At its recent meeting, the Task Force on Campus Use agreed Westminster should generally maintain its current building use protocols (staff working remotely as much as possible; no in-person worship; no groups in building) with some modest adjustments:
- Increase capacity in the sanctuary for Sunday streaming team to 15 people.
- Allow special services in sanctuary (weddings/funerals only) for up to 25 people.
- Allow groups up to 25 to meet outside on church property, by reservation, with proper social distancing, masks, using own chairs, no access to building.
The Task Force will meet again on July 16, and may consider protocols for small groups meeting in the building, due to Chester County moving to a Green Phase. We do not recommend in-person Sunday worship due to safety concerns; cleaning demands between services; the limitations of our space to accommodate large groups with physical distancing; and the infrastructure required to invite people into the building (pre-registration to attend; seating instructions; bathroom use; personal safety and hygiene equipment).
