Covenant Community MC: Knowing God deeply and making Him widely known

Jul 2018    

A year after Methodist Girls’ School (MGS) moved from Mount Sophia to Blackmore Drive in 1992, the Principal, Mrs Anna Tham, invited The Methodist Church in Singapore to start a preaching point there.

Pastors and members from Barker Road Methodist Church and Wesley Methodist Church began to work together to raise a congregation.  Many volunteers responded to the call in May 1993.

Within five months, the first worship service was conducted in the MGS Chapel on 10 Oct  – sowing the seeds for the birth of Covenant Community Methodist Church (CCMC). Praying fervently for direction, our founding members were led to the name ‘Covenant Community’. Based on Ephesians 2:19-22, it emphasises our ‘community in covenant with God and each other’.

On 11 Sep 1994, CCMC became the 16th Local Conference in the Trinity Annual Conference. That day saw 75 pioneer members being received – 28 by baptism and confirmation, and 47 others through membership transfer.

The congregation expanded exponentially and a second worship service at 11 a.m. was added in January 1996. By 1999, the 9 a.m. service had outgrown the Chapel and moved to the Auditorium starting with the 5th Anniversary Thanksgiving Service.

CCMC now has over 800 members, with almost 500 in 35 small groups.

Today, even as CCMC is a Gospel Lighthouse, ‘a Beacon of Truth and Light’, our commitment to MGS remains the same. Beyond that, we long to be a church welcoming our surrounding communities to come and worship God with us. We are also working to kick-start small groups in the housing estates around the vicinity of the school. By God’s grace, we recently launched our Korean and Japanese ministries to reach out to our international neighbours.

CCMC is a church that goes to the needy and to the nations. Our church serves needy families in Sembawang through our Sembawang Family Service Centre. We also participate in missions through The Methodist Mission Society in China, Nepal, Cambodia; the Overseas Missionary Fellowship in Thailand; and with the Sarawak Iban Annual Conference.

CCMC is committed to winning the generations for Christ and fully embodying  the church’s vision  ‘To Know God Deeply and Make Him Known Widely’. Hence, CCMC’s ministries and community cover all generational levels, from children, youth, young adults, men, women, to seniors.

We want to reach the nations and generations for Christ. All are welcome to come and serve God with us!
