Jurong Tamil Methodist Church
Information You Need To Know About Jurong Tamil Methodist Church
The modest beginnings of Jurong Tamil Methodist Church date back to 1975. Under the devote leadership of Mr and Mrs JCD Pandian, it was one of the daughter churches of Tamil Methodist Church (Short Street), given priority in Jurong residential neighbourhood to planted for ministry in Jurong Tamil Methodist Church. Weekly worship services and prayer meetings held at their home.
After two years, The Jurong Tamil Methodist Church was legally established in 1977 with 35 members to serve as God’s lighthouse in the western area of Singapore. Its replacement pastor was named Mr JCD Pandian. A people accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior through the church’s outreach work. They underwent baptism and admitted into the church’s membership. In 1979, the church had 53 members. Rev. D. Premkumar served as the church’s full-time pastor in 1981. The membership had risen to 72 by that point. Men, WSCS, MYF, and Sunday School all worked extremely hard. Mr Philip Abraham, a member youth group, quit his job and began serving at the full-time point. He served various ETAC Churches as a pastor after completing education at TTC. He is a blessing for JTMC, which resulted in the hiring of a full-time pastor.
Our pioneers Mr Philip Paul, John Peters, Christopher, Abraham Paul, Durairaj, Rev. Philp Abraham, Rev Prabu Dass Roberts, and Pastor Pandian, launched our modest beginning of Methodist Men’s work in 1997. They were working at Blk 134 of Taman Jurong, which is no longer there, gathering souls to start our Methodist Men.
At least once a week throughout workdays, our pioneers gather to strategize for expansion. Taman Jurong, Boon Lay, Teban, and Pandan Gardens were all overrun by their feet. They visited homes without knowing if any members were home because there were no mobile phones and few households had telephones.
Our Sunday School session is held from 2:00 to 3:15 and welcomes children up to age 12.
