COVID-19 Protocol

Please note that, while masking is not required under Provincial regulations, we strongly recommend and encourage masking at our concerts. Ascension Church has seating for 250 people, which allows for plenty of distancing between parties who are not sitting together.
To keep everyone safe, we ask that everyone attending please mask and distance where possible, and to please stay home if you or a family member have any respiratory symptoms or are feeling at all unwell.
Thank you for your co-operation.
