Special Announcement
特別啟事

Effective March 15th, 2020
2020年3月15日起教會特別安排

In light of the rapidly developing situation around COVID-19, we realize that there is a lot of fear and uncertainty as we navigate the constantly changing stream of news and updates. This has led us, with information and recommendations provided by Ontario’s Chief Medical Office of Health to consider a number of proactive measures. We want to be wise, caring, responsible, and compassionate during this uncertain time.

To our knowledge to date, there is no reported Covid-19 case in our church. The reason to alter our practices, especially the way we gather, is implemented out of love and care for our congregation and for the well being of our Community. These are responsible actions as leaders of the church and as Canadian citizens.

Weekend Worship Services:

Beginning from Saturday, March 16th, the church building will be closed to public. We will move our Worship services online until further notice. Effective from Sunday March 22nd, online services will go live stream from the following times:

  • English Service every Sunday at  9:30 a.m.
  • Chinese Service every Sunday at 11:30 a.m.

Other Events, Small Groups:

  • Prayer meeting will continue online. In fact, we are increasing our prayer meetings to once a week starting next week at 9:00 p.m.
  • Fellowships will continue online. Details will be provided to fellowship members.
  • Sunday Awana will be suspended until further notice. We encourage our families to worship online together with your children and youth.
  • After school care will be suspended until further notice.

During this challenging time, it is important for God’s people to gather in a small group to support and encourage one another. Exercise caution. Seek creative ways to meet (e.g. online platform). Learn to worship, pray for yourselves, the church, and the world. Continue with your Bible studies. Connect with your pastors and fellowship leaders.

While we are making these changes and taking precautionary measures, we are not shutting down our mission or compromising our purpose and vision. We are simply using different ways to express ourselves as the church.

新型冠狀病毒疫情瞬息萬變,每逢瀏覽新聞,都叫人憂心忡忡。 教會參照加拿大衛生局的資訊及建議,考慮多項措施,防範未然,以策萬全﹔在這變幻的時代,盼望作出有智慧、負責任、有愛心的決策。

就教會目前所知,多倫多華人信義會沒有新型冠狀病毒的確診個案。由於對兄姊及整個社區的關愛和責任,我們的運作要作出更改,特別是聚會的方式。身為教會領袖、加拿大公民,這是負責任的行為。

週末崇拜聚會:

由三月十六日開始,教會設施暫停對外開放。崇拜轉為網上直播崇拜,直至另行通告;由三月二十二日開始,網上直播將在以下時段舉行:

  • 英語崇拜 - 週日早上九時三十分
  • 粵讈崇拜 - 週日早上十一時三十分

小組聚會、其他活動:

  • 祈禱會將以網上形式繼續舉行。從下週開始,祈禱會將增至每週一次:週二晚上九時正;
  • 團契聚會會以網上形式繼續舉行,詳細資料將於日內提供給各團友;
  • 基督青年軍服務將告暫停,直至另行通告,在此鼓勵家長與子女一同參與網上敬拜;
  • 課後托管服務將告暫停,直至另行通告。

抗疫期間,屬神子民以小組聚會,彼此支持,互勵互勉,至關重要。審慎同時,大家不妨靈活變通,保持會面(例如:善用網上平台);學習一同敬拜,為自己、神的家、世界禱告;繼續研讀聖經;並且與所屬牧者、團契領袖保持聯繫。

教會既沒有丟棄使命,也沒有改變異象和目標,只是使用不同途徑發揮基督群體的作用。我們當以真理為根基,定睛仰望耶穌。我們的決策,不可出於恐懼,卻要以愛為基礎。以耶穌為榜樣,愛人如己,照顧周圍的弱者。
