Coronavirus Update

Individual Church Reopening Details

Our churches are publishing their reopening dates (see below), but these dates are different for each church, due to differences in facilities and congregation size. Some churches will be reopening earlier than others. In addition, some churches will be placing restrictions on how many people can attend.

If your local Sojourn church is not reopening as soon as you would like, you might be considering visiting another Sojourn church while you wait. That's understandable - we're all eager to gather again! However, we're concerned this may overwhelm the earliest-opening churches with more numbers than they are expecting. So instead, please stay with your current Sojourn church and wait for it to reopen.
