About This Book

The beginnings of the Brethren movement in Singapore can be traced back to the arrival of an English businessman, Mr Philip Robinson. In 1857, he set foot in Singapore and a year later, founded Robinson & Company, which still exists today. By the early 1860s, the Robinson home was open to believers for Bible study and fellowship. The desire for a public Christian witness grew among these saints, and so on 3 July 1864, the Missions Room was opened at 108 Bencoolen Street, followed on 30 September 1866 by Bethesda Chapel at 77 Bras Basah Road. This book chronicles the growth of the Brethren churches over the past 150 years and help Singapore Brethren discover and appreciate their rich legacy and shared beliefs. Besides the historical accounts, the book also includes contributions from Brethren members reflecting on missions and outreach, and contemporary issues and perspectives.
