TRAC WSCS has a new president

Neo Lay Tin, who has been elected as TRAC WSCS President from 2020–22

The biennial election of office bearers at the annual general meeting (AGM) of the Trinity Annual Conference (TRAC) Women’s Society of Christian Service (WSCS) is usually held at an overseas location. The pandemic changed all norms, resulting in a virtual AGM that was conducted via Zoom on 10 Oct 2020. TRAC President, Bishop-Elect Dr Gordon Wong spoke at the start of the AGM and also at the installation service of elected officers at Pentecost Methodist Church. Speaking on Ephesians 3:14–21 and John 4, he reminded us that Christ must remain the focus of all our activities as we serve in love and through the power of the Holy Spirit.

150 participants attended this 45th AGM. It was not all business during the seven-hour meeting, as there were fun segments and fellowship in breakout rooms, as well as delicious coffee delivered by Ark Coffee.

A highlight of the AGM was the election of a new TRAC WSCS president, Neo Lay Tin, who was Bedok Methodist Church’s local WSCS president (2010–14) and chairperson of its Family Life ministry (2015–19). She was the former Executive Director of Children’s Cancer Foundation and serves on the board of the Parkinson Society Singapore. The ladies look forward to working alongside Lay Tin in the 2020–22 term.

Lay Tin succeeds Choo Lai Eng, who has completed her two terms as president. The ladies give thanks to the Lord for Lai Eng who, with boundless energy, initiated many programmes in TRAC WSCS over the past four years.
