DIOCESE OF SINGAPORE: DAILY MORNING OFFICE VIA ZOOM/YOUTUBE FOR JUNE 2021

For the month of June, given the return to Phase 2 and the curtailing of our parish activities, the Diocese and the Cathedral would like to host a daily morning office via Zoom or YouTube.
It will be held every morning starting on 1 June 21 from Monday to Friday, from 7.30am to 7.50am.

The daily office is our ancient Anglican heritage which allows the Psalms, Prayers and the Word to shape, edify and cleanse us. It creates a daily pattern and rhythm of life.

We will be using a simplified version in the lectionary portion of the Cathedral App (Android | Apple).
We encourage members from our parishes to gather for this daily office and grow in their spiritual formation with either the Zoom link or YouTube to attend/view the Morning Office online.
Link will go live at 7:25am.

COA CHURCH REVIEW

As we approach COA's 70th Anniversary, the Lord has led us into a season of reflection and renewal. We have engaged Rev’d Dr Philip Huan from ChurchLife Resources to facilitate our reflection.
ChurchLife Resources has ministered to more than 50 churches including other Anglican churches, and we are thankful that Rev’d Philip is available to minister to our need in this season.
We are in the initial phase of the church review. Rev’d Philip is in the process of facilitating the reflection among pastoral staff, PCC, and ministry leaders, to help us rediscover and refocus on COA's calling, the relationships within our church, and the necessary steps to move COA ahead in the direction that our Lord desires.
In a few months' time, we will be able to consolidate the discussions and arrange for a town hall meeting to provide a comprehensive update to the congregation.
Meanwhile, if you have any queries, please feel free to reach out to our Wardens or email PCC at pcc_secretary@ascension.org.sg.
Let us continue to pray for COA, and fix our eyes on our Lord Jesus as we go through this church review in preparation for COA's 70th Anniversary.
