Updated Advisory to families with young children
WRPF has encouraged all parents with young children to stay at home for the time being as a precautionary measure. We missed you all on Sunday and hoped you experienced the spirit of worship online. The staff have decided to close GNK to minimise contact across congregations. However, if you still decide to bring your children, do keep them with you in the cry room or your congregation. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and we pray that this period will tide over soon.
New Head of Good News Kids (GNK) Wef 15 February 2020
Tom Cannon will take over from Judith Chia to head GNK. We want to thank Judith for two decades of faithfully serving and then leading GNK in its transitions. She will continue to serve and help to handhold the emerging younger leaders. When Tom was the Pastoral overseer for GNK, he was responsible to provide prayer coverage, liaison with staff, give ministry input, and facilitate resources. In this new appointment, as Head of GNK with effect from 15 February, he will be taking responsibility for the ministry and will actively lead it. Let us pray for him as we give him our full support.
Next two Sundays: 16 & 23 February 2020

CHURCH ADVISORY NOTICE ON WUHAN VIRUS
We have been monitoring developments regarding the Wuhan Virus on the Ministry of Health website (www.moh.gov.sg) and we feel it is good, without going overboard to take a few precautionary measures as a church:
1. If you have travelled to and from China (regardless of the region), do ensure you quarantine yourself for a period of 14 days from the day of your return, consistent with the Ministry of Health guidelines. Inform the church, so we can pray with you too.
2. If you feel unwell or experience respiratory symptoms such as cough or shortness of breath, please refrain from attending church meetings (Sunday worship, cell groups etc.). You may watch or listen to the worship services online at wrpf.org.sg/worshipservices. Inform the church so we can pray with you.
3. Observe hygiene guidelines like washing your hands, avoiding handshakes and be sensitive when interacting with children who are not related to you. In unforeseen circumstances, if you need a surgical mask immediately, you may approach a church staff member.
Let us be reminded that while God promises His protection over His children, we are called to be sensible, and be considerate of others.read more
