The position of Christian sisters in the church is very
important. Why do we say this? A Christian wife and mother plays
a crucial role in the family. She would pray for her family,
encourage her husband and together with him, bring up their
children in a Godly way. But sometimes she would do all this on
her own without any support. This is where fellowship with other
Christian sisters becomes useful and indispensable, as they
could encourage one another, share one another¡¦s problem and
The Chinese Ladies¡¦ Fellowship was first started in 1999 by a
few dedicated members of the congregation. The meeting was held
once a month in a sister¡¦s house. The meeting was later moved to
the church as the attendance gradually increases. At a later
date, a committee was formed which include a chair person a
The content of the meeting includes prayers,
spiritual sharing, discussion, testimonies, bible study quizzes,
hymns appreciation and video display. For each of these meetings
much preparation has gone into it. The meeting is chaired by
members, taking turns. Sometimes outside speakers are invited to
give short talks.

After each meeting members stay behind and have their lunch.
Meanwhile members continue their fellowship with one another.
For the meal, different dishes are prepared by certain members
on a rota basis. An outing or barbeque is usually organized in
June or July. Christmas celebrations and Chinese New Year
celebrations take place in December and February respectively.
n this year, committee members were re-elected. The meetings continue to
take place on every second Thursday of each month from 10:30 to
noon, followed by lunch and a time for sharing.
Looking back in all these years, we have found that many who had
come to the Ladies Fellowship became Christians. Others have
their faith rekindled. Some sisters have developed special
bonding with each another so that they can share their feelings
at more depth and have become prayer partners.
We hope more ladies from our congregation will join us in
this friendly and enjoyable fellowship. It is even better if
they can bring more friends along.
