CHECKING IN & OUT AT SERVICES

Safe check-in process for admission to church services will be done via a new system implemented by the government, called SafeEntry GateWay (SEGW).

Those who have been using your handphone
No need to scan the SafeEntry QR code anymore unless you would like to have a record of the places that you have visited. All you have to do is to activate the TraceTogether App and bring it close to the SEGW device (in the range of 1-25cm) to be detected.

Those who have been using your TraceTogether (TT) Token
Just bring your token close to the SEGW device (in the range of 1-25cm) to be detected.

However if your token is at low-battery or not working, it will not respond. This will indicate that you need to replace the battery or the token at a community club.

Those who still have not collected your tokens are strongly advised to do so. Scanning of ICs & Work passes will not be used once the Govt announces that all venues MUST USE TraceTogether only.

Checking Out After Services

In addition to the current SafeEntry Gateway (SEGW) Check-in, there is now a SEGW Check-out process. This is done by way of tapping our handphone (that has the TT function loaded) or our Token against the SEGW Check-Out Device.

While this process is not mandatory, and will not be monitored by a church staff, checking-out when we leave the church will make it more accurate for the authorities when Contact Tracing is being done.

The Church has been issued four such devices, and from Saturday 10 July 2021 onwards, they will be positioned at the following spot.

  1. At Lift Lobby A leading to the basement carpark
  2. At Atrium B, for people leaving the church via the Atrium towards Margaret Drive
  3. At Atrium F, for people leaving the church via the Atrium towards Commonwealth Avenue
  4. At Foyer 2, for people leaving church via the Plaza towards Commonwealth Avenue

The devices have been set up and activated. Each device will be accompanied by a poster giving very brief instructions, which is more of a reminder to members as they leave the church.
