Dear family in Christ
Singing at church services
Sometimes in life, we only treasure what or who is really important to us when it is taken away or no longer with us. Many of us had experienced missing this “treasure” of singing praises aloud to God together for the past one year. We are thankful that from 5 April 2021, the government has given approval for congregation attendees to sing aloud at our church worship services, subject to safe management measures of (1) mask-wearing at all times, and (2) the duration of masked singing is capped at a total of 30 minutes at each service. Let us make a joyful noise unto the Lord.
Virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Sunday 25 April (3 pm)
We thank God for the coming virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 25 April, a time when we see God’s gracious sovereign hand upon our church in the transformation of lives and in serving Him in ministry and mission in the work of His eternal kingdom. By now, electoral roll members would have received the AGM reports and the proxy voting form weblink.
Our church constitution requires one third of Electoral Roll members to form the AGM quorum. Under Virtual AGM guidelines, your proxy voting form is important because it is counted as part of the quorum. Your proxy form appoints the Chairman of AGM (the Vicar of St John’s Chapel) as your proxy to attend, speak and vote on your behalf. After you have read all the AGM reports, thank you for submitting your (online) proxy voting form, latest by 21 April, 12 noon.
We are organising a pre-AGM Town Hall zoom meeting on Sunday 18 April (3.00 pm) to address any questions, clarifications or comments concerning the AGM reports. Please use this Town Hall platform to present your thoughts or questions, as the virtual AGM on 25 April will not include any Question & Answer segment. Kindly email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org by 14 April. All electoral roll members are welcome to attend this Town Hall zoom meeting. Pls register your attendance at email@example.com
Value your prayers for a Christ-centred AGM that honours the Lord and edify God’s people.
“Oh sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth! Sing to the Lord, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvellous works among all the peoples!” Psalm 96:1-3
