Information regarding services in OKS
We are so thankful that the community is gradually opening again, and that we now have the possibility to gather up to 200 people.
Please keep reading for important information regarding attendance at the services, and answers to other questions you may have.
Pre-registration (for free, of course) is still required to attend all OKS services.
It is a simple and uncomplicated process, and each service/gathering will have its own registration link that you will find in the calendar for each church.
This is to make sure that we do not gather more than 200 people, and to keep track of everyone that attends a service for potential contact tracing.
The small amount of personal information you leave in the registration will only be used for this purpose. You do not have to be a member of the church to register for a service.
Is it safe to attend a service now?
With the measures and guidelines that is now being followed, we think it is a lower risk to visit church than many other arenas in the community that are open.
The OKS administration has worked through the official guidelines, established routines, and shared this knowledge to the leaders in the different OKS locations.
No one is one hundred percent «protected» from being infected, but opening for gatherings up to 200 people is in line with the government and their strategy for re-opening the community. We fully trust the government in their assessment of the situation, and do encourage participation.
We believe it is healthy and good to participate in a Sunday service – for our mental health, our spiritual health, for the church life and the social life.
Other important information
If you are in quarantine, suspect being sick, have symptoms of respiratory infection or other mild symptoms, you cannot attend any services or other events.
Upon arrival you will be greeted by our friendly volunteers, and they will check that you are registered for the service. They can help you register when you arrive, if there are any «free spots» in the amount of 200 people.
Everyone that is not from the same household must keep at least 1 metre distance. No hugging or hand shaking. The rules for good hand hygiene still apply, and there will be antibac available when you enter the building and at other relevant places.
Like you may have experiences at airports, our volunteers may ask you a couple of simple questions, to make sure that you are familiar with the infection control measures.
There will be no serving of food.
All our measures and routines exist for your safety and with the purpose of making church safe. You as an attendee is welcome to enjoy the service, as long as you have understood the general guidelines for infection control.
We truly believe it will be amazing to be able to have Sunday services again, and we hope that the community will continue to gradually re-open so that we are able to have services at all our locations.
