The Bahasa Indonesia (BI) Service started its first service on 5 February 2006. The main purpose of having this service is to reach out to fellow Indonesians in Singapore and to nurture every believer to spiritual maturity for service to the world. Currently, our Indonesian service is attended mostly by Indonesians/Malaysians young families who work and live in Singapore. We welcome all believers from any Christian backgrounds and theological persuasions to join our service and to contribute into it. As a part of the larger Anglican communion, we believe the Holy Bible, as contained in the 66 Book of the Old and New Testaments, to be the highest and supreme authority in matters of faith. It contains all things necessary for salvation, “so that whatsoever is not read therein, nor may be proved thereby, is not to be required of any man, that it should be believed as an article of the Faith, or be thought requisite or necessary to salvation” (39 Articles of Religion). We also read the Apocrypha “for example of life and instruction of manners,” not so much to establish doctrine. We endeavour to synthesize a form of worship in a contemporary vernacular style within which everyone will recognize something of their past experience.
Sunday Services and Cell Group Meetings
We meet every Sunday from 2.30 to 4 pm at Classroom A (Level B2), St. Andrew’s Cathedral. Our cell group meetings are conducted fortnightly before the service from 1.15 pm to 2.15 pm, while our prayer meetings are conducted once a month on Friday from 8 to 10 pm in various member home locations.
Holy Communion is celebrated every 2nd Sunday of the month and is open to all confirmed members of the Anglican Church. Visitors who are communicant members in their own churches are also welcome to join us in Holy Communion.
