Faith Methodist Church was founded in 1966 as a Methodist Chapel to serve the residents of Queenstown. Back then, worship services were conducted in open air and later, a temporary shed.
In 1967, Faith’s founding Pastor, the late Rev T.C. Nga and his team saw to the completion of Faith’s church building, which we have since shared with Queenstown Chinese Methodist Church. Faith Methodist Church was named in honour of God’s faithfulness throughout the project, and in memory of Faith Goh, the only daughter of Dr Goh & Mrs Goh Kok Kee, who were gracious donors to the church building fund.
Through God’s faithfulness, Faith’s membership grew and the church facilities became inadequate to meet her congregational needs. The church building was then redeveloped from 2002 – 2003.
Today, the church building houses a 1000-seat Sanctuary, 800-seat Worship Hall, and various ministry spaces, as well as a kindergarten, library, columbarium, and two parking floors. The building is also equipped with lifts and ramps to cater to seniors and the mobility-challenged. From her 38 attendees in 1966, Faith is now a congregation some 2,500 strong.
Outside her walls, community outreach and missions is at the heart of Faith, from the setting up of Lakeside Family Centre (now Lakeside Family Services), Jurong Preaching Point (now Agape Methodist Church) , and community service agency FaithActs, to active involvement in international missions. By God’s grace, Faith is still transforming lives and changing the world for Him after more than five decades.
