Coming Up

Begin your Lent journey with The Giving Methodist

Feb 2018    

The Giving Methodist aims to galvanise all Methodists to come together to perform acts of mercy and give generously in benefit of the poor, in need, distressed, and elderly sick. This season of Lent, join our campaign and use the gifts you have been given to honour Christ.

Give time: Join a community blessing of a Methodist church, or volunteer at an MWS centre

Choose from over 200 social concerns activities run by Methodist churches and Methodist Welfare Services (MWS) centres. The activities are carefully selected to be simple and flexible for everyone to participate in for a short, limited time. No experience or special skills are needed for most of the activities. You can sign up for as many activities as your schedule allows. Feel free to bring friends or family along to join you on this meaningful journey.

Give a donation: Make an impact to lives every day, by giving $1 a day

Your gift can create change in the lives of over 9,000 disadvantaged and distressed families and individuals who receive help through 20 MWS centres and programmes. We are appealing for either a regular contribution of $1 a day ($30 monthly); a one-time donation of $365; or any amount that you can give. You can also start a fundraising campaign on giving.sg for MWS. God loves a cheerful giver.

Give your voice: Use your voice, words, and social networks to give back

Help us spread the awareness of TGM among your church friends and family in social media or through your daily interactions. Pray and intercede for the beneficiaries and social concerns ministries of the Church. You can download resources from the TGM website thegivingmethodist.sg and share them on your online social networks like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, emailing or rallying your cell group and church personally.
