Re-Opening delay until Sunday October 4th, 2020
The installation of the new windows in the sanctuary was the last piece of our renovation work. When the windows (along with the outside trim connected to the stone) were installed in June, the brittle plaster on the inside sustained more damage than we had anticipated. Special wooden moldings had to be milled and when these are eventually installed the final step will involve a significant amount of plastering and patching, that will then need to be sanded and painted. In terms of the inside of the building, this will in fact be the messiest part of the renovations.
The original plan called for this process to be completed soon after the end of the construction holiday in July, which would have given us the month of August for the installation of the new audio and video equipment and the cleanup and sanitary preparations for re-opening on the first Sunday in September.
For a number of reasons, the skilled tradesmen working on our windows have had to delay their installation several times, and we only just received final confirmation that the work will be done September 8th to 11th. Only once their work is complete, can we finalize the installation of the new audio and video equipment that will be necessary to live stream our services.
The services on September 6th and 13th will be prerecorded and available online, and we hope to be able to broadcast live services on September 20th and 27th to test run the system.
With the building completely refreshed and cleaned, including new windows and lighting, with the new audio and video system fine tuned and with the proper COVID 19 sanitation measures in place … we look forward to welcoming you back to live services in the building at Côte des Neiges Presbyterian Church on Sunday, October 4th!
(For those who are available, we will have a final clean up and preparation day on Saturday, October 3rd, beginning at 9am.)
