We live-stream our 10:00am service through our church's YouTube channel and post Sunday sermons on our sermons page.

What to Expect

Every church has a style of worship and a pattern of worship (i.e. “liturgy”) that is distinct. A church’s style emerges from a collection of factors including the church’s vision, leadership, cultural context, and members. Our church's pattern of worship (“liturgy”) is designed to help promote practices of worship that will shape our community to become more faithful followers of Jesus.

At Nelson Covenant Church, we would describe our worship style as accessible and casual, while describing our liturgy as traditional without being rigid. Worship songs and biblical teaching are the foundational pieces of our worship services. However, we also regularly include a mixture of the following worship practices into our Sunday gatherings:

  • Prayer times (personal and public)
  • Announcements
  • Testimonies
  • Ministry Reports 
  • Communion
  • Scripture readings
  • Benedictions (an end of service blessing)

Our services are approximately one hour long.

PLEASE NOTE: If you plan on joining us in-person, you must adhere to the following health guidelines. If you are unable for any reason to commit to following these guidelines, you are welcome to participate through our live-stream from your home.

Before You Come to Church

  • If you're hesitant or uncomfortable gathering with a larger group at this time, we respect and understand that decision. The pandemic is not over. While vaccinations are allowing the restart plan to move forward, COVID-19 still poses a risk that may lead some to hold off on in-person gatherings at this time. We hope that even if you choose to refrain from in-person worship services at this time, that you will reach out to Pastor Jeff and/or our Site Leadership Team so we can help you get reconnected in meaningful and safe ways that work for you and your family.
  • You must not attend if you or a member of your household are sick. A person with COVID-19 is infectious several days prior to onset of symptoms to 10 days after onset of symptoms. Symptoms include:
    • Fever or chills
    • Cough
    • Loss of sense of smell or taste
    • Difficulty breathing
    • Sore throat
    • Loss of appetite
    • Extreme fatigue or tiredness
    • Headache
    • Body aches
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Diarrhea


  • Before each service, our cleaning team will do a preparatory cleaning, disinfecting common touch points such as door handles, stair rails, bathroom sink handles, chairs, etc.
  • Please respect people’s differing levels of concern. Err on the side of caution so as not to add undue stress to someone who may already feel apprehensive about coming.
  • Please sanitize hands as you arrive. An automatic hand sanitizer station will be at each entrance and in the main foyer space. If you are unable to use hand sanitizer, please proceed to the washroom and wash your hands with soap and water for minimum of 20 seconds.
  • Try not to crowd the foyer space after the service. We encourage you to connect outside after the service for a chat in the sunshine!
