Serving Our Community During The Coronavirus Outbreak
As our nation deals with the outbreak of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), we as a church remain committed to giving our support to the community in practical ways, while we continue to pray for the situation.
Our overseas outreach programmes also carry on with the help of our partners on the ground to support impoverished and vulnerable communities. Read more here.
May–June 2020 — Project Good News
Many volunteers and some families from our church are writing and mailing more than 600 personalised cards full of drawings, stickers and encouragement to bring cheer to the elderly at local nursing homes and senior activity centres and show them that they’re not forgotten. We are also praying for them, especially during this season where they may feel isolated and lonely.
28 April–11 May 2020 — Blood Donation Initiative
Due to the COVID-19 situation, blood stocks in Singapore are running low and blood banks had made appeals for donors.
Over the span of two weeks, our volunteers made individual trips to the local blood banks and community blood donation drives to donate their blood. We’re thankful for this opportunity to be a blessing to the patients in need, and we continue to uphold them in prayer.
4–8 May 2020―Fei Yue Senior Activity Centre
Over 800 food packs prepared and delivered with love. We’re glad we get to play a part in serving the underprivileged elderly in our community and letting them know that we care.
30 Apr―The Food Bank
In challenging times like this, we’re glad to be able to continue supporting The Food Bank, a local charity, by packing food rations for the vulnerable in our community.
20 April 2020—Blessing Migrant Workers
The migrant workers leave their homes to build our nation. During this difficult time, we are privileged to partner with various organisations and agencies who reach out to the workers to meet their basic needs. We have also given to organisations to provide shelter for the homeless Malaysian workers stranded here in Singapore.
3 April 2020—Alexandra Hospital
Grateful for the opportunity to bring gift packages of refreshments and chocolates to show love and support for the healthcare team at Alexandra Hospital before the circuit breaker measures kick in!
21 March 2020—The Food Bank Fresh Food Delivery
Many elderly are playing their part by staying at home during this season, and we want to show them our love and support. University students from our Varsity youth group partnered with The Food Bank to pack, load, and deliver fresh foods right to their doorsteps!
26 February 2020—National University Hospital And Khoo Teck Puat Hospital
We delivered refreshments, vitamin C tablets, and energy bars to the healthcare workers at National University Hospital and Khoo Teck Puat Hospital to cheer them on and appreciate them for their courage, selflessness, and dedication during this season.
21 February 2020—Willing Hearts
Our volunteers helped out at Willing Hearts, a local soup kitchen, to prepare, pack and deliver warm meals to the underprivileged. This is our way of supporting charities with a manpower crunch because of COVID-19.
15 & 22 February 2020—The Food Bank
With local charities such as The Food Bank facing manpower shortage during this time, our volunteers have availed themselves to provide extra pairs of hands to help pack food supplies.
14 February 2020—Tan Tock Seng Hospital
Healthcare workers put their lives on the line and work tirelessly to attend to the sick, and to keep Singapore safe. We brought refreshments, pain relief patches and vitamin C donated by our church to the medical staff at Tan Tock Seng Hospital to support and encourage them as they battle the coronavirus on the frontlines.
