Methodist Centre R&R begins with prayer

Jan 2018    

Long-awaited maintenance works on the Methodist Centre began with the Renovation and Restoration (R&R) project in November 2017, and are slated for completion in July 2018.

On 17 Nov 2017, representatives from the steering, working, and project committees, main contractor and other key personnel came together for an opening prayer to kick-start the R&R project.

Mr Lye Kuan Lay, the project lead, gave a briefing on what the project would entail. Following that, Trinity Annual Conference President the Rev Dr Gordon Wong, Emmanuel Tamil Annual Conference President the Rev James Nagulan, and Bishop Dr Chong Chin Chung consecutively prayed for safety, good weather, and good working relationships amongst contractors, consultants, and the various committee members.

The session closed with a group photo (top) to commemorate the event.
