person, interactive Family Worship for children, youth, adults. Nursery Care available.

Sundays at 11 AM
Classic CCE Worship, in-person or livestreamed to YouTube

 

A simple Morning Prayer service takes place each Wednesday at 8 a.m. over Zoom, except for those Wednesdays that Holy Eucharist is celebrated by a priest and therefore the congregation is invited to gather in the church. This information is updated each week in Realm Events.

Social distancing is encouraged. Please remain aware that, for some, the low level of risk of COVID-19 infection, even when vaccinated, is still a threat.

Handshakes, hugs, and passing of The Peace — As you approach someone, please ask whether they are up for a handshake or a hug. When in doubt, a simple peace sign with your hands is always welcome!

Holy Communion is currently offered on Sunday mornings and on Wednesdays when a priest is available. Safety measures are taken and we encourage each person to consider their own safety when receiving communion. Anyone who is interested should contact staff to ask for a lay eucharistic visitor to bring them home communion.

FELLOWSHIP AND FORMATION

Ministry groups, small group fellowships, outreach ministries, Bible studies, etc. are all eligible to  meet in-person on campus or off-campus provided they meet safety requirements. Please be in touch with the staff member that oversees your ministry, or contact David Ellis, our facilities manager, to make sure that the room you’d like to use is available. Currently, there is no limitation on the number of people attending a group. However, within your group, please openly communicate your comfort-level so that your group can figure out the numbers of persons you are comfortable with. Also, if there are unvaccinated persons in your group, please talk about how to include them comfortably. Please ask all members of your group what they are comfortable with and together find an approach that enables everyone to participate.

As you gather for fellowship after church, please move to the Milling Area or outside so that we can reach our goal of getting fresh exchange of air between services.

OUTREACH AND MISSION

Our hands-on ministries continue. Please check the weekly eNews and Realm newsfeed for how to participate.

UPDATES

Updates will be communicated as conditions change. Want to better manage your communications? Please contact Jenny Fairchild, Communications Manager, for assistance.
