About The Methodist Church in Singapore MCS
"I hope that the Methodist spirit of Social Holiness will be strong and convincing. That our giving will be a message of invitation to the poor and needy to receive the richest love and grace; and of empowerment to help them to live life to the full. That the destitute will no longer be forgotten but cherished. In this way, through our actions, and not just our words, the world may recognise the character of Jesus Christ."
Gather and galvanize Methodists to perform acts of love.
The Giving Methodist campaign involves 4-5 weeks of intensive and focused engagement with Methodists across conferences and churches.
