* Building Closures *

It is officially the transition into mild weather, but spring in NS can still be unpredictable. At Bethany, we are trying to simplify our building closure and program cancellation policies to ensure duty of care for our faith community.

During the week and Saturday, Board of Managers in collaboration with lay and ministry staff, decide if the building closes to renters and members for clean up after weather systems or other building repair or maintenance issues.

On Sundays, the process for this decision falls to the Lead Minister, Clerk of Session and Chair of the Executive Board regarding cancellation of worship service.

An announcement decision will occur by 8am. Check in various locations, depending on access to power and technology as applicable for circumstances, i.e. CBC Storm Centre, Bethany website, social media, and a congregational email when possible.

On entry points to the building, posted will be a closure notice.

Lost and Found– Items usually end up in the office. We have a little white bin where treasures are kept.
