A church in East China’s Zhejiang Province held an etiquette training course for receptionists at ministries of foreign affairs and a friendly table tennis match to welcome the 2023 Asian Games.
Hangzhou CC&TSPM and the Hangzhou Christian Family and Elderly Service Center jointly organized the etiquette training course, aiming at enhancing the etiquette quality of receptionist volunteers and standardizing their public relations etiquette. According to the Hangzhou CC&TSPM, over 90 Christian volunteers who are proficient in foreign languages such as English, Japanese, Korean, and Russian attended the course on May 27, 2023, at Sicheng Church. They come from the reception ministries of Chongyi Church, Chengbei Church, Gongchen Church, Gulou Church, Sicheng Church, Tianshui Church, and Hangzhou YWCA.
Chen Limei, an associate professor of flight attendant at the School of Art of Zhejiang Tourism Vocational College and an expert in international civilized etiquette for the Hangzhou Asian Games, was invited to give a lecture. It incorporated topics such as "an overview of foreign volunteer etiquette", "etiquette norms of volunteer service", "volunteer civilized language norms and daily language", and "customs and taboos of countries in the Asian Games." She used classroom explanation, case analysis, and on-site interaction to explain the important aspects of receiving etiquette, including personal image, manners, expressions, personal clothing, and civilized language.
Moreover, to prepare for the upcoming Asian Games, Sicheng Church and Gospel Church in Xietong Community, Binjiang District jointly held a friendly table tennis match on May 27. In the team competition, Gospel Church emerged victorious with a score of 3 to 2. The individual competition also yielded result determinations for the women's champion and runners-up and the men's top four players.
Rev. Huang Mingke, senior pastor of Sicheng Church, said, "As Sicheng Church is a crucial reception place for the Christian community during the Asian Games, good environmental beautification and green plant care are fundamental."
