Please take note that starting July 18, entry into IBC premises will only be allowed through the SafeEntry Gateway and TraceTogether app or token. Scanning of NRIC or FIN cards will no longer be available.

Schedule of Worship
Please take note of our regular schedule:
- Saturday service has been suspended for the foreseeable future
- Sunday services start at 9:00am and 11:30am. This schedule applies to both online and on-site services. Please take note that both services will be live-streamed on all our streaming platforms (Church Online, YouTube, and Facebook)
- Youth Services will still take place every other Saturday at 5pm
- Children's Sunday School
- 9:15am & 11:30am - Online classes via Zoom
We are opening up on-site service to 50 worshippers. Pre-registration is required to ensure that we are well within this headcount which has been pre-approved by the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY) for IBC.
Our pre-registration portal will open every Sunday at 8:00pm and will remain open until we are fully booked.
Upon registering, you will receive an email confirmation with further instructions. Please keep that email confirmation handy as you enter IBC's premises.
Seats are NOT pre-assigned. They will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Our ushers will lead you as we fill up Sanctuary seats row by row, one zone at a time.

When we're ready to get back on-site
Present your ticket/s at the gate. Upon booking, you will receive a confirmation email. Keep that handy for this coming Sunday.
Enter by the King's Road gate. It will open 15 minutes before each service to give our ushers enough time to have everyone seated before the service begins.
There will be no parking at IBC. We encourage you to come early and park at the nearby HDB estates and walk to the King's Rd gate to go into the Sanctuary.
Check-in using your NRIC/FIN or TraceTogether app/token and show your email confirmation to our ushers. These are the two main things that you need to have ready as you enter IBC's premises. We encourage you to have them ready as you enter the gate.
Observe safe distancing and put your mask on at all times. From the gate to the Sanctuary seats, we ask that you keep a safe distance from people outside of your household, and always put your mask on. 😷
Follow the lead of our Welcome Team. Our super lovely greeters are tasked to fill up seats row by row, one zone at a time. We appreciate your cooperation in helping ensure that we have an efficient and safe flow of worshippers.
No singing, fellowshipping or mingling. In compliance with government guidelines, these are our non-negotiables. We are free to hum and wave at each other, though! 😉
Sermon notes, bulletin and giving will be contactless. Look out for the QR codes on the pews to access all these.
Stay on your seats and in your zone. Once you're seated, please don't move to another available seat. The Sanctuary will be segmented into a few zones to maximize the allowable seating capacity.
Use the designated toilets for your zone. Follow the signages or ask the ushers to direct you to the toilets allocated for your zone.
At the end of service, don't rush your way out. We will be dismissed the same way we are ushered into the Sanctuary--zone by zone. Please follow the lead of our ushers. Thank you for your patience!
Pray with our Pastors on Zoom. We know you're excited to have some prayer time with our Pastors but we're unable to do that yet in the Sanctuary. You can get in touch with them through our Prayer Zoom Room at the end of each service. 🙏🏼
