8:00 a.m. Public Worship
View the 8:00 a.m. Service Leaflet here.
The bishops have added a Stage 1b to the reopening plan for the diocese (you can read the entire plan here). During stage 1b churches can hold outdoor public worship, and at Good Shepherd we will offer a rite I service of Morning Prayer at 8:00 a.m. each Sunday (weather permitting). This service, which will take place in the in the cloister garden, is limited to 25 people.
To be as safe as possible at our outdoor worship, everyone is required to…
- wear a mask,
- observe social distance of at least 6 feet,
- print the bulletin at home (available here) and bring it to the service, and
- bring a chair (spots will be marked for chair placement).
Please note that the risks involved with attending church remain high, and it is strongly recommended that elders, people with health concerns, and/or those who exhibit any of the following symptoms continue to worship from home during stage 1b.
- cough or shortness of breath
- difficulty breathing
- fever or chills
- fatigue, muscle pain, or body aches
- sore throat
- new loss of taste or smell
- congestion or runny nose
- nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
The 8:00 a.m. service will not be live streamed, but we will continue to live stream a service at 10:30 each Sunday, which you can participate in by visiting gslive.org.
