TRANSPORTATION TO CHS

Besides the bus services listed in the 'Relocation Handbook', there are special arrangements for those who may need a little more care & assistance to go to & back from the services. If you need a ride or would like to provide a ride, please contact Bruce Mok.

 

CAR PARKING

For those who are driving, if the SAJC car park is full, (especially the first Sunday of the month when our CC brothers will vacate the premise later), there are more parking spaces available at the HDB carpark (free on Sundays) just outside the SAJC gate. Drivers to CHS, please park your cars in proper lots. Please do not park your car indiscriminately as it will obstruct the bus turning radius.

 

USE OF CHS

Our request for the use of CHS up to 7.00 pm on Sundays has been generously approved and this will take effect from TODAY, 6th December 2015. There will be no change in class timings except for the bus service which will now depart from CHS at 6.40pm instead of 6.15pm. The extra 30 minutes allows the church more fellowship time as well as time for the ministry helpers to pack up.

 

HOUSEKEEPING AT CHS WORSHIP HALL

As an expression of gratitude to God for His grace and provision, let’s be responsible guests for the hospitality received from CHS by maintaining good housekeeping in:

a. removing worship bulletins and handouts after service

b. returning the pew bibles to its original position after use

 

SERVING THE BODY OF CHRIST

There are several EC ministry areas in need of volunteers.

a) With having one large service each Sunday, there is a serious need for volunteers to help worshippers by ushering. Please see Bruce Mok to find out more details and to volunteer for this very important ministry.

b) We need drivers to help ferry people with special needs to and from the services. The hope is to get enough drivers that we can rotate drivers so the drivers will not have to do it every week. Please sign up with the church office.

c) We need children's workers to serve in the Children’s Ministry. Please contact Pastor Bobby at 96494220 or Chuan Xin at 98531017.

WATCH NIGHT SERVICE

In view of our on-going church rebuilding project, our Watch Night Service (WNS) will be held at the International Baptist Church on Thursday, 31 December, from 8.00 to 9.30pm this year. 2015 has been an eventful year for the church. In September, we bade a temporary farewell to our home in Mattar Road and have been worshipping in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit since then. The year has also been a fruitful one for many of us, reminding us of the love and grace that our God has provided us. This year we would be putting together a faith sharing memo which will be shared with the GBC family on WNS. This memo will contain the written testimonies of members who have volunteered to share their walk to encourage us. The WNS Committee would like to invite members who are considering submitting personal testimonies to come meet us at the Welcome Table on level one on 15 and 22 November to find out more and register their interest. Thank you and we hope to see you on WNS.
