Cells and other activities
Cell Groups - Three arrangements while we are on Dorscon Orange: No cell meetings (for a few cells with mostly senior members), Full Cell meetings (with necessary precautions) or Partial Cell meetings (with some gathering while others connect through Zoom video call). Zone pastors and Cell Pastors will offer whatever assistance they can to Cell Leaders, and Cell Leaders are to decide what works best for the Cell. We remind all those of you with family or close contacts returning from overseas recently, or who have yourselves just returned to Singapore, to connect to cell meetings via Zoom even if you feel well.
Screenings Before Entering Church Premises
More rigorous screening of visitors and members prior to allowing entry to church grounds will be conducted to facilitate contact tracing should the need arise. Designated screening stations will be set up for health declarations and temperature checks at the covered car park. Entry to church grounds will be via East Gate (Dover Crescent) only. Please note that the Chapel Gate will no longer be opened during the week or weekends until further notice. The opening times are:
