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.

Announcing the introduction of hybrid* Services at SCC as of Sunday, September 26th, 2021!

(*Hybrid = physically and continuing online!)

If you would like to attend physically, 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. Please complete the sign-up form by Thursday at the latest. We need ONE form per family group, as families will be seated together.  <https://forms.gle/s8TUcrWkV8wRrGC19>
 
SEAT ALLOCATION: We will send you a confirmation by e-mail once you have been assigned your seat(s). Please note that this might take till the end of the week this first time round! The seats will be assigned on a “first come, first served” basis. People not assigned a seat will be notified and prioritised if they request to attend the following Sunday. Seating is in alternate pews and you must sit in the seat assigned to you. PLEASE WAIT FOR OUR CONFIRMATION EMAIL with your seat allocation before setting off for church. If you have been confirmed a seat and are subsequently unable to attend, please let us know so we can attempt to reassign your spaces.
 
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. Children will stay with their parents for the duration of the service.
 
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. For the moment we are unable to offer refreshments after the service.
 
If you have any difficulty filling out the online form, please send us an e-mail prior to the Thursday to office@santiagochurch.org (“Church Attendance Sign-Up”) – and await confirmation.

Information on our upcoming Sunday Service

This Sunday we shall be celebrating Holy Communion and look forward to welcoming Rev. Matthew Pope as our guest preacher (- the set readings are Isaiah 53:4-12 and Mark 10:35-45).
