Agape Methodist Church was birthed out of prayer and a vision to reach Jurong heartlanders with the good news of God’s love. This started as a Grassroots Ministry initiated by Faith Methodist Church in the 1980s to reach the blue-collar Mandarin-speaking workers in the community. In 1993, this Grassroots Ministry became the Mandarin Ministry of the Jurong Preaching Point. Mandarin worship services were first held in the home of one of its members before moving to a bomb shelter. In December 1998, garbed with a mission to disciple all persons to Christlikeness, Jurong Preaching Point launched the English Worship Service and proceeded to move all its services to the cinema halls of Boon Lay Golden Village at Jurong Point Shopping Centre. Since then, it also included the Children and Youth programs to cater to the needs of its members.
On 4 December 2005, Agape Methodist Church was formally constituted as a Local (Church) Conference of the Trinity Annual Conference of The Methodist Church in Singapore. From its humble beginnings comprising an initial core group of pioneer volunteer workers and their families, Agape Methodist Church now has a regular weekly attendance of about three hundred adults, youth and children each Sunday.
Members are continually challenged and equipped to serve in the various ministries and to reach out to their friends, relatives, associates and neighbours through its outreach programs. Besides the Sunday fellowship, Christian community is also experienced in small groups that meet either weekly or fortnightly. Agape Methodist Church believes that people are won to Christ when Christians make a difference in their lives. Touching lives by serving the community is our business!
