The Second Service at 10:15am will be a VTE Service, meaning worshippers will need to be Vaccinated or Tested (at authorized clinics) or Exempted. We will start with having 2 zones of 90 people for our Second Service and prayerfully adjust the capacity in due course. Children below 12 are considered exempted and can attend the Second Service subject to a maximum cap of 20% of the service attendees.
MKC (Children’s ministry) will be conducted over zoom starting from (3 Oct), till further notice.
