In The Beginning…
Seletar Tamil Methodist Church moved to St George’s Chapel in Changi as our new place of worship in 2005. While looking for opportunities to reach out to the community, we realised that there was a need for Tamil ministry in the Bedok and Tampines areas, as we increasingly had visitors from these areas.
During this time, Bishop Emeritus Dr Robert Solomon encouraged the congregation to consider a preaching point in these areas. Soon, he also put us in contact with the leaders of Bethesda (Bedok-Tampines) Church, who graciously welcomed us to use the premises to reach out to the Indian community. The ministry officially began on 6 May 2012 at Bethesda (Bedok-Tampines) Church.
Worship Service, Sunday School and Fellowship
Sunday services are held weekly at 6 pm, followed by a time of fellowship with dinner. About 40 people attend the worship service regularly and some of them have become members of the church. We also have regular Sunday school for children aged between 5 to 12.
Faithful volunteers from Seletar Tamil Methodist Church and Bedok Preaching Point come every week to serve in this ministry. A team is constantly involved in Outreach Ministry (Block Visitation). Every Wednesday from 7.30 p.m. to 9.00 p.m., we walk up the nearby blocks looking out for Indian homes. We knock on their doors, introduce ourselves and present them with details of our church. We also present them with a mug that carries information about the church, and offer a time of prayer for those who are open to receive such blessings.
The team has visited more than 200 Indian families in Bedok. Once a month, we have a prayer walk around the areas that we are planning to visit.
God makes way for us even as we pray for opportunities to share the gospel.
Join Our Bedok Preaching Point Family
God has clearly blessed our ministry in Bedok Preaching Point (BPP). This is evident from the shear increase in number of members who are attending BPP evening service. Come join us and be part of our family as we rejoice in the Lord.
