Greetings in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
We thank God for the opportunity to connect with you and share the gospel via our online platforms for the past 3 months. Despite the challenges faced due to COVID-19, we are grateful to God for His protection. Also, we are grateful for the opportunity to fellowship and worship together again.
As we prepare to resume our in-person services, we are taking all the necessary precautions to adhere to the guidelines presented by the Ministry of Health. This includes hosting large gatherings in spaces without central air conditioning systems, practicing physical distancing, wearing of masks, hand washing and frequent sanitization practices to prohibit the spread of the virus.
To ensure that we are able to fellowship and maintain these guidelines, we have decided to host our services at The Oasis Garden Terrace at 101 Circular Road, Mon Repos from Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st June 2020 at 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
Members will have 3 options to engage in our services:
Assemble at the Oasis where comfortable seating would be provided. Physical distancing will be in effect.
Assemble at the Oasis and remain in your vehicle for the duration of the service. The stage will be positioned to allow persons to view the service.
Continue to connect via our online services. We encourage the elderly and persons with health conditions that make them more vulnerable to contracting the virus to choose this option as guided by the Ministry of Health.
We understand that persons have varying circumstances and we encourage you to choose the option that best suits your needs. We ask that you stay connected and reach out to one of our pastors, elders or cluster leaders if you have questions or if you are in need of additional prayer and support.
As we facilitate our services at the Oasis temporarily, we are taking this time to do much needed renovations to our church building to ensure we meet health and safety standards.
I encourage you to be faithful in all things concerning the work of God.
Looking forward to seeing you.
God richly bless you and your household.
In His service
