Dear family in Christ
We praise and thank the Lord for two significant events last weekend. On Saturday 17 October, 52J Boys Brigade company and 52nd Girls Brigade company celebrated its 20th anniversary joy. The BB and GB children, together with their parents, and also teachers, officers and helpers, gathered joyously over Zoom for the 20th anniversary Thanksgiving and Badge presentation programme. On behalf of Pei Tong Primary School, Mr Jonah Lim (teacher in charge) presented the anniversary plaque to St John’s Chapel in appreciation of our church ministry partnership.
We thank the Lord for the opportunity to shape and build the character of 20 cohorts of children and the joy of sharing the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ with them. We want to acknowledge and appreciate our church members who have been involved in this ministry, both past and present, for their faithful and committed ministry service as captains, officers, chaplains, regular helpers and ad-hoc volunteers. Thank you so much for loving the children and touching their lives with the grace and love of God.
As a diocese, we rejoice in the consecration and enthronement of the tenth Bishop of Singapore on Sunday 18 October. Let us keep Bishop Titus Chung in fervent prayers as he leads the diocese and shepherd God’s people in Singapore and the six deanery countries by the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.
May the gospel of Jesus Christ be faithfully proclaimed through God’s people in the parishes, schools, community services and mission deaneries.
