Virtual Concourse takes a break while on-site service resumes

by Alicia Tan


‘Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labour in vain.’ – Psalms 127:1



This morning’s Virtual Concourse marked the close of the first season of virtual fellowship as CCMC resumes on-site Sunday Worship Service on 6 December 2020, the 2nd Sunday in Advent.


Virtual Concourse members reflected on how the online platform had helped to spin off fellowship groups like makan (eat in Malay), cycling and more. What remained key were the opportunities to remain connected and the ability to adapt to and be resilient in the new normal.


With church resuming on-site service soon, Virtual Concourse will take a break as members look forward to attending service in person.


Under Phase 2 of Singapore’s re-opening, the on-site service is limited to 50 persons. CCMC’s online services will still continue every Sunday for those unable to attend on-site service.
