Charis Methodist Church
Here is All About the Changi Methodist Church
The Changi Methodist Church was once the Geylang Chinese Methodist Church’s preaching center. The inaugural service was at Chong Nan School on Joo Chiat Road. Two years later, pioneering work on Chai Chee started, and the name was changed to Chai Chee Preaching Point. In 1979, the Chai Chee Preaching Point Working Committee filed to organize a local conference on October 4 and formally formed on October 21, 1979.
The Origins of the Church:
Charis Methodist Church (Charis) originated as the Methodist Youth Fellowship of Geylang Chinese Methodist Church. Establishment of Charis as an autonomous church within the Methodist Church’s China Annual Conference in Singapore in 1989. On January 1, 1989, the English congregation became autonomous and renamed itself Charis Methodist Church. Rosalind Goh met the late Dr. Benjamin Chew, an elder of the Bethesda Katong Church, who called his house “Charis” when she was a young woman.
He later discovered that “Charis” meant “God’s grace.” She entered this name in a church naming contest since we have seen God’s blessings and outpouring of His grace over the years.
