Bishop Rennis Ponniah
Chairman, Celebration of Hope
Bishop, Anglican Church of Singapore
CELEBRATION OF HOPE is about Christians in Singapore rallying together and reaching out to share Jesus Christ with friends and relatives. The message we are proclaiming is that Jesus Christ is the one name in which everyone can have solid hope. The vision is of personal evangelism on a mass scale, culminating in Gospel rallies at the 50,000 capacity National Stadium over three days, 17-19 May 2019.
The vision for COH was birthed in the hands of several pastors of the city in 2017, with National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS) and Evangelical Fellowship of Singapore (EFOS) taking the lead organisationally and receiving immediate support from the LoveSingapore network of churches.
CELEBRATION OF HOPE is a city-wide endeavour calling on all churches to unite for prayer and the proclamation of the life-transforming name of Jesus. Only God can open people’s hearts to hear and believe the message.
Hence, Prayer is fundamental to COH and we have set apart 2018 as the Year of Prayer. And COH goes beyond the Year of Proclamation in 2019, to make 2020 the Year of Personal Discipleship.
CELEBRATION OF HOPE is about believing God for a mighty harvest of souls who will go on to bless our nation and the world by their new hope-filled lives. Much more than a one-off event, by the grace and power of God, it will be a vital step of revival. Come, jump on board!
