Singapore

Singapore is an island city-state with a population of approximately 5.5 million – an average of 7,700 people per square km (in Australia it’s 3 people per square km!). 

Of these 1.5 million are short-term foreign workers – predominantly from other countries in the region including Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia, Myanmar and the Philippines. The 4 million citizens and permanent residents consist most of ethnic Chinese (mostly Buddhist, Taoist and/or secular humanist), ethnic Malay (mostly Muslim), and ethnic Tamils (mostly Hindu). 

Singapore has had a healthy and well-resourced church over recent decades which has been particularly effective engaging with the English-speaking, university educated Chinese population. The Singapore church has a strategic vision for her role as ‘the Antioch of Asia’ and a has a passionate commitment to various expressions of mission in the region.

Scott and Sarah are located in Singapore with a vision for unreached people groups and communities exploring the Bible and beginning the discipleship journey in the context of their own relational networks. In addition to their personal prayer and involvement in the harvest, they are partnering with like-minded churches and groups from across the Body of Christ to see teams established, equipped and empowered to be and make disciples that multiply throughout their communities, and into the nations.

Local Missions Workshop

May 4th and 11th

How can we better communicate and partner with God as we connect with people from other backgrounds?

The Local Missions workshop will help you unlock natural connections between God’s Kingdom and the culture of the harvest field. We will explore where God has placed you through group processing of Scripture, personal reflection and targeted input from practitioners.

Facilitated by Praxeis, this interactive workshop runs for 1.5 days over two Saturdays.

 

Modules:

Module 1 – The Gospel

We wrestle with the relationship between the Gospel we’re used to hearing, the Gospel that Jesus proclaimed, and the broader story of God throughout the Bible. Get ready for some profound discoveries hidden in plain sight!

 

Module 2 – The Kingdom of God & Culture

Building on the broader narrative of Scripture, we trace the relationship between God’s Kingdom and religious culture through the Old Testament and New Testament. We explore how this might apply to us as Christians in the 21st century.

 

Module 3 – Kingdom Bridges to Your Context
In this module we will draw on what we’ve learned from Scripture to enable us to partner more effectively in God’s work in our own communities and in the harvest around us. 

We will zoom in on our individual and corporate contexts, workshopping the implications of what we have learnt for our personal discipleship journey and how we relate to the harvest, and identifying concrete next steps.

 

Timing:

Saturday May 4th, 9am-5pm (Modules 1 & 2)

Saturday May 11th, 9am-1pm (Module 3)

Testimonials from past participants:

“The workshop gave me a better understanding of what it really means to be a believer of Jesus Christ. I learnt about Jesus’ ways of making God’s kingdom known and engaging the lost, the importance of spirit-led prayer, and how to engage people of other cultures and beliefs from a common ground.”  – SP

“I realised the gospel and mission is so influenced by church culture, which explained my dissonance about the current state of evangelism in church.  I appreciated going back to God’s word and what he says about the gospel and extension of his kingdom.”  – LT

“I found the Local Mission Workshop very enlightening. It helped me become more sensitive and respectful toward the mindset and values of other cultural groups. I learnt to identify people’s spiritual hunger and seek to understand the motivation behind their traditions and cultural practices. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone who has a desire to reach families or friends in another cultural group with the gospel.”  – TT

As disciple-makers we have a number of challenges.  One challenge is how to be spiritual people. Many cultures around the world have experienced Christianity and had some form of institutional Christianity in society. The secular world knows our ‘rules’ and many have experienced forms of judgement. And people have been turned off Jesus by ‘r...Read More

I glanced happily at the empty seat next to me on the plane. I was tired, it was 11:30pm, and I was getting on an international flight. I was looking forward to at least attempting to get some sleep. With my height, that is wishful thinking, but not having a neighbour increased the odds marginally. Just before the doors closed, Su sat dow...Read More
