Dear Grace Baptist Church,
From October, we will be merging our worship services and gathering as one assembly for corporate worship on Sundays at 9am. The final Saturday service will be held on September 24. Please read more in this pastoral note from our elders.
Masks are no longer required for our worship service as of Monday, 29 Aug 2022. Mask wearing is now optional, and let us respect the freedom of each other in this matter. For many, this relaxation of the regulations means that from next weekend onwards, we can go without a mask as we sing and worship together! Worshippers are encouraged to continue exercising personal responsibility and care as we gather, especially if you are ill. Please employ your discretion on whether to continue wearing a mask or not to wear a mask.
Beloved, in the light of the improved public health situation and, more importantly, in obedience to God's instruction to gather and for the joy of gathering as a church, let us make an effort to assemble in person.
Thank God for His sustaining grace over the past two years! Let us announce what God has done with shouts of joy and encourage one another with our presence! See you all this weekend!
"Let them give thanks to the Lord for His faithful love and His wonderful works for all humanity. Let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving and announce His works with shouts of joy."
English Congregation Elders
1. What should I do if I want to attend worship services?
We encourage all members and worshippers to join us for our services in person. Registration for services is no longer required and TraceTogether/Safe Entry are currently not implemented for our services. Vaccination-Differentiated Safe Management Measures (VDS) are also no longer in place for the services.
Our in-person children's ministries (Sunday School and Nursery) have also resumed on Sundays. Find out more about our services here.
2. Can we conduct our ministry activities in church?
Non-congregational ministry activities of groups in the building can resume. Register formally with the church office ahead of time, and provide the capacity of the event for room allocation purposes.
3. How can I participate in church life?
We look forward to resuming more in-person activities, and we encourage members to participate in these too. Access to our Fellowship Hall on Level 3 is now available after each worship service, so we encourage worshippers to stay for a while to meet and chat with others.
During the week, there are many care groups and ministries in GBC that allow us to participate in body life. Through these gatherings, members can form closer relationships and reach out to one another, pray for and do spiritual good for one another. Read Pastor Eugene's note to the CG Leaders. Consider joining a care group if you are not in one by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
