About service bulletin QR codes

Point a QR code app on your smartphone or tablet at the QR code posted at your worship venue – it would look like the poster below – and the bulletin for that service will be downloaded to your device.

Bulletin QR Code FAQ

1. What is a QR code?

Think of it as a smart shortcut to a place online, eg, a page on our church website, or, a PDF stored there. 

2. How do I use a QR code?

Download an app for it on your phone or tablet. Fire up the app and point your device camera at the QR code. That’s it. The app will automatically work the moment it reads the QR code, and will start downloading the bulletin to your device on its own.

3. Are all the bulletin QR codes the same?

They are all different. Each QR code is designed to automatically download the bulletin for the service for that day at the worship venue you are at.
But the QR code printed in your bulletin is special – it leads to a page on our church website where all the bulletins available online are stored.

4. Why is the text in the bulletin PDF small?

It’s pretty much what you have in the printed version. The digital version works better on phones with large screens, or tablets. We are working on better legibility. Stay tuned.

5. Why doesn’t the bulletin download and display automatically on my phone?

You may be using an Android device, and some models are designed to work that way for higher security. Ask a more IT-savvy person for help. Usually a few more steps are involved. Learn those steps, and you are all set.

6. Is the QR code method the only way to download a digital bulletin?

No, you can get bulletins directly from our church website. Get the bulletin you want in the BULLETINS section under the RESOURCES tab. Or, just click here.

Barker Road Methodist Church Lost & Found Policy

Any visitor, friend or member of Barker Road Methodist Church (“BRMC”) may deliver any found items which are believed to have been lost, or report the loss of belongings, to the Level 4 BRMC Church office at the Methodist Centre, 48 Barker Road, Singapore 309917.

Reasonable efforts will be made to assist in the recovery of any reported lost item. However, BRMC will not be responsible for the loss of, or damage caused to, any belongings or items.

Generally, lost and found items will be kept for a period of six (6) months after which, if left unclaimed, BRMC may at their sole discretion donate, retain, realize or dispose of the items as they deem fit. However, BRMC may at any time take such action before the expiry of this period, if BRMC in their sole discretion consider the keeping of any items to be impractical or inconvenient e.g. goods which are perishable or bulky and cause obstruction.

All queries relating to the loss of belongings should therefore be made immediately to facilitate recovery.

NCCS Statement On Pink Dot

25 June 2014

LETTER TO MEMBER CHURCHES OF THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF CHURCHES OF SINGAPORE

Dear Members

The current discourse on LGBT prompted by the intention of the LGBT community to hold a Pink Dot picnic on 28 June 2014 has generated strong reactions among Singaporeans, including Christians.

In the interest of clearing up the matter concerning human sexuality for members of the Christian public who may be confused, the NCCS would like to reiterate the Christian view that homosexual or bi-sexual practices are contrary to the teaching of the Bible. The Council holds that the only sexual relationship sanctioned by God and given as a gift from God is that between a male and a female within the bounds of a monogamous marriage.

The Council also wishes to state that while it does not condone homosexual or bi-sexual practices, it also does not condemn those who are struggling with their gender identity and sexual orientation.

The Council therefore urges members of the Christian community to always act with grace and restraint should they engage with the LGBT community over the coming event.

President                                                                    General Secretary
