The 9th Worship and Liturgical Conference of the World Federation of Chinese Methodist Churches (WFCMC) seeks to promote a deeper understanding as well as enhance believers’ personal experience of the ‘liturgies’ of life. It has been more than a decade since the Liturgical Conference was last held in Singapore. This year’s event is co-organised by the WFCMC and Singapore’s Chinese Annual Conference (CAC) Board of Worship & Music, and will take place at Telok Ayer Chinese Methodist Church from 12 to 14 July 2018.
In line with the theme ‘The Living Power of Life’s Liturgy (生命礼仪的生命力)’, the Conference will centre around four lectures:
- ‘The Living Power of Baptism’ by the Rev Dr Lam Sung Che, President of Hong Kong’s CAC and WFCMC Chairman;
- ‘The Living Power of Holy Communion’ by the Rev Dr Niam Kai Huey, CAC Singapore;
- ‘The Living Power of Holy Matrimony’ by the Rev Dr Khoo Ho Peng, Principal of Methodist Theological School, East Malaysia; and
- ‘The Living Power of Funeral Rites’ by the Rev See Ping Eik, CAC Singapore.
Participants can respond to the lectures during two forum discussions. There will also be morning worship and devotion sessions, as well as nightly sharing-cum-fellowship among the local and overseas participants.
The Opening Worship and Holy Communion Service will be held on 12 July 2018 at 7.30 p.m. The Rev Lu Chen Tiong from Sarawak will speak on ‘Reflecting on Life’s Liturgy’. The Closing Worship Service on 14 July 2018 at 2.30 p.m. will have Singapore’s CAC President the Rev Dr Goh Nai Lat sharing on ‘Life’s Liturgy – Living out Christ’. All are welcome for these two services; admission is free.
The Rev Ng Beng Keow is Chairperson of the Chinese Annual Conference Board of Worship & Music, and leads the Organising Committee of the 9th Worship and Liturgical Conference of the World Federation of Chinese Methodist Churches.
