KUCHING, March 14: Kuching Evangelical Church will hold a final mass tomorrow (March 15) to unite prayers for all during the Covid-19 pandemic, before services are suspended for one month from March 22.

All meetings, prayer meetings and youth group meetings are officially cancelled during this period.

Pastor Brian King informed that Sunday’s service will be shorter and additional measures will be implemented including allowing more space between seats. Collection baskets or boxes for offerings will be placed in designated place and refreshments will be cancelled after the service.

“This assumes that we won’t see a dramatic spike in cases in Sarawak in the next 12 to 24 hours. We will reconsider if that happens,” he said in a statement today.

He advised those who are sick, the elderly, who have travelled overseas recently, immunocompromised and frontline health workers not to attend the service, but most importantly, members are not forced to come.

During the month-long service suspension period, Brian said that alternative arrangements will be made such as live streaming the sermon on Facebook.

“If situation do dramatically improve, we will review when the services will resume. We will continue to try to provide updates via WhatsApp, our Facebook page and our website,” he continued. — DayakDaily
