CHRIST Methodist Church is hosting a successful Breakfast Evangelism programme. It has been a year since the programme was launched on July 6, 2002.
Organised by its Hokkien Ministry, it is an all-church project, supported by members of the three congregations – English, Cantonese and Hokkien.
The objective is to provide a “non-threatening” approach to draw non-Christian loved ones and friends of church members to church every Saturday from 9 am to 11 am.
It is hoped that through socialising in a church environment, the guests will be gradually exposed to the Christian faith and in God’s time they will eventually decide for themselves to accept Jesus as their personal Saviour.
When the first meal was hosted on July 6, 2002, 82 guests turned up. Today, about 80 guests continue to turn up.
To facilitate interaction, they are seated according to the dialect or language they are most comfortable with – Hokkien, Cantonese, English and Mandarin.
Breakfast begins after an exchange of greetings and a prayer. After their meal, they are entertained to popular songs, and are invited to sing choruses and hymns.
The highlight of the programme is the screening of VCD testimonies of lives dramatically changed by the salvation and love of God.
