U Matters

This week, I reunited with a  wise friend who is a retired senior banker. He was part of the church I served in England and was a member of Union for several years. One of his friends had just died, with articles and obituaries in all the financial papers. I asked my friend what his friend was really like. "He was all about relationships."

What a great way to be remembered. Christianity is all about a relationship with Christ. But sometimes in the hustle and bustle of a lively church, we forget it is all about relationships. We are so thankful for the chance to share life and ministry with you. May our wonderful programs continue to thrive. But this year, let's put our priority on the relationship we have with Jesus and with each other.

Building Union for the Future Update

The BUFF team continues to work on improving the design of our new church. However, they are working under various technical constraints and the process is time consuming. This, together with the proposed renovation of Golden Centre (our proposed temporary accommodation), means that we expect to remain at our Kennedy Road premises until June 2016. Please continue to pray that God’s will be done. If you have any questions, please contact Kay Ian Ng.
