B.C.省府於5月6日宣佈將實施一個分階段重啟本省的計劃及其它公佈,即由5月19日起逐步放寬現有的公眾限制。教會董事會就此作出檢討後,決定准許一些教會行政同工嘗試以部份時間在家、部份時間在教會的形式工作,試驗期由5月20日開始。然而目前教堂仍須繼續關閉,各事工領導如有需要進入教堂內,仍須事先獲得董事會(請聯絡其中一位主席)、或教牧同工(請聯絡黃心朗牧師)的批准。

註:現階段內教牧同工仍繼續在家中工作,直至另行通知。

在這期間,教會電話會接駁至其中一名教會秘書的電話。故此,若會眾有任何查詢,亦可繼續致電604-325-6314,我們的同工會繼續服事大家。會眾亦可致電教會電話,並輸入教牧同工的內線,便可聯絡個別的牧者。

在這個前所未遇的處境當中,溫浸將會繼續致力服事會眾和社區。我們的社群關懷計劃會繼續尋求服事的機會,例如為有特別需要人士遞送日用品及食物。如有此需要,可致電教會604-325-6314, 我們的同工和義工會盡所能為你提供協助。此外,我們的愛心基金亦繼續邀請在財政上有困難的人士申請。最後,我們的教牧與執事亦會在此期間盡力為大家提供屬靈上的關懷。

週日崇拜方面,我們將會繼續進行網上直播。詳情或指示可見於本會的網址。

感謝會眾在此期間的包容和體諒。願神保守眾人的身心靈。

溫浸董事會


VCBC Special Announcement Regarding COVID-19 (Updated May 17)

Upon reviewing the B.C. Government’s May 6 announcement of a phased Restart Plan for the province and additional pronouncements—with gradual easing of public restrictions to commence on May 19—our Board of Directors has given approval for some church administrative staff to work partially at home and partially at church on a trial basis starting on May 20 The church remains closed to everyone else, and prior permission for ministry leaders from the Board (through the Moderator) or the Pastoral Team (through Rev. Sam Wong) is still required in order to enter church premise.  Note: the Pastoral Staff will continue to work from home during this time until further notice.

During this time, church’s phone number will be forwarded to one of our secretaries. As a result, you may still call 604-325-6314 for any inquiry, and our staff will continue to serve you. You may also contact any of our pastors by calling the church’s number and their extension. You call will then be transferred to their cellphones.

Though this is an unprecedented situation we are all in, VCBC will continue to try our best to serve and help our members as well as our community. Our Community Care Initiative will continue to seek opportunity to help those in needs, such as food & grocery delivery. For any person who needs help in such area, please call 604-325-6314 to talk to our staff, and our volunteers will try their best to assist you. Also, our Charity Fund will continue to invite application for financial assistance. Last but not least, our pastors and deacons will continue to contact our brothers and sisters for spiritual care.

We will also continue to maintain our Sunday Services via internet. Brothers and sisters should continue to check our website for any update and instructions.

Thank you very much for your understanding. May God protect your body, your mind, and your spirit.

VCBC Board of Directors
