LIVING OUT OUR HOPE IN CHRIST
WITH EVERY LIFE IN HIS S.T.O.R.Y.
Early in 1989, the vision of planting a church was conceived when a group of Wesleyans met regularly for bible study in Tampines. This vision resonated with the Trinity Annual Conference and in August 1989, the Tampines Outreach Project (TOP) was birthed.
In January 1991, the first Sunday service was conducted at St Georges’ Chapel. By November, TOP was approved as a local church and was named Tampines Methodist Church with 42 adult members.
In 2001, after seeking the Lord for direction, the leaders renamed the church Living Hope Methodist Church (LHMC). The Church was blessed with a piece of land at Tampines Street 33 and upon the completion of the church building, the members of LHMC finally found their permanent home in December 2004.
Today LHMC has a membership of over 350, with one English and one Mandarin cum Hokkien Worship Service running every Sunday.
The vision of LHMC is to be a people “living out our Hope in Christ” and the way we accomplish this is through placing “every life in His S.T.O.R.Y.“.
We seek to serve our community through our outreach to East Spring Primary School, St Luke’s Eldercare Changkat, Care Corner Tampines, Changi Prison, as well as through praying for the sick. We also partner the Methodist Missions Society, to bring Hope to Song Roi Phee Methodist Centre, an outreach work just outside Bangkok, Thailand.
We desire to be a people who embrace the Hope that Christ has given to us and it is our prayer that we will live out that Hope in our interaction with our world, thereby inspiring change in our world.
