The Self Assessment Form is obligatory and to be completed every time someone will be attending the weekly in-person worship celebration. This online form will only be accessible for attendees every Sunday starting from 8:00 AM until 10:00 AM. Anyone who won’t be able to access the online form should come to the Centre at least 20 minutes before the start of the celebration at 10:30am.
