Kum Yan MC: 100 Years in Thanks

May 2018    

This year, 2018, marks a significant milestone for Kum Yan Methodist Church (KYMC) as we celebrate the church’s centennial. Our tagline – “感恩百年,百年感恩” (100 years of Thanksgiving) – gives glory to God for His faithfulness.

The centennial was celebrated joyously on 4 Mar 2018 with a thanksgiving service and dinner, bringing together the English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Children, Youth and Woodlands congregations. We remembered and honoured God for leading a small group of Christian teachers from China to Singapore a century ago, to take up positions as the Principal and teachers of Yeung Ching School in Chinatown.

These pioneer teachers found that many early Cantonese migrants to Singapore did not know Christ, so they started Cantonese worship services at their school. Little did they know that their small gathering would grow to become the KYMC of today, with over 1,200 members worshipping in various languages in Singapore’s civic centre.

“God has continued to build on this foundation of reaching out to the Cantonese-speaking community 100 years ago. He has given us a deeper understanding of His heart and a larger vision for our individual and corporate participation in the Great Commission, leading us further afield in obedience to His call. Today, we support more than 20 mission workers serving locally and in countries in East Asia, East Timor, and Europe.”

KYMC strives to be a caring community, a lighthouse, and a home in the city, bringing hope and purpose to all peoples of all ages through a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.  As a contemporary, family-oriented church, we are also dedicated to nurturing and equipping believers for ministry in the church and in world missions, both now and in the generations to come.
