Trinity Bible Chapel on Sunday, April 18
Trinity Bible Chapel once again had a full parking lot on Sunday.
The property's popularity came following a recent hearing in the Superior Court of Ontario, where the Attorney General asked to have the church’s doors locked. That injunction was denied, as Justice Paul Sweeny ruled on Friday that while the church’s conduct may “well be in breach of the present limit of 15 per cent occupancy,” he was notprepared to grant an interim injunction given the respondents' interpretation of lockdown measures. That issue has been adjourned until May 11.
The judge did issue a court order compelling Trinity to follow current and future guidelines. That means only 15 per cent capacity is allowed Sunday, then only 10 people when new restrictions come into effect.
After gathering for in-person services last weekend, Trinity Bible Chapel is facing additional charges – including two Part Three summons issued on Thursday following two straight weekends of holding in-person gatherings. The chapel was also charged earlier in the month for holding in-persongatherings on Easter Sunday.
