Christian Education is the Bible-based, Holy Spirit-empowered Teaching-Learning process, through which the church community is taught and equipped to grow in the knowledge and love of God, and be discipled to obey His commandments and His ways.
The purpose is to present everyone mature in Christ (Col 1:28; Eph 4:13) so that God is glorified in every aspect of the Christian's life. It encompasses more than Bible Knowledge as it is a wholistic education of the individual that includes Christian Living and Christian Spirituality.

In 2023, the rhythm of studies/equipping entails the following:




Tues (night)

Thurs (night)

The Contemplative Prayer Retreat is a tailor-made retreat for personal time out, away from the hustle and bustle of life, in order to be alone with God. The time of silence and solitude is so that we can listen in to hear for ourselves, the God who dwells among us.

This retreat is a Beginners’ 3-day Teaching Retreat. Basic biblical teachings regarding Meditation, Prayer and Contemplation will be taught each day. A typical day begins with Morning Chapel, followed by personal reflection time in the morning and afternoon. The day will end with a corporate time of Recollection before bed. Retreat will conclude with Corporate Reflection and Communion.

Baptism Courses : For Children  /  For Youth / Adults

Baptism Course  For Youth / Adults
Baptism is one of the most significant milestones in a believer’s walk with God. It is a public declaration of our faith in Jesus Christ (cf. Acts 2:38) and is administered in obedience to the Lord’s instruction (Matt 28:19).

Confirmation Course
Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which you affirm for yourself the faith into which you have been baptised and your intention to live a life of committed discipleship. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming Bishop. The Church also prays for you to be empowered by the Holy Spirit, to live in the way of Jesus.

The Cathedral Confirmation-Membership Course is for:

  • Those seeking confirmation / membership in St Andrew’s Cathedral.
  • Those baptised and currently attending church services regularly at St Andrew’s Cathedral for at least 6 months.

Note:  If you were baptised before 14 years old, you are required to attend the Baptism course before you join the Confirmation-membership course. This will cover the foundations of life as a Christian. After completion of the course, you will not be required to go through the rite of baptism again but may proceed straight to the Confirmation course.

All lessons, Baptism Service, Confirmation Retreat and Confirmation Service will be conducted onsite.

Who do you say I am?
“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”
Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven” (Mt 16:15,16).

Many of us go through life unsure of our true identity. From young we have been influenced by how others see us or expect us to be or how we like to be. God however has created us with our own identity. Our God-given identity is a sacred identity unique to ourselves and it is through this identity that we are to live our life to the fullest on earth. The book, The Gift of Being Yourself by David Benner seeks to help us on a journey of self-discovery to know our true self as God created us to be. The book helps us to identify the obstacles and how to overcome them in our journey of self-discovery.

Facilitator’s Profile
Rev Soon has spent the last 46 years since his ordination in the pastoral ministry in a number of parishes in the Diocese of Singapore. He finds it a great joy to help believers develop a deeper and richer relationship with Christ and to grow in living out their authentic self given to them by God. He believes that God intends our life to blossom spiritually and emotionally so that we can be a witness to the incarnate presence of Christ in our community..
