New Tamil outreach service at Sengkang

Oct 2017    

On 10 Sep 2017, Ang Mo Kio Tamil Methodist Church (AMKTMC) and Sengkang Methodist Church (SKMC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for AMKTMC to begin a weekly Tamil outreach service at SKMC’s premises. Although both our churches come from different Annual Conferences, we joined hands to minister to the Tamil community in Sengkang and Punggol, effectively aligning ourselves with Bishop Dr Chong Chin Chung’s quadrennial vision for the Methodist Church to be “Together as one in spirit and purpose”.

AMKTMC’s outreach in Sengkang and Punggol had begun on 6 Sep 2015 with the Rev R. Prabhu’s vision of reaching out to the Indian community, and bringing them into the Kingdom of God as disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ. With God’s amazing grace, this outreach work has now come to fruition with SKMC providing us a space to worship, and we held our first evening service on the very same day the MOU was signed. Special thanks to SKMC’s Pastor-in-Charge, the Rev Dr Niam Kai Huey, and the leadership, for their prayers and support which made this possible. All Glory to God.

Our weekly Sunday evening services will commence from 1 Oct 2017 at 6 p.m. on Level 3 of SKMC, 31 Anchorvale Road, Singapore 545056. Pray for us that AMKTMC will rise to the challenges to reach Indians for God’s Kingdom.

“The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest.” (Luke 10:2, ESV)
