Resumption of Public Services and Group Activities
The House of Bishops has announced the arrangements for the resumption of public worship services and group activities in Hong Kong.
Please especially note the following requirements as laid out by the Church, the School and the Government:
All staff and attendees of a church should comply with the Vaccine Pass requirements.
Churches should have arrangements in place to fulfill the duties imposed on them by the Vaccine Pass Direction; in particular, churches have the responsibility to check an attendee’s COVID-19 vaccination record or medical exemption certificate.
The number of worshippers in a church should be limited to 50% of the number of persons that may normally be accommodated. Should the need arise, a church may organize extra service(s), and/or make use of its parish hall or an activity room of a bigger size to live stream the service taking place in the church, and arrange for the Body of Christ to be distributed in the same place by the clergy during Communion. In addition, webcast of the service can be provided to allow those who cannot be present at church to participate in the service and to receive Spiritual Communion.
Not more than 4 attendees should sit together, and attendees should maintain appropriate physical distancing.
Existing infection prevention practices should continue to be followed. For more guidance, the document Health Advice on Prevention of COVID-19 for Religious Assembly (Interim), issued by the Centre for Health Protection, can be consulted.
Servers Team Recruitment
We are now recruiting servers. Also sometimes known as the “acolyte”, an altar server is a lay assistant to a member of the clergy during the Eucharist and other services. An altar server attends to supporting tasks at the altar such as fetching and carrying, thurifying, ringing the altar bell, helping bring up the gifts, brings up the book, among other things. While the function of the altar server is sometimes associated with children, it is also carried out by people of any age or gender. For those who are baptised or even confirmed and aged 10 or above, if you want to join this sacred job around the altar, please contact Lauren Fong or Kelvin Lau.
Choir Members Recruitment
The Chapel Choir always welcomes new members who love singing with commitment in serving God. We practice regularly on Sunday at 9am before joining the 10:30am service. Interested individuals are welcome to contact our Choir-mistress Ms Shirley Yeung (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Our fun-filled Sunday School Classes start at 10:30am on every Sunday. Kids aged 3 to 12 are most welcome to join. Parents who are interested, please get in touch with Juanna Yin (email@example.com).

The Daily Word
“Nothing can separate us from God’s love! Through the Word of God, we can connect with each other in spirit.” —— Archbishop Andrew Chan
Beginning from 17 February this year, our Provincial clergy prepares a programme called “The Daily Word” for all brothers and sisters in the early morning every day. The programme will include spiritual reading and pastoral sharing, accompanied by meditative paintings and contemplative music. This is to help us keep six or seven minutes of silence each day, from Monday to Saturday, whereupon we can encounter God, receive nourishment through the Word of God which will strengthen us so that we may rise up to meet the challenges of our daily life.
“Looking forward to partaking in our spiritual sharing online.”
