On 3 Sep 2020, His Excellency Mr Sagi Karni, the Ambassador of the State of Israel to Singapore, paid a courtesy visit to Bishop Dr Chong Chin Chung at the headquarters of The Methodist Church in Singapore, where he was given a short tour of our Heritage Centre.
The Ambassador was introduced to The Methodist Church in Singapore, our 46 churches and 44,000 members to the work we are doing in the community and beyond, including our 15 schools and the almost 12,000 people we help under the auspices of the Methodist Welfare Society.
A fruitful discussion followed and Ambassador Karni presented Bishop Dr Chong with a book commemorating 50 years of Israel–Singapore diplomatic relations, whilst we presented him with a set of classical Chinese calligraphy of the Shema, taken from Deuteronomy 6:4–5, and a model of Wesley Methodist Church.
It was a great privilege to have received His Excellency and we look forward to carrying on the conversation and strengthening our ties further.
