Joyfully sounding Christ’s birth at Orchard

Dec 2017    

What if you had a chance to proclaim Christ’s birth to the world at our doorstep?

According to the Singapore Tourism Board’s statistics for 2016, more than 1.5 million visitors entered Singapore last December. Most visitors are likely to stroll along Orchard Road this season, not forgetting foreigners working here and locals. Wouldn’t you seize this opportunity to connect with passers-by to share the Good News along our famed shopping district this season?

Celebrate Christmas In Singapore (CCIS) seeks to proclaim the Hope that we have in Christ who has redeemed us for eternity. Nightly performances proclaiming the Reason for Christmas will be held from 16 – 23 Dec 2017, from 7–10.30 p.m. along the pedestrian walkway with two stages in front of Ion Orchard and Wisma Atria respectively.

Methodist churches involved include Barker Road Methodist Church, Paya Lebar Chinese Methodist Church, Queenstown Chinese Methodist Church, Seletar Tamil Methodist Church, Telok Ayer Chinese Methodist Church, and Telugu Methodist Church.

Volunteers can help to give out the CCIS-prepared outreach booklets and start intentional conversations, or help out at the interactive booths. There will be two charity booths: one by 365 Cancer Prevention Society, and the other by My Christmas Wish, a foundation that gives underprivileged children Christmas gifts.

We can also extend hospitality to the visiting performing groups, or spend time with our families and friends at CCIS, rediscovering the meaning of Christmas through answering questions at the Story Box and Children Interactive Booths.

CCIS is run by the grace of God’s provision through His church. Your prayers, support, and love gifts will be much appreciated.
