Concerned parents attend City Harvest Church’s service with their children

According to Yahoo News, several adults were seen accompanying their teenaged children during the service but remaining seated and silent throughout the service.
In an interview with Yahoo News, one 56 year old parent said:
“I’m still okay with my son going for service at CHC – he’s grown up and it’s his choice, but I was worried when I found out you could make donations through credit card – he uses our supplementary card and I’m not comfortable with him donating to a church that I personally wish was more accountable.”
Another parent 48 year old Sally Low added:
“The newspapers are saying one thing, but my daughter says it’s not true. So I’m here to make sure my daughter doesn’t anyhow (sic) believe everything she hears.”
CHC found itself in the spotlight of late after its founder Kong Hee and four other members were charged on Wednesday for misusing up to S$50 million dollars of the church’s funds to further the music career of Ho Yeow Sun, the singer wife of Kong, a charge which he had strenuously denied.
