The Sanctuary is a statuesque landmark on Ceylon Road. Its quaint exterior with a belfry, vestry and heavy wooden arched doors date back some 65 years, a throwback to its British colonial origins. Many church members grew up worshipping in the sanctuary. On Sundays the pews are filled with over 170 members engaged in a traditional liturgical service.
You can never miss the sound of lively music coming from the Bethel Hall at 10.00 am every Sunday. Rousing songs from contemporary to inspirational gospel can be heard, sung loudly by some 230 members, the largest service in St Hilda’s by far. There are hints of the charismatic influences of the mid-1980s. This is the service for you if you incline towards spirit-filled worship or waking up early is an issue!
This full-fledged service reaches out to youths, young adults and families of St Hilda’s Church. Sermons are primarily geared towards the young and young parents. E3 is for you if it is contemporary worship that you want and to worship with the young and the young at heart. Worship is heart thumping and filled with the joy of the Spirit!
The Chinese congregation comprises the Hokkien service on Saturdays at 3.00 pm and the Mandarin service on Sundays at 10.30am. It has many activities including the Hope Ministry, Brother Fellowship, the Hospitality Ministry, LoveCOPE, Young Adults, Youth and the Worship Ministry. They hope to incorporate more contemporary songs into the currently traditional form of praise and worship at the service. It is a small but steadily growing congregation of about 150 people.
The fellowship comprises domestic helpers of Church members. They meet twice a month to engage in bible study. The lessons are conducted on the second and fourth Sundays of the month and there is brunch fellowship on every fifth Sunday as well as Easter, Christmas and birthday celebrations.
