Welcome

We seek to be a welcoming, spiritual home for English speaking people in Santiago, inspiring joyful Christian faith, and nurturing a loving community that serves our neighbors as disciples of Jesus Christ.

Hybrid* Services at SCC as of Sunday, September 26th, 2021 – we hope to see as many of you as possible in church with us!

(*Hybrid = physically and continuing online!)

If you are able to join us in person, please consider the following points: 
 
RETURN TO PHYSICAL CHURCH ATTENDANCE:
 
REGISTRATION: Due to the requirement to maintain physical distancing between family groups and limited building capacity under current regulations, we need you to sign up in advance each week if you’d like to attend our services in person.

We now have two sign-up forms: an INITIAL COMPLETE sign-up form, where we ask you for all the information we need to have to follow Covid regulations; and an ABBREVIATED sign-up form, to use for the Sundays after having already filled out the Initial Complete form at least once. Please complete the appropriate sign-up form by the Friday prior to the Sunday you plan to come along. We need ONE form per family group, as family groups will be seated together.

Link to ABBREVIATED SIGN-UP FORM (if having already filled out the initial complete form) https://forms.gle/xaQBUBEktsrJmp3a8


SEAT ALLOCATION: We will send you confirmation of your seating allocation by e-mail prior to the Sunday Service. Seating is in alternate pews and you must sit in the seat assigned to you. If you have been confirmed a seat and are subsequently unable to attend, please let us know.
 
VENTILATION: Doors and windows must be kept open due to mandatory ventilation requirements. We suggest you bring something warm if you think you may be cold considering we cannot heat the building.
 
ON ARRIVAL: Entrance will be via the chapel, where your temperature will be taken and alcohol gel provided for your hands.
 
DURING THE SERVICE: Masks are to be worn at all times. Sunday School is offered for 4 – 7 year olds and 2nd to 6th graders. 7th to 12th graders attend church and can join up afterwards from 11.30 – 12.00 noon during the fellowship time. All children need to be signed up weekly, too – as a Covid measure.
 
AT THE END OF THE SERVICE: Exit will be via the side and main doors as directed by the ushers. Please vacate the church building promptly as it has to be sanitised prior to the midday service in Spanish. You are invited to join us afterwards in the front garden of the vicarage as we mingle over a cup of tea/coffee, served in disposable cups for your protection.
 
If you have any difficulty filling out the online form, please send us an e-mail prior to Friday to office@santiagochurch.org (“Church Attendance Sign-Up”) – and await confirmation.
