WELCOME

As a FUNERAL Bereavement Services company, THE RESTING PLACE PTE LTD (Funeral Service Singapore) seeks to fulfil THE GREAT COMMISSION (Matthew 28:18-20) of The Lord Jesus Christ as HIS Ambassador in the marketplace (2 Corinthians 5:20).  We reach out and minister to the needs of Christian families who have lost their loved ones, while also reaching out to those who need to know about SALVATION and ETERNAL LIFE.

As a former Elder of a Church, I often had to conduct Funeral rites for Church and family members ; and I realized that meaningful services are needed to help family members cope with the Loss of a loved one to give them a living hope and a strength to move on with life.  With THE RESTING PLACE, our mission is to provide compassion, care, and biblical counselling, in our services to the bereaved and hope to make a difference in the lives of others.

As Believers and Christians, we take comfort that we have an ETERNAL INHERITANCE and BLESSINGS as promised in Our Saviour Jesus Christ.

We know that “JESUS is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  No one comes to the Father except through HIM” (John 14:6).

JESUS assured us that “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says The Lord, thoughts of peace and Not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11).

With that assurance, we know that “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me, all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the House of The Lord forever” (Psalms 23:6)

God wants us to know that we are all precious to HIM.  He loves us very much and thinks about us all the time. “Precious in the sight of The Lord is the death of His Saints.” (Psalms 116: 15)

JESUS also assured us that “I am the Resurrection and the Life.  He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.” (John 11:25).

 

May you be blessed and be encouraged!

WITH JESUS LOVE,
SHALOM.
Managing Director

PHASE 2 “SAFE TRANSITION”
NEA SAFE DISTANCING MEASURES AT FUNERALS INCLUDING WAKE SPACES, CREAMTORIUM AND CEMETERY (UPDATED 30 JUL 2020)

 

SUMMARY OF ESSENTIALS

As announced by the Multi-Ministry Taskforce, on  04 Aug  2020, restrictions on wakes and funerals will be eased further as part of a careful, calibrated resumption of social and economic activities in Phase Two.  In this next phase, activities that take place should continue to limit close contact among individuals, while maintaining hygiene and safe management principles.
The goal is to ensure that efforts taken during the circuit breaker period and Phase One (1) of reopening are sustained.

  1. Note that vulnerable persons such as the elderly should avoid attending the funeral services / wake for the protection of their own health.
  2. ALL who attend funeral and wakes are advised to wear a mask. The reusable mask issued by the Government for all residents may be worn for this purpose.
  3. Funeral directors, funeral parlor operators and families are urged to comply with the measures. Anyone who fails to comply with Regulation 13B of the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations 2020 may face a fine of up to SGD 10,000 or imprisonment of up to 6 months or both for the first offence. For second and subsequent offences, the penalty is a fine of up to SGD 20,000 or imprisonment of up to 12 months, or both.

A. FUNERAL WAKES
