主曆 二O二O年 三月 十七日

After taking into consideration the Directives issued by the BC Health Authority in its implementation of policies to counter COVID-19, VCA has decided that, with immediate effect (March 17), all meetings that normally and regularly take place at the church premises at 54th Avenue and Fraser Street will be temporarily discontinued until further alternative arrangements are in place.

These regular meetings include Prayer Meetings every Tuesday evening, Chinese and English Fellowships every Friday evening, all Sunday Meetings, Gospel Fellowship, Bethel Fellowship and YAYA Meetings.

"...Nor forsaking the assembling of ourselves together..."—Hebrews 10:25

Although we are unable to gather together, we truly believe that our fellowship in spirit will not be deterred. Although we are physically separated from one another, we are still one in the Lord. For the time being, we can only fall back on today’s web technology to arrange some meetings. If any brother or sister that has any questions regarding the use of computers or smart phones to get on to the internet, please get in touch with Brother Ding (604-322-1772).

The new arrangements for Meetings:

  1. Lord’s Table—Brothers and sisters can have the Lord’s Table at home with their families (do not invite other brothers and sisters to join widely—the number present should not exceed ten (10) persons. If unleavened (no yeast) bread or small disposable cups are required, we will try our best to help, in which case, please contact Sister Weidi Ding (604-322-1772) for assistance.

    An online Breaking of Bread meeting will be available to brothers and sisters starting this Sunday, March 29 at 10:15am:
  2. Sunday Messages will be broadcast on the VCA website www.vcabc.org
    • In English every Sunday at 9:00 a.m.
    • In Mandarin every Sunday at 11:30 am
  3. Mandarin Bible Study by live broadcast on VCA website www.vcabc.org
    • Every Friday evening at 7:30 pm.
  4. Tuesday Night Prayer meeting at 8:00-9:00pm

When liaising and caring for members by and of cell groups, for brothers and sisters and for Gospel friends, please do so by using the internet to avoid physical face to face meetings with one another. In this way, it is hoped that we can be strong in the Lord (Eph 6:10), staying at home, spending more time with the Lord, praying, studying His Word and singing hymns. We all should be vigilant about our own hygiene and take care of our physical health.

The above arrangements for various meetings are all temporary arrangements. We look to the Lord for His mercy and infinite power that normal meetings will resume at an early date. Any changes to the above will be promptly notified to brothers and sisters and announcements made on the Assembly’s website.
