A January Update

By Terry Wong

AGM 2018 is scheduled for 22nd of April. In preparation for that, we hope to organise one or two Town Hall Meetings. The first will be on the 25th of February at 2pm at the Cafe. We hope to look at a few issues, including how we may welcome foreigners who visit our grounds every Sunday and other areas of concern for the wider SAC community. A Town Hall meeting allows for feedback, information and discussions on issues that those who gather have interest in. We will announce the issues to be discussed as soon as we are able. If you feel certain issues need to be raised at these meetings, please email Vivien Chen at vivienchen@cathedral.org.sg.

SAC leaders will be gathered next weekend to pray and discuss around SAC’s “three-year Vision,” 2018-2020. When leaders stand together, heart to heart, any church will grow to be a strong one. Such a conference will help ministries Cathedral-wide to move in tandem together. When leaders know each other personally, partnership and synergy becomes possible. Indeed, each participant will get to know a few more who are serving in the same vineyard. These friendships are always precious in the Lord’s work.

I had a very good and fruitful meeting with the leaders from our Myanmar Worship Service (MWS) last Sunday. They hope to conduct health-checks for the foreigners on our grounds on a regular basis. This will be done in cooperation with SAC Medical Missions and the wider SAC family. There is currently one English class conducted between 11am to 1pm every Sunday. If you would like to help with this, please contact Moses Israeli at mosesisraeli@cathedral.org.sg. They have also started educating their members on how to keep the grounds clean and from there, also communicate the same to foreigners. Plans are also afoot to communicate to them to use restroom facilities outside of our grounds as our toilet facilities are limited and barely able to cope with the needs of worshippers every Sunday. Finding a balance of welcome, discipline and order is always a challenge, and we appreciate MWS’s help in this.
