Today's Message

True giving is like rain on a parched land. It is quickly sucked in by the dry, shrivelled ground and the rain gives it life. The rain quenches an unquenchable thirst. Thank You, Father God, for the gift of Your Son. Once, when we were dry, You sent down Your Son, and He has given us life. Teach us, LORD, to be a giver like You. Put in us the spirit to give as did the poor widow with the two copper coins. Let us give and serve with Your reflected grace that everyone may know of Your greatness and love for them. In the name of Christ Jesus, amen.

St Hilda’s Church. 83rd Anniversary

17 November 2017
by Vicar Wong Tak Meng

Today, the Church remembers Hilda of Whitby (c. 614-680), the princess who became a refugee, who became a mother of faith, the advocate for education, the encourager of young shepherd-poet Caedmon, the carer of the sick and needy, the promoter of harmony and the founder of communities of the faithful until her final breath.

GLORY


One Thought – A Devotional
ST HILDAS CHURCH 83rd ANNIVERSARY

19 November 2017

Let me share the following thoughts as we celebrate our 83rd anniversary. Our vision is that through Christ we serve the COMMUNITY as a beacon of FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE. This vision is still unfolding. We have not yet arrived. How do we continue to be true to this vision ?

We recount with gratefulness our past heritage. We thank God for sowing into the heart of Archdeacon Graham White that SHC will be a place for worship, church and education.

Amidst limited resources and war, the premises gave rise to buildings that were used for these purposes. It was not the physical building that was the substance of the work. It was the countless number of children, teenagers and adults who heard the gospel and received an education. These people cut across socio-economic backgrounds, race and religion. We thank God for the many workers, both laity and clergy, who served.

Today we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us.

Paul reminds us to ”Remember your leaders, those who spoke the word of God to you; consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.” Hebrews 13:7

Let us keep on track with the work that has been started. How do we do it?

“Instead, as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; for it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy.’” 1 Peter 1:15-17

It is a call to guard our hearts. This is to first love God with all our heart, mind and soul. It is about believing God’s Word and then to follow them.

When our heart is right with God, we experience the joy of doing His work. SHC is especially engaged in providing medical and educational assistance both in Singapore and overseas. This is an integral part of the gospel but not the essence.

The essence of the gospel is still bringing the message of God’s love, repentance and salvation through Christ, and to prepare for His return. Let us never lose sight of these.
