TNG WDL ONSITE faq

Hi parents AND youths!

We give thanks to the Lord for the opportunity to re-gather as One Body. Starting 12th September, we will be resuming our TNG onsite gatherings. We are looking forward to welcoming our children back for them to reconnect afresh with their friends and DMKs. Let's pray for them to rebuild strong bonds and spiritual friendships - to grow their sense of belonging, acceptance and purpose in a spiritual community.

We will be reopening in a calibrated manner with appropriate safety measures. Our children will be rostered to come back once a month - rotated by the districts the families belong to. Please refer to the table below for more details.

You will also receive information by e-mail to register for tickets when it is your turn. We also invite you to continue attending the online ZOOM gatherings on the weeks that you are not onsite. For more information on our TNG onsite gatherings, please refer to the FAQ down below.

See you soon!

GENERAL ENQUIRIES

1 - DO I/MY CHILD NEED TO GO THROUGH PET OR BE VACCINATED TO ATTEND TNG ONSITE?

Only those attending the main worship service would need to take the PET or be fully vaccinated. As TNG gatherings are in groups of 5 in a total class size of less than 50, they are not required to be vaccinated.

2 - CAN MY CHILD ATTEND THE MAIN SERVICE WITH PARENTS IF THEY ARE NOT ATTENDING TNG SESSIONS?

If your child is 12yrs and above, they will need to either (1) be fully vaccinated, (2) gone through PET testing, or (3) have a PET exemption notice to attend the main service with you.

If your child is
below 12 yrs from the same household as the accompanying adult, they are exempted from the vaccination and pre-event testing requirements. However, each child will need to have a valid ticket in order to enter the main sanctuary under the new government regulations. Tickets for children under 12 are limited to a cap of 20% of the total sanctuary capacity.
