Dear family in Christ
I share a few announcements for your information and prayer.
- Launch of Caleb Fellowship wef 25 September 2021
The Lord has given Rev George & Mrs Eunice Tay a burden to reach out to those 60 years old & above who have yet to experience the love of Christ, via a new church plant named “Caleb Fellowship”. Bishop Titus Chung has given his approval to Rev George to start this new church plant and for St John’s Chapel to provide ecclesiastical covering for Caleb Fellowship. The launch date will be on Saturday 25 September 2021 at 4.00 pm at YMCA Orchard Road. Value all our prayers that as the gospel of Jesus Christ is proclaimed faithfully, many will believe in Jesus and come into His eternal kingdom by the grace and mercy of God.
- Diocese Education Sunday
We thank God for many gospel opportunities in Education Missions. The diocese Education Board oversees 31 schools and preschools with a total enrolment of 15,000 students. COVID has presented many challenges to staff and students, as well as parents, but we acknowledge God’s grace and mercy as He continues to sustain us. Value your prayers for our church chaplaincy team (Rev John, Florence Hou, Loon Fu Mun, Yeo Yun Jing, Shirleen Yap, Sasha Michael) as they minister the gospel of Jesus Christ and the love of God in outreach and pastoral care to the students and staff of St Margaret’s Secondary school.
- Auxiliary chaplaincy staff, Ms Sasha Michael
I have been praying for God to provide personnel to strengthen our chaplaincy team. By God’s gracious provision, Ms Sasha Michael has agreed to serve as an auxiliary staff, solely focusing on school chaplaincy ministry for three full weekdays per week during the MOE school terms. Sasha is a lay member of St Andrew’s Cathedral, serving as a Lay Reader and Praise team leader & musician. We welcome her to our chaplaincy team.
- Tributer, Ms Ny Jiyin
We welcome new Tributer Ms Ng Jiyin as she comes on the Tribute program from 7 September to 31 December 2021. She will serve in the following ministries: Chaplaincy, Children, Young Adults, Pastoral care and 31st Girls Brigade (SMSS). Ds Lena will provide pastoral leadership and guidance for Jiyin’s spiritual growth and ministry service.
