A time to give thanks

Nov 2018    

The Boys’ Brigade in Singapore (BB) and The Girls’ Brigade Singapore (GB) organised a significant inaugural joint Thanksgiving Service on 20 Oct 2018 at Christalite Methodist Chapel.

Over 100 people, including BB and GB Executive Committee Members, Officers and Alumni, attended the momentous occasion.

The Right Reverend Terry Kee, President of the National Council of Churches in Singapore and Bishop of The Lutheran Church in Singapore, presided over the service and witnessed the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the two Brigades.

Noting the importance of unity, the MOU focused on the BB and GB Explorers Programme. This community development programme is developed for kindergarten children—both boys and girls—aged five and six in Singapore.

During the service, the Right Reverend Terry Kee emphasised that the BB and GB are bound together by a common purpose. He urged the Brigades not to be daunted by differences or challenges they may face but to stand united, strengthening and supporting one another’s ministry.
