Redeemer and Covid-19
Gathering as a church has looked different during the Covid-19 pandemic. In recent months, we have been able to gather freely without too many restrictions. Going into the winter months of 2021-22, we expect our meetings to be disrupted in various ways as the pandemic continues to affect the wider society. On this page you can find the information you need to know about what we are currently doing to help stop the spread of Covid-19.
We have in-person meetings every Sunday at OPEN (Vesteplein 100, 2611 WG Delft) with a limited seating capacity due to the 1.5m social distancing rule to slow down the transmission of Covid-19. Anyone is welcome to sign-up to these meetings via the Events Calendar or on the home page. There is capacity for everyone to come once in every three or four weeks physically. Some of these meetings have special activities focused on children, the sign-up priority for these meetings is for those with children aged 0 – 12 years old. Each week there is a space for nursing months and young children under 3. For the weeks when you do not come to OPEN, we recommend meeting up with others from your Life Group and following the live-stream together.
Special Functions (e.g. baptisms, marriages, etc.)
As part of our regular worship as a Christian community we need to in some cases break social distancing rules (i.e. coming within 1.5 m of other people). This applies to performing baptisms, giving communion, marriage, laying on of hands to pray, and the anointing of the sick. During this time, these functions can be done by members of the Leadership Team of the church. In addition, all participants need to have a health check beforehand and sign the following form.
