Originally, worship service is not something "unnessesary urgent", but it is essential for God's people.

However, from the perspectives of preventing the spread of COVID-19 infections in local area and cooperating with local government requests, it is not a form of gathering together, but we would like to worship the Lord with our hearts together to Him.


We appreciate your understanding.
