Seen our flame-shaped flyers for Aldersgate SG 2017? (If not, they’re inserted in this very issue of Methodist Message.) You may be wondering: “What is this all about?”
Firstly, they’re a reminder about the annual keynote event of Methodists in Singapore – and this year, our theme is ‘Catch the Flame: The Wesleyan Pursuit of Holiness’. How can we “catch the flame” of social action, evangelism and discipleship sparked in the “strangely warmed” heart of Methodism’s founder, John Wesley? How do we commit to pursuing holiness through following Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit? Come find out – book your place at aldersgate.methodist.org.sg.
Secondly, the flyers are a key element of our ‘Catch the Flame!’ social media campaign, where you can win one of three prizes totalling $300 worth of dining and shopping vouchers. Simply snap a photo of yourself and/or your friends posing creatively with the flame flyer, and submit it according to the instructions (see box). Videos are accepted as well!

Thirdly, the flyers are a handy way to invite family and friends to Aldersgate SG 2017, to be inspired and revitalised in their Christian faith. After all, as in the well-loved song ‘Pass it On’:
“It only takes a spark to get a fire going
And soon all those around can warm up in its glowing
That’s how it is with God’s love, once you experience it
You spread His love to everyone
You want to pass it on”
So go ahead, ‘Catch the Flame’ and pass it on, and we look forward to seeing you at Aldersgate SG 2017!
