General Conference 12th Session

From September 07, 2020 until September 11, 2020 Save to calendar

General Conference 12th Session
7-11 September 2020 (Full Day)

The Methodist Church in Singapore (MCS) will be holding its Twelfth Session of the General Conference (GC) from 7–11 September 2020 and 2–4 December 2020.

This regular session of the GC is held once every 4 years (a quadrennium), where delegates from the three Annual Conferences (CAC, ETAC and TRAC) come together to revise church laws, approve work plans and budgets for church-wide programmes, as well as adopt resolutions on moral and social issues. The GC organises councils and agencies for the general work of MCS, and during the course of its regular session, elections are held for various officers of the GC and of these councils and agencies to serve in the coming quadrennium. This includes the election of a Bishop to oversee the affairs of MCS and the work of the GC.

At its regular session, the GC also receives and debates petitions, which are proposals to make changes to The Book of Discipline (BOD), our rule-book that describes how we are organised and administered as well as our Constitution and Doctrinal Statements and General Rules.

Participation in this GC session is by invitation only.

Things we can pray for:

  • Elections of major office-holders such as the Bishop, and Chairpersons of various Councils that oversee the church's work over the next four years
  • Decisions made on behalf of the MCS, such as matters of church law and policy, including amendments to The Book of Discipline, which are debated and discussed before being accepted
  • Delivery of reports on work done the last four years and the plans for the coming four years and beyond
  • Good health, protection and alertness of the delegates and supporting staff, that the proceedings may be carried out smoothly and thoroughly
