May 21 Update

Governor Lamont announced this week that effective May 19 the State of Connecticut sector rules for reopening have been lifted, with certain exceptions to mask-wearing. So we are sharing what the new guidelines will look like for in-person services, gatherings and events at Valley Brook moving forward.

First, know that our commitment to focus on the following four areas as we gather in-person is unchanged. We shared these guiding principals last May when making plans to resume in-person worship:

  1. Safety – The first and most important focus is the health and well-being of our attenders, volunteers, and staff.
  2. Compliance – We will follow both state and federal guidelines.

  3. Inclusion – We want to regather in a way that considers and serves all people groups including at-risk groups and children.

  4. Unity – We want to partner with other churches in our region to regather in a way that supports and unifies the greater body of Christ.

We are relaxing our mask-wearing policies to align with the guidelines issued this week by the State of Connecticut (https://portal.ct.gov/DECD/Content/Coronavirus-Business-Recovery/Sector-Rules-for-Reopen).


Outdoor Services/Events 

  • Masks are not necessary. We fully support anyone that feels more comfortable wearing one.

Indoor Services/Events

  • Vaccinated individuals do not need to wear a mask.
  • Unvaccinated individuals are encouraged to continue to wear a mask per Connecticut guidelines.


Let's continue to work together to care for and love one another well, it’s core to our Valley Brook vision!
