在 2月25日，新闻报道我们的教会通过我们的会友——病例编号83 和 91，也与另一个感染群——神召会恩典堂，有关联。我们因这个发现倍感意外，且为着无意间所带给我们主内肢体的惊慌与不便而深表歉意。在此，我们也要澄清，病例编号83 和 91 自 1月21日至 2月23日都没有参加我们的聚会。换言之，他们在我们教会全面清毒后，就没有在我们当中了，直到他们被卫生部的病毒检验证实为阴性，他们才重新恢复聚会。
Advisory note on COVID-19
(last update on 25 Mar 20)
Suspension of all mass gatherings with effect from 26 Mar, 2359 hours
In line with the latest government directives to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we will suspend all our mass gatherings from 26 Mar, 2359 hours onwards. Our Sunday worship service will be live-streamed from 29 Mar till further notice. Brothers and sisters can worship online by watching the live-stream. The actual attendance in church will not be more than 10 persons. As all church mass gatherings will be cancelled, brethren can meet in small groups. However, each small group gathering must not have more than 10 persons. In order to ensure the wellbeing of our brethren, we still encourage anyone who is feeling unwell to stay at home and refrain from attending any meeting.
The Passing of Case 90
We received the saddening news on 21 Mar that our member, Case 90, has gone home to the Lord. The whole church grieves together with the family of the deceased. On 22 Mar, the family of Case 90 held a simple funeral wake for her, and cremated her. The church also collected bereavement tokens from our members, to comfort the family. Although we mourn the passing of our sister, we also believe that our Lord Jesus surpasses all diseases and death. Case 90 is now healed from her physical illness and is with the Lord at a place without sickness, tears, sorrow and pain <Rev 21:4>.
As the wellbeing of the deceased's family is our utmost concern now, the church would like to urge every member to pray earnestly for the family of Case 90. We pray that they would find strength and comfort to go through this grieving process, and find peace in our Lord Jesus' love.
If any of our church members needs spiritual counselling in dealing with the grief, anxiety and fears arising from the COVID-19 situation, please approach your cell group leader or any of the church leaders.
We would also like to clarify that Case 90 did not come to church on 19 Jan (the day that the Wuhan couple came). Beyond that date, Case 90 had only been to church on 29 Jan and 5 Feb to attend two small group gatherings. In these two gatherings, she had no contact with any of the other 9 confirmed cases that were linked to our church cluster.
Cases 138 and 151
The news reports on 7 Mar and 9 Mar had mentioned respectively that Cases 138 and 151 were also related to our church. To allay any concerns, we would like to clarify that Cases 138 and 151 are not members of our church, but relatives of our church members. In actual fact, Cases 138 and 151 do not attend our church meetings.
Cases 83 and 91
On 25 Feb, it was reported on the news that our church was linked to the cluster at Grace Assembly of God (AOG) through our members, Cases 83 and 91. We were astonished by the discovery and apologise for any unintended panic and inconvenience caused to our fellow brethren in Grace AOG. We would also like to clarify that both Cases 83 and 91 had not visited our church since 21 Jan to 23 Feb. As such, after our church had been disinfected, they had not attended any meetings. It was only after they were tested negative for the coronavirus that they resumed attendance.
