Inclement Weather Policy
Steps to take if you think ARBC might be closed:
Although Church closure is very rare at Avenue Road, there are occasions when this is necessary for the safety of ARBC members, adherents, and partners. Bearing in mind a portion of our membership commutes to ARBC across town and the 401, we strive to see our guests able to arrive safely. Therefore, Avenue Road Baptist Church has implemented an Inclement Weather Policy, which outlines what to do if you think adverse weather conditions may have affected programs at ARBC.
Inclement Weather Policy: ARBC Members & Adherents.
In the event of inclement weather, the chair of the deacons’ board (or closest designate) and the Sr. pastor will jointly assess the hazardousness of road conditions by 7 a.m. of a Sunday morning, or at the earliest opportunity during the week. If deemed necessary, ARBC will be closed for all activities for that day and evening. The decision for church closure will be communicated to members and adherents in the following manner:
- Chair of Deacons and
- Call in to the Church Office automated attendant for further information
- Check the church website as of 8 a.m.

Inclement Weather Policy: Third-Party-Groups and Ministry Partners.
In the event of inclement weather, third-party groups and ministry partners who use ARBC facilities will determine the availability of programs that day in accordance with their own Inclement Weather Policy at their own risk and discretion.Although we rely on our maintenance provider to clear snow from the property, these services may not necessarily be available, or available in a timely fashion for 3rd-party groups and ministry partners in the event of church closure.
