Charis MC celebrates 30 years, announces redevelopment plans

Jul 2019    

We are deeply thankful to be able to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Charis Methodist Church (MC), as well as several milestones.

On 26 April 2019, URA informed us of approval to redevelop our church and to retain the existing three-storey House of Peniel, as well as the change of use of the land for both 91 and 97 Koon Seng Road from residential to place of worship use, without affecting the property’s freehold status. Praise the Lord!

Construction will begin in August will take 1½ to 2 years. Prior to the re-building of our sanctuary block, Bishop Dr Chong Chin Chung will conduct a service on 7 July 2019.

From 14 July, we will hold our worship services at Living Hope Methodist Church at 20 Tampines Street 33. The first worship service will be in both Mandarin and English, starting at 4pm. From 21 July onwards, these will be our regular worship times:

  • Mandarin Service: 3 to 4.15 p.m. in the Chapel (Level 3).
  • English Service: 4 to 5.30 p.m. in the Sanctuary (Level 2).

The church office will continue operating at 97 Koon Seng Road until further notice. The church office number remains as 6344-5750.

Our 30th anniversary Food and Fun Fair, themed “Celebrating God’s faithfulness: past, present, and future”, will be held on our church premises on 13 July 2019 to raise funds. We hope that Charisians and friends can come together, and commemorate God’s faithfulness and blessings throughout Charis MC’s journey. All are welcome!

We will also be having a Thanksgiving Dinner on 15 Nov.

We still have some ways to go to reach our $2.8 million fund-raising target. If you are moved to give towards our building fund, please refer to accompanying infographic on how to do so. Thank you!

The Rev Jasper Sim is the Pastor-in-charge of Charis Methodist Church.
