Whenever alcohol is served, appealing non-alcoholic alternatives must always be offered with equal prominence and accessibility. The serving of alcoholic beverages at church events should not be publicized as an attraction of the event, e.g. “wine and cheese reception,” “cocktail party,” and “beer and wine tasting.” Ministries inside or outside of congregations will make certain that alcohol consumption is not the focus of the ministry and that drinking alcohol is not an exclusively normative activity. Food must be served when alcohol is present. The groups or organizations sponsoring the activity or event at which alcoholic beverages are served must have permission from the clergy or the vestry. Such groups or organizations must also assume responsibility for those persons who might become intoxicated and must provide alternative transportation for anyone whose capacity to drive may be impaired. Consulting with liability insurance carriers is advised.
- Alcoholic beverages shall be limited to wine, champagne, and beer.
- In the presence of alcoholic beverages, food and alternative non-alcoholic beverages must be an offering in an attractive and inviting manner. Each beverage will be clearly labeled.
- At all times, the organization or individual will be in compliance with the Commonwealth of Virginia law regarding consumption and serving of alcohol.
- Anyone serving alcohol must obtain a Virginia alcohol permit for wine, champagne, and beer.
