UPDATE: All tickets have now been allocated. Join us for the livestream at www.christchurchcathedral.bc.ca/live
The Cathedral is thrilled to reintroduce an Advent Carol Service this year. This is a service beloved by parishioners, friends and visitors alike, and in the past has drawn up to 800 attendees.
Obviously, this is not a tenable arrangement while we are still battling COVID. Even though we are asking people to attend our services by livestream if they are not fully vaccinated, we must recognize that there is no mandate for churches to actually check vaccination status at the door. This suggests a degree of caution when it comes to managing numbers.
We have a plan. We will see how it works for the Advent Carol Service, and then revise it as necessary for our other large services in December.
We are capping attendance at 350 (about 40% of capacity and 50% of average attendance). We will do this by providing a combination of tickets and pre-registration. To enter the cathedral – just as if this were a concert – attendees will need to present their ticket or EventBrite pre-registration.
