Aldersgate SG 2022

For the first time after two years of pandemic restrictions, the Aldersgate SG Celebration Service was conducted in-person at Ang Mo Kio Methodist Church on 21 May 2022, with over 400 members of the Methodist community in attendance. The service was also live-streamed.

Aldersgate SG is the annual keynote event of The Methodist Church in Singapore to celebrate our Wesleyan heritage—an annual commemoration of the day John Wesley experienced assurance of his salvation and felt his heart “strangely warmed”.

The theme this year is Love God by Loving Our Enemy. With reference to the story of The Good Samaritan, Bishop Dr Gordon Wong spoke about an earlier story of two neighbours that became enemies—Israel and Judah.

Sharing from 2 Chronicles 28:8-15, Bishop Dr Wong challenged the congregation to consider our neighbours that Jesus would want us to show love to.
