Danish Seamens Church in Singapore

Guide About Danish Seamen’s Church in Singapore (DSCS)

The Danish Seamen’s Church gets established in Singapore in 1984. It belongs to DSUK, Danish Seamen’s and Foreign Churches, which strives to represent the Danish National Church for Danes who reside abroad to work or study, are here on vacation, and for the seamen who are arriving at this port.

About The Church

The Danish Seamen’s Church in Singapore (DSCS) first co-located with the Norwegian and Swedish churches before discovering The Golden Bell Mansion in 1985, which is now home to the church. The stunning brick edifice gets initially constructed for Tan Boo Liat, one of Singapore wealthiest and most influential individuals. Tan Boo Liat named the residence Tan Kim Ching in observance of a Chinese custom to honor his grandpa Tan Kim Ching and his forebears. Kim Ching, which translates to Golden Bell in Mandarin, was the only name given to the structure when it gets constructed with a Buddhist stupa, or little dome, at the top of the tower. This gold-leafed dome gets covered in the building even for many years.

In 2010, in conjunction with the Danish Seamen’s Church in Singapore (DSCS) 25th anniversary, the book The Golden Bell, which chronicles the church history starting in 1985, was published. The book is available purchasing in the church kiosk for 20 S $. The church features two genuine golden bells in addition to its name; One is on the wall at the entrance, and the other is on the belfry outside the building. Each bell is associated with a tale.

Service of Worship

A service gets held every Sunday, followed by a small gathering and food. The Sunday liturgy proceeds in the same manner as it does in the Danish national church. Danish hymns from the Danish hymnal get sung during the service, which includes Bible readings and communion.

Church Council

Along with the Seamen’s Priest, the Church Council is in charge of hiring church personnel, defining the tone for its events, and overseeing its finances. Running for church council or casting a vote at the annual general meeting are two ways you can impact the church operations. Only Danish Seamen’s Church members in Singapore are eligible to vote. Approximately eight times per year, the church council meets. Eight people make up the current church council, in addition to the ex officio sailor pastor and a representative of the Danish Embassy in Singapore.

Locate the Church

Bus, MRT (metro), or taxi

It could be simpler to take a taxi to the sailor church if you are unfamiliar with buses and trains. In Singapore, taxis are reasonably priced. It can be helpful to explain that you are going to Mount Faber to any drivers you encounter if they do not know the address. Telok Blangah Road is a side road to Telok Bender Road, which gets a side road to Pender Road.

The two closest MRT stations are Telok Blangah and HarbourFront, and a quarter-hour walk will get you to the church from any one of them. Walk up Pender Road and Morse Road from Telok Blangah Road.
