Record turnout at All Saints’ Day Memorial Service

Dec 2017    

In conjunction with All Saints’ Day, a Memorial Service was held at the Chapel of The Garden of Remembrance on 4 Nov 2017, with a record attendance of 280 patrons and guests. Twice a year, close to All Saints’ Day and Easter respectively, The Garden of Remembrance puts together a special complimentary Memorial Service for friends and families with loved ones resting at the columbarium, which was established in 1999 by The Methodist Church in Singapore to remember our loved ones and celebrate life eternal.

The Methodist Festival Choir from the Methodist School of Music led the congregation in praise and worship, accompanied by the Emmanuel Symphony Orchestra headed by Mr Ong Koe Pho, with music specially arranged and conducted by Mr Daniel Bonaventure Lim.

In his message, Bishop Dr Chong Chin Chung reminded us to “always be grateful for our blessings, paying special attention to the persons who’ve blessed us with their kind actions and words”. He stressed the importance of an attitude of gratitude, constantly emulating the virtues of our forefathers, and always remembering the source of our blessings (饮水思源).

Peppered with thought-provoking anecdotes, Bishop Dr Chong’s message resonated well with the congregation. He concluded by singing and playing two songs on his accordion: ‘Pavilion Farewell’ and ‘Auld Lang Syne’.All glory to God for the overwhelming response, and we pray for Him to guide and strengthen us as we seek to glorify His name in all that we do!
