Updated 15 Feb 2020:

 

SJSM continues to pray against the spread of the COVID-19, while implementing precautions in step with measures issued by the government.

 

Please note the following which have been implemented with immediate effect:

 

a.  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. Members attending services or meetings are advised to come at least half an hour earlier to allow time for screening.

 

Entry to church grounds will be controlled via Chapel Gate (Dover Ave) and East Gate (Dover Crescent). Directional signs will guide visitors to screening stations at level 2 near Chapel Gate and another at the covered carpark before they proceed to services or meetings. To facilitate the screening process, there will be changes to gate opening times, as follows:

 

Chapel Gate

East Gate

Saturdays

2pm - 10:30pm

6:30am - 10:30pm

Sundays

7am - 10:30pm

6:30am - 10:30pm

Weekdays

Closed

6:30am - 10:30pm

As half of the covered carpark will be designated as a screening area, we seek members’ understanding that any available lots will be reserved for the elderly or those requiring handicap access into the premises. The area will remain sectioned off until further notice.

 

b. Facebook Livestream of SES

To facilitate participation in our worship services, we will begin streaming Saturday evening services (5pm) on Facebook Live. Those who are unwell or unable to attend services are encouraged to tune in to our livestream via our Facebook page - www.facebook.com/SJSMchurch.  [Update: there will be an additional Livestream on 16 Feb, 11:15am, of the E2 service.]

 

c. Event Cancellations

Please note that the following programmes have been suspended until further notice:

• Kopistop on Saturdays and Kopistop outings

• BASC ice cream truck event in March

• Art & Craft on Thursdays

• Befrienders visitations on Sunday

• Basic English conversational classes (Mar-May)

• Kampung Gathering (29 Feb)

• Alpha Course (Feb - Apr)

 

d. Holy Communion

As a gentle reminder, do note that in our earlier advisory (8 Feb), guidelines were provided for the administration and receiving of Holy Communion. Do read these guidelines before participating in Holy Communion this weekend.

 

In addition to the above, we would like to remind SJSMers to remain vigilant and adopt good personal hygiene practices even as you continue to attend worship services. If you are unwell, do be socially responsible and follow the precautions recommended by the Ministry of Health (MOH).

 

May the Lord bless us with His peace as we continue to trust in Him.
