Presidents’ Greetings 2024


Rev Stanley Chua
President, Trinity Annual Conference

As we bid farewell to the past year and welcome the dawn of a new one, I want to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude to God for his grace and mercy on all of us. I echo the words of the psalmist in Psalm 124 (NIV) where he says, “If the Lord had not been on our side … the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us, the raging waters would have swept us away … Praise be to the Lord, who has not let us be torn … Our help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” Praise the Lord indeed!

In this new year, I pray that it will be a time of renewed faith, abundant blessings and profound spiritual growth for each one of us. I pray also that our good Lord will continue to watch over us. May the love of Christ continue to guide us in all our endeavours, and may his light illuminate our path as we seek to be a beacon of hope and love in our community and our world. Wishing you and your loved ones a joyous and blessed New Year filled with peace, prosperity and an unwavering faith that carries us through any storm. Glory be to God!


Rev Dr Gregory Goh Nai Lat
President, Chinese Annual Conference

2023 was a year of drastic change and unexpected events. The impact of wars, inflation, natural disasters and more, have affected the relationships between countries, groups and individuals. When we look around us, there are many pressing needs both locally and overseas. As God’s people, we are called to be ambassadors of Christ, to be salt and light in the community and to be peacemakers to a fragmented society. We need to have a strong sense of urgency to do God’s work: to bring the gospel, healing and restorative work to people in need.

As we enter 2024, let us continue to draw near to God, work together in fulfilling the Great Commission, carry out justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our Lord. May God’s goodness and love follow you and your household wherever you may be. Blessed New Year!


Rev Philip Abraham
President, Emmanuel Tamil Annual Conference

We praise God for graciously giving us another new year. We are truly thankful to him. Looking at the current issues of the world, we are going through terrible and uncertain times. As disciples of Jesus, it is our duty to intercede daily for peace and unity in our world.

Whatever the circumstances may be, Jesus has promised us, just as he promised his disciples in Matthew 28:20, “And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Through the Holy Spirit, we can be sure that God is with us. Therefore, as we step into this new year, his sustenance will allow us to live as God’s representatives on earth-to be witnesses in all circumstances.

Wishing you and your family a meaningful, hopeful and fruitful 2024!
