Communication Bulletin on COVID-19


Communication Bulletin on COVID-19
Mar 14, 2020
Special announcement
Dear NTCBC family,
Your health and safety is of primary concern to Church, and in view of the Ontario Health Chief Medical
Officer’s recommendation of immediate suspending all large events and public gatherings of over 250
people due to COVID-19, the Deacon Board and Pastoral Team has decided to suspend all in-person
meetings at church immediately until future notice.
We invite you this Sunday and every Sunday morning to join our “online” worship. We will provide “live
streaming” services at our usual time: English Service at 9:45 am, Cantonese Service 11:15 am, and
Mandarin Service 11:15 am. Please refer to our church website ( for the details to
experience the online worship. As for offsite meetings such as fellowship, cell groups, bible study, and
caring ministry, we encourage you to find creative ways to stay connected in the meanwhile.
As COVID-19 has caused fear and trouble all around us, let us be reminded that God knows it all and
He is always in control. Psalm 46 says, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in
troubles. Therefore we will not fear.” This is a challenging time, but it is also a good opportunity for us to
live out our Christian faith and love. We encourage every one of us to do the following:
  1. Pray Continually – Ask God to help government officials around the globe to stop the spread of
    the virus, to heal the infected people, and to protect healthcare professionals.
  2. Care for one-another – Reach out to our brothers and sisters in Christ by phone or
    Whatsapp/Wechat, etc., making sure they are okay and asking if they need any assistance.
  3. Love your neighbour – Reach out to your neighbour, showing hospitality and kindness (e.g.
    buying groceries for a neighbour.)

In time like this, let us function as salt and light of the world; let our good deeds shine out for all to see,
so that everyone will praise our heavenly Father (Mt. 5:16). Together we can make a positive
change/impact to our society.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation with this arrangement.
