1. Worship Services

1.1  What are the different Worship Services with effect from 30 January 2022?

Traditional English Service at 8:15am, Contemporary English Service at 10:45am and Mandarin Service at 9:30am:

  • ​More than 50 pax and open to worshippers who are:

    • Full vaccinated (refer to 1.3); or

    • Exempted from Vaccination-Differentiated Safe Management Measures (VDS) (refer 1.4)

This is in line with MOH's guidelines on VDS.

1.2  I am unvaccinated. Can I still attend service?


Un​fortunately, unvaccinated worshippers will no longer be able to attend on-site services unless they are exempted from VDS (refer to 1.4)

The CS livestream is still available if you are unable to attend on-site services.

 

We deeply empathize with you and those who are unable to attend our worship services on-site.  We are engaging the authorities on how to extend the ministries of our church to you.
 

1.3  What does “Fully Vaccinated” refer to?


A worshipper is considered fully vaccinated if he/ she has received the full regimen of Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty, Moderna or WHO EUL vaccines (e.g., AstraZeneca, Janssen, Sinopharm, Sinovac), with an additional 14 days for the vaccine to be fully effective.

From 14 Feb 2022, those aged 18 and above will have to take a booster shot within 270 days of completing their primary vaccination series in order to maintain a fully vaccinated status against COVID-19.


1.4  Who are exempted from Vaccination-Differentiated Safe Management Measures (VDS)?

  • Worshippers who have recovered from COVID-19 within the last 180 days

  • Worshippers who are certified to be medically ineligible for all COVID-19 vaccines under The National Vaccination Programme.
