On the COVID-19 situation

Sat, May 2, 2020

Dear BRMC family

In line with the latest guidelines across the various governing bodies, please note that the church office will be closed from Tue, Apr 7 to Mon, Jun 1, and all worship services continue to be suspended until further notice.

To remain connected to one another digitally during this period, we recommend using the following platforms to set up and host an online meeting with your small group, fellowship group or committee:

1. Zoom (click HERE for the user guide)

2. Skype (click HERE for the user guide)

In the meantime, all Pastors, Pastoral Team Staff, Admin and Support staff remain contactable via email or mobile phone. This is with the exception of urgent pastoral care or assistance that may require staff presence, with existing precautionary measures set in place.

Staff with roles that still require them to be onsite during the closure period will be given provisional allowance to fulfil any outstanding duties in the office but are to telecommute thereafter. As we deal with COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019), let us do our part to be socially responsible even as we trust God in this situation.

Even as we face uncertain circumstances, let us continue in an attitude of worship, turn our hearts to God as our anchor and trust that He will see us through.

 

As part of our efforts to continue caring for our church family this season, we will be holding an online dialogue session on coping with the anxieties and fears surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. This session will be facilitated by our Senior Counsellor, Mrs Chao-Koh Ai Jin. Click HERE for more information and to register.

The COVID-19 situation that we are currently in has resulted in extreme anxiety in the community. For the disadvantaged and vulnerable, the anxiety they feel is even greater. Distressed and low-income families may be facing more hardship when they earn less during this time or when they lose their livelihoods. Having little to no savings will likely cause them to experience more stress and go into debt.

Many of them rely on part-time and multiple jobs to make ends meet. However, they struggle between heeding advisories to stay home and having jobs that cannot be done remotely. These families are now forced to choose between bringing food to the table and keeping themselves and their families safe.

Methodist Welfare Services aims to raise $1.35m to provide financial assistance to 1,000 low-income families for one year. These funds will support them in meeting their basic needs, and having the resources to better prepare for and handle the direct impact brought about by COVID-19 on their lives.
