So, what is ABC all about?
ABC stands for Adopt a Block in the Community.
ABC is a long-term commitment to minister to the people living in Bukit Merah, and we are excited to have this opportunity to bring Christmas cheer to the Bukit Merah community this Christmas!
In collaboration with Lifehouse SG, Cathedral is organising two Community Outreach events to spread God’s love to the residents of Bukit Merah on 3 and 10 December 2022.
3rd December 2022
Registration is now closed
What will be happening on 3 December 2022?
We will be packing and distributing 720 Christmas packs across five residential blocks where many are low-income individuals, families and elderly.
What will be in the Christmas Packs?
Christmas goodies and items which the residents have given feedback that are meaningful to them. Each pack is estimated to cost $25.
How can I be involved?
||FULL Prayer Warrior
As a Prayer Warrior, you will cover the households in Bukit Merah with prayer. You will also be provided with prayer pointers to pray for the preparation, execution and all the volunteers from now till the community outreach. You can pray at your own time or gather in groups to pray.
Venue: Self / Groups - Home
As a Packer, you will pack designated gift items into a carrier bag. We need many Packers over 3 shifts to pack 720 Christmas packs. Many hands make light work. Required on 2nd Dec only.
||FULL Muscle Crew
As part of the Muscle Crew, it is time to put those hours at the gym to good use. You will carry the Christmas packs from the Distribution Centre (SAC) to the Transport Team (vehicles) waiting at the pick-up point. At Bukit Merah, we also need another team of Muscle Crew to carry these Christmas packs from the vehicles at the Offloading Point to the Collection Point at the respective blocks. Required for 2nd and 3rd Dec.
Venue: SAC, Bukit Merah
As a Marshal, you will play an important role to ensure safety of all volunteers in SAC, and / or the volunteers, members of public and residents at the blocks at Bukit Merah. You will also facilitate and coordinate the flow of movement of each block’s Delivery Team.
Venue: SAC, Bukit Merah
As part of the Transport Team, you will provide your own vehicle to transport an allocated number of Christmas packs from SAC to the designated offloading point at Bukit Merah. We welcome any vehicle – sedan, 7-seater, van or bigger truck (covered).
Venue: from SAC to Bukit Merah
As part of the Delivery Team, you will collect the Christmas packs from your respective Block ICs and deliver them door-to-door to the designated households in the block. This role requires a fair amount of walking. We will provide a guide that you may use when you meet the residents. As you interact with the residents, we seek your understanding to comply with the latest Do’s and Don’t’s which will be shared during the briefings.
Venue: Bukit Merah
If you wish to bless the residents in other ways, please reach out to us by emailing the ABC Team at email@example.com, or WhatsApp 8824 2660.
