For the Attention of all Parishioners As Chrisans it is our spiritual responsibility and duty to aend Sunday services regularly. Following are certain guidelines to remember while we are aending our Church Service. • • • •

• •

• •

Try to join the service from the beginning with reverence (9:00 am) Take and use a copy of the Order of Service and Bible during the service. Try to occupy front seats. Switch off Mobile Phones. Don’t use mobile for sending any kind of messages while you are aending the service Don’t distract your fellow worshippers by talking, murmuring, gossiping, chewing etc. While coming for thanksgiving prayer or for receiving Holy Communion leave your shoes/sandals under your seats. Don’t enter inside the railings with shoes/sandals. The service will end only by singing the Doxology. So don’t rush out of the church immediately a2er receiving the communion. Leave the Cry area for children below three years of age. Keep our church neat and dy. (Don’t give food to children inside the church)
