GLORY PRESBYTERIAN ENGLISH SERVICE PHYSICAL WORSHIP SERVICE
18 Dec 2020: Update from the Glory English Service Leadership
15 Nov marked our physical worship resumption in Church. Though it was limited to 50 worshippers, it was great joy welcoming back the congregants. The Lord is good, and His love endures forever.
On 14 Dec, the Singapore authorities has announced Phase 3 of re-opening from 28 Dec. Phase 3 will see the permitted group size for social gathering increase, including worship services which will increase to 250 worshippers in zones of 50 worshippers each. In turn, MCCY has cautioned and advised churches for congregation size to increase in progression, with no compromise to safe management practices.
In consideration of GPC’s worship halls capacity and personnel requirements, the leadership has decided to ease gradually during Phase 3 to allow careful adjustments on logistics, infrastructure and manpower planning.
Starting 10 Jan 2021, we are pleased to share the following:
1. Physical Worship English Service starts at 8.30 am in the Sanctuary. Worship Service duration remains around 60 mins with required safeguards in place.
2. Number of worshippers increases to 100 people for the physical worship service. Registration process for passes remains the same. Worshippers are welcome to attend the service weekly as long as passes are available. Trace Together – Safe Entry check-in via downloaded app or token are required. Using identity card is no longer acceptable.
3. For those who are unable to secure passes, the physical worship service will be live streamed at 8.30am. The recorded version of the physical service will also be made available on the Glory ES YouTube Channel from 10.30am for those who prefer to worship at home. The links can be found on the GPC website.
4. Pre-School and Primary Sunday School classes will be adjusted accordingly in view of the change in worship timing. Details will be communicated via the Sunday School Ministry.
We, Glorians have stayed united during this pandemic. Let’s continue to keep up our guard as the victory is not declared yet. It is likely we may not head back to the way things were before. But as one Church of Christ, we will entrust and seek the Lord’s will and purposes.
