On 28 February, a group of 40 members from Newcastle church, UK, arrived in Singapore in the afternoon. They stopped over for 3 days before embarking on a cruise that would take them past Thailand and Vietnam to Hong Kong which was their end point.
As planned, the Singapore Coordination Board arranged for a bus and some of our members to take the visiting brethren for
breakfast at 9am before going to Chinatown for a short tour. After trying out some of our local delicacies, the group arrived at Adam Road church at 2.30pm to join our members for the Sabbath afternoon service and Holy Communion. Some of our members who have studied or worked in the UK in the past were familiar with some of our UK members, especially Preacher Chin Aun Quek and his wife who had pastored the church in Newcastle for more than 10 years. Everyone was delighted to meet with familiar faces and stayed behind after service for conversation and photos. Following that, the group reluctantly left the church to continue their night tour of Singapore.
Over the next 2 days, a bus was hired to take the members to Sentosa, the Botanic Gardens, Bugis, and finally to the
cruise centre where they concluded their time in Singapore.
