Precautionary Measures Taken

Safe Distancing Measures for On-Site Church Service

As each family’s health and situation is different, deciding to attend on-site service is your personal / family choice. We encourage you to discuss this prayerfully with your family. As a church, your spiritual health is important to us. So too is your physical and emotional health.  Below are the measures that have been thought through and put in place:

  • MCCY’s approval of our safe management plan
  • Mandatory Safe Entry & Trace Together App
  • Congregational singing during worship services (with masks on) will be allowed
  • No bulletins or offering bags to be passed around

Precautionary Measures

  • Please adhere to government advisories for those on Home Recovery Programme (HRP).
  • Continue to be prudent and socially responsible in all your personal hygiene and health measures such as keeping to safety measures in church premises, wearing your mask, and having rigorous hand hygiene.
  • Please remain in your own centres and book tickets for in-person services at only ONE centre to minimise risk of cross-centre infections.

Please Worship at Online Service if:

  • You have close contact with people on quarantine, Stay-Home-Notice, or recent travellers.
  • You are unwell in any way or exhibit fever or flu-like symptoms.
  • You are in a vulnerable group or have pre-existing medical conditions.
