CHANGES TO MEETINGS & SERVICES (15 May, LATEST)
There will be no onsite services on the weekends of 15 & 16 May and 22 & 23 May 2021. Both the Parochial Church Council (PCC) Commissioning Service (Sunday, 16 May) and the Confirmation Service (Sunday, 23 May) have been deferred to later dates.
Cell meetings, Bible classes, etc. will all be conducted online until further notice. Contact your Zone Pastors or call 9135 7934 (office hours only) for assistance.
CHANGES TO ONSITE & ONLINE SERVICES (8 May)
Under national requirements for the Heightened Alert for Phase Three, from 8 May through 30 May 2021, enhanced precautionary measures will be imposed on religious activities, including a decrease in capacity for congregational and other worship services from 250 persons to 100 persons. Subject to safe management measures and the safe capacity of the premises, worshippers can participate in worship services in groups of no more than 5 persons (a decrease from 8 persons).
At SJSM, starting from Sat, 8 May, ticketed service attendance will consequently be limited to 100 pax at SES, E1 and E2, seated in groups of 5 persons. Singing is no longer allowed in the congregation.
Due to the new safe management seating limits, all tickets for this weekend's services that were booked under the previous seating arrangements will need to be canceled. Tickets for this weekend’s services will need to be re-booked at the lower capacity limits.
For everyone’s safety, entry to church using TraceTogether SafeEntry token or app will be made compulsory as mandated by the Government. You can check-in for your children or parents through the phone app “Group check-in” feature if needed.
As many may not be able to attend service onsite, we will start live-streaming of SES from Sat, 8 May. This is in addition to the livestream of E2 service on Sunday. Members may join the live streams of either SES or E2 at this page or at sjsm.online.church.
Preschool and JC classes will be fully online at 8.45am and 10am respectively on Sundays. Please refer to the Junior Church webpage for more details. Teen Encounter (11-14 yr olds) will continue on-site with controlled numbers via ticketing as usual.
If you have difficulties or last-minute ticketing enquiries, please call or text 9135 7934 (office hours only). Visit the ticketing page (click below) for full details.
TRACETOGETHER-ONLY SAFEENTRY FROM 17 MAY
In accordance with the national mandate, SJSM is implementing TraceTogether-Only SafeEntry (where the TraceTogether App or Token is required for SafeEntry check-ins) from 17 May 2021. SJSMers are encouraged to please switch to using TraceTogether (TT) tokens or the TT app for check-in as soon as possible. Group check-in for children and/or elderly parents via the TT app is allowed. SafeEntry Gateway Boxes now facilitate faster clearance using TT tokens or the TT app. Instructional signs and helpers will be on hand to guide you through this.
Note: No other IDs or scanning apps will be supported for entry from 17 May 2021. Members who currently use their NRIC, driver's licence, work permit, SingPass, or other methods should aim to obtain a TT token or TT mobile app as soon as possible.
TraceTogether-only check-ins will be implemented from 17 May 2021 onwards. Other methods of SafeEntry when entering the church, such as by scanning NRIC, will only be supported till 30 May 202. If you are not already using the app or token, please make arrangements to download the app or collect the token when available.
