National Day Thanksgiving Service 2018

Aug 2018    

First held in 2004, the National Day Thanksgiving Service is organised by the National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS) to coincide with our National Day celebrations.

Customarily held a week after National Day at St Andrew’s Cathedral, the annual event brings together Christians from different churches, denominations and walks of life. The service includes prayer for the country’s continued wellbeing as well as for regional peace and harmony. The sermon usually exhorts worshippers to grow in Christian witness and social responsibility, and to contribute to nation building.

Each year, various churches take turns to offer choir anthems and musical items.

After the service, a fellowship reception enables the body of Christ to mingle and encourage one another in the faith.

We welcome all to this special time of worship and thanksgiving.
