OUR VISION

Encounter

We continuously pursue the
presence of God; we draw from
Him for everything we do.

Everything begins with God,
specifically an encounter with God.
Without Him and His strength, we
may seek and strive to change or to
accomplish much for God, but all
will be for nought.

James 4:8

To

This pursuit births a hunger
to know and fulfil His desires.

Encountering God must lead to
something; we are not pursuing an
encounter for the sake of it. Every
story of an encounter with God has
led to radical transformation.

Love

Our pursuit translates into love,
extended to any and every
person, in what we say and do.

We love because:

  • God is love. Our encounters
    transform us into and to love.
  • Loving God and loving our
    neighbours is the will of God.
  • Loving one another is the
    mark of a disciple of Jesus
    Christ.

1 John 4:8,16; Matthew 22:37-40;
John 13:34-35

WHO WE ARE

Toa Payoh Methodist Church originated from a combined missions outreach project between the Wesley Methodist Church and St Andrew’s Cathedral in 1968. The outreach project started as a free clinic at Block 109, Lorong 1, Toa Payoh. This provided opportunities to share the Gospel with patients who came for treatment. Rev Michael Wong, who was a pastor at Wesley Methodist Church, conducted the first worship service in 1969 with 12 non-Christian patients. With the closing down of the clinic in late 1969, the congregation comprising new converts and some Christians from other Methodist Churches, moved to a shop house at Block 4, Lorong 7 Toa Payoh. In the following year, Rev Michael Wong was officially appointed as the full-time pioneer work pastor.

OUR PASTORS AND TEAM

PASTORS

REV BENJAMIN LEE PASTOR-IN-CHARGE

Rev Benjamin Lee, trained in Engineering in National University of Singapore, worked for Hewlett-Packard’s Consulting Division for 9 years before responding to the call of God for full-time ministry in 2009, entering Trinity Theological College and graduating with a MDiv in 2012. He has since served as a Methodist pastor and is passionate about helping people see God working in their lives. His firm belief is that God has a good, pleasing and perfect plan (Romans 12:2) for everyone, and if we can see that, catch that, and allow God to work in us to bring that about, then we will find that we can live meaningful, purposeful and fulfilled lives. Once we have encountered God, His love will empower us to be able to love.

REV MICHAEL WONG RETIRED PASTOR

Rev Michael Wong is the pioneering pastor for Toa Payoh Methodist Church. He took the leap of faith, trusted God and started God’s work in Toa Payoh. Although he has retired as a pastor in 2003, he has not retired from God’s ministry. The key verse for all seasons that he holds throughout his life is found in Romans 5:1-2, “Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”
