Welcome to Digby Baptist

We are a fellowship of Christians who are called together to love and serve God, our community, and our world.  We worship together on Sundays, and have various other special events, as well as small groups for study and ministry.  Our building is 2 Mount Street, Digby, at the corner of Montague Row. We were founded here in Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1839.  We welcome you.  Call us at 902-245-2113.  digbybaptist@gmail.com

Digby Baptist is NOT meeting right now for worship services in person (January 2021). Once we do gather again, we will follow our pandemic procedures as outlined below the calendar of events…

Pandemic Protocols (reviewed by Pastor and Deacons, December 6, 2021)

Physical distancing is again required at Worship Services. We will continue to use every second pew in the sanctuary. People should stay physically distanced, and be together in family units or with close contacts.

A few things to keep in mind:

Please enter the church building through the main doors on Mount Street. When leaving, half of the congregation will leave by the main doors, half will leave by the side door to the parking lot.

All events and gatherings that are not worship services require proof of vaccination by all attendees. Other exceptions are choirs or other musicians practicing, staff meetings, and cleaning and preparation of the worship space: PoV is not required for these.

Everyone must use hand sanitizer upon entering, which will be provided at the doors.

Masks are still required, while entering, exiting, or spending any time in the building. Those publicly speaking during a service may remove them while speaking or singing, including choirs.

Greeters will take note of everyone’s name and contact information, & screen them about COVID exposure, etc.

Offerings can be placed in the receptacle as you enter.

Bulletins are available to be picked up at the main entry; pre-filled communion cups can also be picked up when entering.

Washrooms are open, to be used at your own risk. Please sanitize used surfaces when you exit.

Please do not attend if you are showing symptoms associated with COVID-19: cough (new or worsening), or two or more of the following: fever (chills, sweats), headache, runny nose or nasal congestion, sore throat, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. (Diagnosed chronic conditions are exempt). Also, if you have traveled outside of Atlantic Canada in the last 14 days or been in contact with a suspected case, we ask that you stay home.

For those not yet comfortable returning to the church building, some of the service will still be available online, in the Sermon/Worship Blog, posted on Sunday. Copies, on paper, are also delivered to local people who do not have internet access.
