The Mandarin Congregation in Bethesda Pasir Ris Mission church started from a small bible study fellowship in 1979. Initiated by a few members from the English Congregation, the Mandarin fellowship was formed with the aim to bring the gospel to their Chinese educated parents and family members. The first worship service began on 28 February 1988, led by Pastor Chan Kum Wah and his co-workers. Today, the congregation has a regular attendance of about 150 people, including youth and children.
The Sunday worship service is held in Hall 3 from 9.00 am to 10.30am. After a short tea break at the Fellowship hall, members attend the Adult Sunday School from 11.00am to 12.15pm. A variety of classes are available to cater to the different needs of our members. In addition to the Sunday service, we have a weekly Prayer Meeting on Wednesdays from 8.00pm to 9.30pm.
To better tend to the needs of our members, we have organized our members by age into three fellowship groups – the Senior Citizen Fellowship, Adult Fellowship, and Youth Fellowship. Every member of the congregation is also assigned into a Care group to provide better support and a praying network for each member.

We pray that brothers and sisters will encourage their Mandarin speaking family members or friends to attend our Mandarin Service. You may also send your children to our Mandarin Sunday School so that they can have more opportunity to listen to Chinese through songs and bible stories.
