Advisory on COVID-19

3 Oct 2020: Advisory from the Glory English Service Leadership


We are happy to receive news that effective 3 October 2020, our government permits congregational and other worship services to resume with safeguards in place for no more than 100 worshippers per service.


Together with the Chinese Service leadership, we are working on the plans for in-person gathering of congregants for worship services in the month of Nov 2020, subject to the authority’s safe management approval. 


The resumption of church activities will be planned in a gradual manner to ensure that safe management remains as top priority with consideration that some may not be ready to return to church.


As we enter into the new normal , we may not be able to head back to the way things were before. Let us remain faithful and seek the Lord’s will and purposes. Continue to pray for our leaders and church community as the church gears up for reopening. 


Stay tuned for more updates and details in the coming weeks.


Shalom !

Advisory on COVID-19

26 Jun 2020: Advisory from the Glory English Service Leadership

 

Phase 2 which commenced from 19 Jun 2020 is about SAFE TRANSITION. The leadership has decided to adopt a cautious approach in resuming church activities even though the government has provided guidelines for the resumption of religious activities.

 

Over the next couple of weeks, we will observe how Phase 2 has impacted on the larger community while putting in place Safe Management Practices that will allow the church to progressively resume worship services and activities.

 

We understand some are anxious to gather soon, while some may take a while before feeling comfortable returning for corporate worship. We will proactively communicate and update the safety measures and precautions put in place as we gear up readiness for church activities. We seek your continued understanding and prayer support for our leaders and the church community.

 

We may not be heading back to the way things used to be, but the purpose and mission of the church do not dissipate. We go forward even though we are scattered. Please do not hesitate to contact us for any support or enquiries on how to stay connected and engaged in church activities.

 

May the God of peace be with you all, Amen!
Glory English Service Leadership

GPC ES will continue with live streaming worship service beyond Apr 05, 2020. Sunday School classes, and all other physical activities and gatherings in the church premises remain suspended till further notice.

While buildings are being closed, churches are not being closed.

 

We are the CHURCH !
