Seeking the Welfare of Our City

Mar 2015    

Three distinguished speakers from Singapore, Malaysia and Sri Lanka will address issues on “Seeking the Welfare of our City” over three lectures for Aldersgate SG 2015 on 21 to 23 May.

The annual keynote event of The Methodist Church Singapore (MCS), this year’s edition of Aldersgate Convention is based on Jeremiah 29:7 and features lectures from Bishop Emeritus Dr Robert Solomon, the Rev Asiri Perera (President-designate of the Methodist Church, Sri Lanka) and Mr Anthony Row (General Conference Secretary of the Methodist Church in Malaysia), who will share their perspectives on seeking the welfare of their respective cities.

Why do Methodists come together to commemorate Aldersgate? John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, felt his heart “strangely warmed” during a reading of Luther’s Preface to the Epistle to the Romans on 24 May 1738. Aldersgate is significant in the lives of the Methodists because that very evening at Aldersgate Street in London, he felt the burning assurance of his salvation, and was inspired to begin a movement that swept across England and the rest of the world.

We draw upon Jeremiah 29:7 and are guided by the principle from this verse in our Aldersgate celebration, to “… seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.”

Aldersgate SG 2015 will be celebrated in conjunction with Singapore’s Jubilee and the MCS’ 130th anniversary, and will explore biblical, theological and Wesleyan convictions behind MCS’ role in nation building, the expression of these convictions in other societies, and lessons we can draw from these societies.

The lectures will be held at Faith Methodist Church at 7.45 p.m. on 21 and 22 May, and 2.30 p.m. on 23 May, followed by a panel discussion with the three speakers.

On Aldersgate Unity Sunday on 24 May, our local Methodist churches will screen a video-taped sermon by Bishop Dr Wee Boon Hup at their Sunday services. Do come and celebrate Aldersgate with us!
