Aldersgate Sunday Celebration
Speaker: Bishop Emeritus Dr Wee Boon Hup
Biblically strong families are the foundation of a strong church
Synopsis: Identity, marriage, and family are being redefined today. In light of this development, we revisit the values found in the Bible for establishing strong families. We will also consider some insights from the writings and life of Methodism’s founder John Wesley.
Thursday, 24 May @ 4:00 pm
Combined Pastors' Fellowship (for Methodist clergy only)
Speaker: Dr Tan Gee Paw
The Church and Nation-Building
Synopsis: As our nation awaits a leadership transition, it is critical for the Church to prayerfully re-assess its role in nation-building in a changing landscape. On this matter, the laity looks to the clergy for fresh directions for the Church, even as together we pray for wisdom and spiritual discernment. What are the new issues that will arise, that may challenge our Christian witness?
Thursday, 24 May @ 7:45 pm
Aldersgate Lecture (and panel discussion)
Speakers & Panellists:
Bishop Emeritus Dr Wee Boon Hup
Just As We Are: God's Call For Families
Synopsis: No human family is perfect. Yet God’s call for families remains. What can we realistically do to be the families God expects of us?
Mr Jason Wong
Strong Fathers Are Key To Strong Families
Synopsis: For nations to be strong, we need strong families. For families to be strong, we need strong fathers. How are Singapore fathers doing? How are Christian fathers in Singapore doing? If fathers do not fulfil their mandate to disciple families, our nation and future generations will be at stake.
Ms Denise Phua
Secret Weapons of a Working Mother in a Busy World
Synopsis: A mother of a special-needs son, and a wife, parliamentarian, and disability advocate; Ms Phua will share on Who and what she relies on to play her multiple roles on a daily basis.
