Church Camp 2017 - Abound

7 - 10 June 2017

On June 7th, Cairnhill moved from a season of abiding in Christ into the season of abounding in L.I.F.E..

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.
— 2 Corinthians 9:8

As children of the Living God, we have all been richly blessed – for Christ has come that we may all “have life, and have it more abundantly” (John 10: 10b, KJV).  This is God’s plan for ALL of us, without exception – all have the legacy of abundant life, so that we can ALL in turn be ministers to bless all those around us in Christ’s name.

Our campers have several testimonies to share:

The entire church camp experience exceeded my expectations in so many ways. I was blessed by the messages of Pastor Marios Ellinas, who spoke with a lot of revelation. I am also grateful that I managed to spend some personal time with him.  Chantelle and Elliot had so much fun participating in the activities which were so thoughtfully planned out by Amy and her family. I was heartened to see the many pictures of the kids playing and kneeling to pray to the Lord.
I’m definitely coming for the next camp! Thank you for making it happen Pastor! We were mightily blessed!
— Mario Singh
This year’s church camp was an absolute blast! i was extremely blessed to have been there, and to meet new people as well as grow spiritually. this year’s camp was not only a welcome pause on the rat race but it also allowed me to truly let go of my burdens and be reminded to let god take control. thank you camp comm!

We signed up for church camp looking forward to “come away by ourselves, with our Lord, to a quiet place and get some rest”.  We were expectant to encounter our Lord.  And we certainly did!  In a quiet but powerful and deep way! Over the few days in Melaka, the Lord nourished us, lifted our spirits, opened our hearts, renewed our thinking and reaffirmed our identity and His Promises to us. Praise Him for His gift and His patience and faithfulness... Now having received this Treasure, I resolve to be a faithful “jar of clay” to bring the same to others in what I do and say.

We had the privilege of having Pastor Marios as our camp speaker and also Amy Tan and family from One Kids Ministry and Aunty Nancy to minister to our children. Pastor Marios brought us through lessons about honour and hiddenness, citing several funny stories about his life along the way. Each of us were warmed up to receive the powerful revelation he had to give us from the Word.

At the end of the camp, we joined together as a family to partake in the Holy Communion, remembering that we are one in the body of Christ. This privilege to belong in God’s family is because He has shed His blood for us. His body was pierced and broken for our iniquities and our healing. Maintaining this spirit of unity, Cairnhill will definitely abound much for His kingdom.

We serve an unlimited God who is looking for people to transform the world. He is looking for those who will say yes to Him to co-labour with heaven, so that heaven will be brought down to earth so that Jesus can reign forever. May we all, as a church, become powerful and effective witnesses for our Lord Jesus Christ, more and more each day.

Baptism I 2017

30 April 2017

17 candidates were water baptized. Praise the Lord for their public declaration to follow Jesus!

Have you ever wondered about the significance of baptism? Putting it simply, it speaks of what Christ's finished work on the cross, and it signifies a new life in Christ through forgiveness, cleansing and acceptance into the family of Christ.

Holy Spirit Weekend Retreat

7 - 8 March 2017

We rejoice with the current batch of Alpha/BMC graduates as they continue their spiritual journey together in a new LIFE group. Having gone through 12 sessions and sharing about life with each other, they have grown closer to each other as brothers and sisters in Christ.

Below are the testimonies of these transformed lives!

"Alpha Course is definitely a MUST go course for new believers who do not know much about God. After 12 weeks of lessons, my faith increased tremendously. I started going to Alpha with the mindset of "Does God really exist?" It ended with the Holy Spirit within me and an amazing relationship with God." -Sheryl Li

"My encounter with the Holy Spirit was subtle - it happened during Alpha Weekend when Pastor was praying for me. I experience an overwhelming peace within me that resonated through my body. I sense an urge to do something good, help someone in need and get rid of something bad. I know this is the Holy Spirit's inspiration. I couldn't stop smiling because I couldn't contain the joy inside me." - Dr Lim Chin Hong

"Alpha has helped in my journey and relationship with our Lord, in so many ways. Especially Session 7 - How does God guide us?, session 9 - Does God heal today? and Holy Spirit weekend. Looking back and reflecting, HE has always been there for me, looking out and sprinkling little miracles along the way which I did not realize then... ( at that time , I was busy chasing a career / travels / friends and family ) one of many examples; I always had friends / getting in touch with me just at the right time and at the right places when I needed it. Things that didn't work out, was actually for the better ... looking at it now. It is ALL HIS work and HIS unconditional love. Alpha had helped me to opened up emotionally and more importantly a relationship with GOD that I have always wanted but didn't know how to. Everything just fell into place. I feel a sense of belonging and wanting to know and serve our good LORD more. One of the most significant encounter with the LORD was during Holy Spirit Alpha weekend. When I was prayed for, there was an amazing feeling - a really warm fuzzy kind of love and feeling that I encountered. It felt like a BiG Hug from God and I knew that everything will be just fine. What came to me (my mind) immediately after was this neon sign that says :
Trust in the Lord. Proverbs 3:5 ' Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean not on your own understanding'." - Dulcie Ng


Our Cairnhill discipleship journey

It is designed in a way whereby at the end of the course, participants would have an understanding of what being a disciple of Jesus means. 

The Alpha course is open to anyone who wants to find out more about Christianity and God, or those who seek to strengthen their foundation. It also acts as a training ground for those who have reached a certain maturity to polish their ability in handling the Word.

There are two sessions in BMC (Baptism & Membership Class) that is combined with the last two sessions of Alpha during the Holy Spirit Retreat. Participants come together to be set free from the strongholds and bondages in their lives. There, they can experience the infilling of the Holy Spirit and the healing that God offers.
