FACILITY MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE (FMC):

  1. A) Etiquette for usage of church facilities

Last week, two incidents happened on the church premise. Firstly, the electro-magnetic lock for the glass door at Level 1 Lift Lobby was damaged by someone who tried to gain access into the building.  Secondly, the carpark roller shutter was not working, only to be found that someone had switched off the main circuit breaker. We urge all users of the church facilities to be responsible and considerate so that everyone can enjoy using them and unnecessary expenses will not be incurred on rectification.

  1. B) Housekeeping

We found many items that are not properly stored and left lying around in the church premise. Some of these are personal items and others are obstructing access. Besides being unsightly, they are safety and fire hazards. We request owners of these items to either store or remove them by 13 May, 2018 (Sunday) after which they will be disposed of by the cleaners. Thank you for your cooperation.
