During Pastor Will’s Sabbatical, Deacons and other brothers will take turns in giving sermons

NEW VACCINE PASS REQUIREMENTS

The Hong Kong Government made an announcement on September 8 for The major changes are:

the Vaccine Pass is now extended to cover children aged from 5 to 11, 

the grace period for person aged 12 or above to receive

the third dose after the second dose will be shortened from the original six months to five months. 

The new Vaccine Pass requirements will come into effect on September 30. 

Parents of children under the above category are therefore encouraged to take all necessary actions

to ensure that the children can still enter the church premises after this date under the Hong Kong law.



OBSERVANCE OF ALL HEALTH & SAFETY REQUIRMENTS

The Health Department's complete Press Release on the new changes to the Vaccine Pass can be accessed through the following link:

https://www.info.gov.hk/gia/general/202209/08/P2022090800481.htm?fontSize=1

We also would like to call on all attendees to observe proper health safety requirements: 

1. Using Leave Home Safe app to verify the validity of vaccine pass

2. Checking of body temperature at the church entrance

3. Proper wearing of surgical mask at all times (ASTM level II or above or equivalent) except during Holy Communion

4. Testing for Covid or stay home when in doubt of your body health condition

5. Report to the church office and health authority if you have been tested positive for Covid.

Doing so helps safeguard the health of others in the church family, especially those who are weak or senior.

This also minimizes impact to the whole church in case you carry the Covid virus without knowledge.
