Do you have friends who need to hear the gospel message? Celebration of Hope is one opportunity for you to bring your friends. We will be joining other Singaporean Christians for this national event. The desire is for personal evangelism on a mass scale, culminating in gospel rallies at the National Stadium on 17 - 19 May 2019. So do prayerfully consider inviting your non-Christian friends. Extra invitation postcards are available from the ushers, the church office, or from Pastor Ollie.

There are no physical tickets, so those interested in going, please register at https://celebrationofhope.sg/ for free E-tickets. More information is available on this website. Although all tickets have been currently reserved for the two English Rallies, more unconfirmed tickets will be released for those on the wait-list in the next two weeks. So please reserve your tickets and be placed on the wait-list if you need tickets.

We invite you to continue to pray for the friends you have invited or intend to invite. We have the COH prayer pamphlets available for your use. Please collect from the ushers. We shall also be gathering today, 12 May 2019 in GBC at Room 310 C & D from 11.00 am to 12.00 noon to pray for our non-Christian friends we are inviting and for the event. All are invited to join us for this time of prayer.
