Here’s what you missed at TPC Day 2016!

The People’s Challenge (TPC) Day was a family event filled with fun, laughter and unity as we took a journey down memory lane and reminisced about the old kampong times. Our TPC Day 2016 was held at D’Kranji Farm Resort and members were split into groups. The groups then embarked on the The People’s Challenge where station games awaited them.

Here’s an overview of the stations!

Station 1

D Kranji Bird Nest Museum

We began the activities with a nice stroll at the Swiftlet Garden Museum. It was an educational tour filled with the history of bird’s nest and how the emperors in China admired and treasured bird’s nest as a precious trading commodity in the olden times. This session also showcased how bird’s nest is usually being produced, harvested and processed. We even had some complimentary snacks! Yum.

Station 2

TPC Day Station 2

To encourage unity and team work in our games, we came up with a unique creative idea to encourage teamwork among the participants. Each team nominated a member, who would wait outside the room, whilst the rest work together to draw out an image of the given word.

TPC Day Station 2

Each of the members had to hold a string attached to a marker and maneuver the strings together in order to draw the image. Teamwork, check!

Station 3

TPC Day Station 3a

The last stations saw the groups complete series of activities as a group. First up, the smelling game. Teams were given cups with different mixtures of beverages/liquid and they had to take turns to take a sniff of what’s in the cup. Together, the team had to conclude on which beverage/liquid is in the cup.

Oh dear it must have been awful...

Teams also had to complete miscellaneous challenges such as balancing an orange while doing squats and folding paper planes.

 The People’s Challenge (Final Station)

Bingo time

Finally, the highlight of our TPC Day, The People’s Challenge! This was similar to a game of Bingo but done the TPC way and #RunningManStyle.

A sheet of paper was placed on the table with 25 boxes drawn on the piece of mahjong paper. There were 27 items placed in a long table by which each team can choose 25 dishes out of the 27 given.

Team members can place the dishes in the boxes in any order they like. Each team will take turns to call out a dish of their choice. When the team gets one line cleared, they were to shout: AMEN, PRAISE THE LORD! The first team that cleared 2 lines won the game. Simple game but everyone had loads of fun!

Traditional Games Championship

To cap the amazing day, we set up our very own “Mama Shop”. This mini shop had traditional games; from pick-up sticks, to chapteh, to five stones, to card games like old maid, snap and happy family and even the all-time favourite eraser flag game! This really brought us back to our childhood days and gave the children a taste of how our childhood was like.

At 2pm that day, we had our very own Traditional Games Championship where the young and old gathered together to take part and compete against each other. We had country eraser corner, chapteh corner and even the five stones corner. It was amazing to see that the children knew how to play these traditional games!

See below for all our championship winners! More pictures can be found in our Facebook album for TPC day 2016.

Margaret Seaword during Easter Sunday Sermon

Intercessory Prayer with Rev Dr Margaret Seaward

“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.

Matthew 18:19

Prayer is an essential communication with our Heavenly Father and an act of trusting in Him as we cast our weaknesses at the feet of Jesus. Intercessory prayer reflects the love we see in God’s character, allowing us to think beyond ourselves and instead, to grow and develop in ourselves a compassion for our community.

Intercessory prayer starts with you! Be open to it. Be ready for it. Experience God’s power as Rev Dr Margaret Seaward ministers to us.

The Intercessory Prayer Seminar is a 2 day seminar and will conclude with a Combined Service on Sunday together with The People’s Church 8th Anniversary. Registrants are encouraged to come for all sessions. There will be lunch provided for the Saturday session.
