WE ARE RE-GATHERING
Hey church, we’ve got some fantastic news for you!
Starting the weekend of 04–05 July, we will be re-opening our doors for physical church services.
However, things will likely look and feel a bit different as we progressively normalise… at least for a good while. To keep everyone safe and to ensure that we abide by government regulations and recommendations, here’s what you’ll need to take note of:
In-Person / Online Services
- IN-PERSON SERVICES
Physical services for our main English services will re-open with limited capacity at the following locations and timings.
Due to the limitations on the number of attendees in Phase 2, entrance into physical church will strictly be on a ticketed basis. Walk-ins will not be allowed. Tickets will be released every Friday at 12pm via this link. Once the quota of tickets have been fully taken up, registration will close. For a step-by-step guide on how to book your tickets, please click here.
As tickets are limited, please do not book them unless you’re able to attend. Ticket cancellations should be done at least 24hours prior to a service via email to email@example.com. Repeated absent bookings will be disallowed from future bookings. Don’t worry if you can’t get tickets on a weekend, you can always try again the following week. In the meantime, do continue tuning in to our online services!
- CORNERSTONE KATONG
Sat 5pm I Sun 9am & 11amCHILDREN’S CHURCH
Children’s Church will be resuming services for kids between 7–12 year olds at the following locations/timings:
Katong: Sat 5pm I Sun 11am
To facilitate a smooth check-in, please come 15min before service starts.
You will be required to indicate in a waiver upon booking to declare that you’re physically well and are not in a high-risk group or situation. Those who are unwell or experiencing respiratory/flu symptoms are reminded to stay at home and avoid public contact.
- SAFE-ENTRY CHECK IN AND OUT
Please get your mobile devices or ID ready, as you will be required to scan or submit your personal identification using the Safe-Entry Check-In and Out system when you enter or exit the facilities.
Kindly don your mask at all times when in the service or when moving around the premises.
- PERSONAL HYGIENE / DISINFECTION
Hand sanitisers will be made available throughout the facilities for your use.
We encourage you to maintain a high level of personal cleanliness and hygiene with regular hand-washing.
During intervals between services, areas with high touch-points will be disinfected before the next service.
- SAFE MANAGEMENT AMBASSADORS
Our Safe Management Ambassadors will be on-site to assist you and ensure that safety measures are all in place.
- SAFE-DISTANCING / CROSS SERVICE CONTACT
In addition to spaced seating, attendees are reminded to observe the 1m safe-distancing guideline at all times.
Also, if you’re attending an earlier service, do avoid coming into contact with those attending later.
What to Expect for On-site Services
- SERVICE DURATION / PROGRAMME
Services will be momentarily shortened to just 45min to allow for a 1-hour turnaround time before the next service begins.
The worship segment will be pre-recorded and worshippers will be encouraged to convey your heartfelt worship using other forms of expressions rather than singing out loud.
For the time being, Communion will only be conducted during our online services on a fortnightly basis.
To facilitate the giving of tithe and offerings, a giving box will be situated at the side of the auditorium. Congregants can give at the end of the service upon exit or via our online giving platforms (encouraged for contactless transactions).
- PRAYER / MINISTRY
There will be no on-site prayer and ministry for now. If you require prayer, our Online Prayer Teams will be available to minister to you. Please get in touch with us at www.bit.ly/csccpray.
- GUEST CENTRAL / INFO CENTRAL
Guest Central will be closed for now. Our Info Central will be open at the foyer if you require any assistance or information.
- CRECHÉ / NURSING FACILITIES
Creché and Nursing Facilities will be closed until a later time.
Physical bulletins will be discontinued. Please download and use the Churchscribe App for your online bulletin updates.
- SIGN LANGUAGE TRANSLATION
There will be no sign language translation for our on-site services. Special arrangements have been made for our online audience who require sign language translation. For more info, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other Aspects of Church
- CELL COMMUNITY
Online meetings have been a very helpful channel for Cell members to connect with the community during this period. This is especially so for those with young children, or those who are overseas or are more vulnerable. As such, we encourage the continued use of online platforms to stay connected.
Cell communities are encouraged to gather in homes in compliance with regulations on social gatherings, taking into consideration safe-distancing and precautionary measures.
Water Baptism & our Training and Equipping classes will be conducted online. For more info, visit www.cscc.org.sg/classes.
- HIGHER GROUNDS CAFÉ / FAITHWORKS BOOKSTORE
Higher Grounds Café will remain closed till further notice. Faithworks Bookstore is now open. For more info on operating hours, visit faithworks.com.sg.
- CHURCH OFFICE OPERATIONS
We’ll be gradually resuming some of our physical office operations from 30 June. Working from home will still be in order for most of our pastors and staff.
On-site meetups will be based on a need basis and via appointment only. You may contact us at 6344 4733 during office hours, or email@example.com should you need to be in touch.
