Church Update

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Health & Safety Response

COVID-19 Update

Last updated: August 27, 2020 5:00PM


Hello Pathway Family,

We are excited about worshiping together as a church family! However, things will look a little bit different as we work hard to respect the Phase 4 re-opening guidelines the Manitoba Government has put in place for churches.

Of course, for a while, things won't look like they have always looked - we've made a few changes while you've been away. Please understand, there is no pressure to attend in person. Only come if you are comfortable attending. We will still offer the service online as per usual.

The information below is to inform you of what to expect from Pathway as we move forward with our Sunday morning gathering.

We will be following the Pandemic Response System on the government of Manitoba’s website. Each color stage corresponds with what you can expect in your attendance at Pathway.

Please read the information below and then click the link at the end to reserve a spot for this weekend!

If You Are Unwell, Please Watch The Service Online
Please stay home and watch online if you or a member of your household:

  • Has had a fever in the last 14 days.

  • Shows any symptoms of COVID-19 (runny nose, cough, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, shortness of breath) 

  • Has had contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19




Please Sign Up For The Upcoming Service

If you, or someone you know, wishes to attend a service but is unable to register online, please call the church office for assistance 204-332-1616.

If your plans change and you are unable to attend, please call the church office.   

We have room for walk-ins, but signing up ahead of time helps us with proper set up. We will keep the sign-up information for 21 days in order to know who to contact should someone in the service be tested positive for covid-19.  As per the guidelines, we are limited to 200 people in the sanctuary and 200 people in the gym.  We encourage attendance in both the sanctuary and the gym because something wonderful takes place when we are able to meet together.  

Will I Need To Wear A Mask?

It is not currently a requirement in Manitoba, but we want everyone to feel as comfortable as possible, so you are certainly welcome to wear one, but not required.

Will We Be Singing?

We have a worship team leading us in worship and if you wish to sing along we will ask that you follow the current Manitoba Health Guidelines.

Note: If masks are required, we ask that you bring your own from home but we will have a limited number at the church if you forget yours.  

There may be a requirement to meet with subgroups, we call these pods.  This will be subject to the Province of Manitoba’s Covid-19 response updates




Pathway has decided that if we are asked to have less than 30% of our building capacity we will not be hosting in person services.

LifeGroups and Courses will run with in person meetings.

LifeGroups and Courses will be available for online meetings.




Online services will be provided.

LifeGroups and Courses will only be available through online meetings.

Our Response

These are unprecedented times which demands our hearts be filled with faith, wisdom from above and confident leadership. As a church we submit to the governing authority and we will collaborate with them in keeping our buildings closed. Remember, our church buildings may be closed, but our church certainly is not closed. Church was never about buildings, but about people. It is about you, you matter and your story matters. Our church will never close but rather we will adjust our strategy to the changing circumstances.

Weekend Service Live Stream:

We will continue worshipping online, bringing a message of hope to you in the comfort of your home. This weekend we will add another live video broadcast from our Church Online platform – Sunday at 11:00am! Remember, we are a church in action, let’s get the word out and use your social media to let others know about the services.


Join the live conversation at 11:00AM every Sunday

Stay Healthy & Informed

In a crisis like this, it’s common for misinformation to spread, and it can be difficult to figure out who and what to trust. Here are some reliable resources that can connect you with accurate and helpful info.

Information for Manitobans 

Find information about COVID-19, how to protect yourself, your family and your community and what to do if you suspect you have the virus.

Help reduce your risk of infection: 
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Using soap and water is the single most effective way of reducing the spread of infection.

  • If a sink is not available, alcohol based hand rubs (ABHR) can be used to clean your hands as long as they are not visibly soiled. If they are visibly soiled, use a wipe and then ABHR to effectively clean them.

  • Do not touch your face, eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue or the crease of your elbow when you sneeze or cough.

  • Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.

  • Do not share food, drinks, utensils, etc.
