Updates on COVID-19 from Glory Presbyterian Church

Covid-19 Safe Management Update

30 July 2021

In coordination with the GPC Chinese Service, the GPC English Service has been preparing for the eventual easing of Covid-19 measures in Phase 3. This would allow for church attendance to potentially increase to 250 pax for those who have been vaccinated and unvaccinated but cleared pre- event testing (PET). Concurrently, we are also considering opening another service without PET requirements in Phase 3, for a capacity of 50 pax, or as per restrictions defined. Our plans are to be executed in line with government regulations.

As preparation for readiness to expand our physical worship services, more willing workers will be needed. Please reach out to church office if you have the desire to serve God and His church. 

While we are anxious to return to physical church and return to our community, the current situation remains fluid and is constantly evolving.  We need to patiently trust in the Lord’s timing and continue to pray for wisdom for the church leaders.

Phase 2 (heightened alert) measures from 22 July to 18 August

21 July 2021

Our Government has just announced in returning to Phase 2 (heightened alert). Measures will be retightened from *22 Jul to 18 Aug*. The need to ensure hospital capacity is not compromised, the number of unvaccinated seniors (age 60 and above) and the extent of community exposure were key considerations for the difficult decision. GPC ES understands the challenges and supports in unity against the “formidable foe”. 

Sunday Physical Worship Service at 8.30am for 50 pax will *CONTINUE*  but will be in line with Phase 2 (heightened alert) measures. Key difference will be live singing is not permitted and therefore recorded hymns and praises will be played instead. Seniors who are *NOT* vaccinated (please refer to guidelines defined in www.gov.sg) are advised to attend worship service online for their health interests. 

All non-congregational classes and activities are to be conducted online with immediate effect.
