Welcome to the FREE COMMUNITY CHURCH website!

The FREE COMMUNITY CHURCH is a congregation of diverse individuals and families gathering to worship and grow as a Christian community. We desire to develop a vibrant heart relationship with God and a thinking-mind relationship with the Bible. We do not believe in easy answers to life’s challenging questions but in the wisdom of a great and loving God, who surpasses our human understanding. We aim to nurture Christ-centered communities so that members can develop a faith relevant to our times.

The FREE COMMUNITY CHURCH affirms that all individuals, including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons, are individuals of sacred worth created in God’s image. Our church affirms that same-sex and transgender relationships, when lived out in accord with the love commandments of Jesus, are consistent with Christian faith and teachings. Indeed, we find discrimination based on negative judgment of others, fear of difference, and homophobia inconsistent with Christian teachings.

Therefore, we welcome all people regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or economic status to our worship services and activities.

The kind of church that we believe the FREE COMMUNITY CHURCH and all churches are called to jouney to become is one that is FREE, INCLUSIVE, COMMUNITY, RELATIONAL, OPEN, ECUMENICAL, LIVING, RELEVANT and MISSIONAL. To find out more what this means, please click on "About Us".

If you have any questions about FREE COMMUNITY CHURCH, our ministries or our acitvities, please do not hesitate to drop us an email at info@freecomchurch.org.

/pastor's letter

FROM THE DESK OF REV. MIAK SIEW - 10 APRIL 2014::

Dear friends

I woke up 2 days ago, troubled. Someone asked me if I was leading another group to attend the Good Friday or Easter Vigil services at another church, and it wasn't part of what I had in mind. After all, I am already preparing for Maundy Thursday and Easter Sunday service.

I felt troubled, because while I have said quite often that we need to go through death before we get to resurrection, I have not given folks the opportunity to experience the Holy Triduum (Maundy Thursday - Good Friday - Holy Saturday - Easter Sunday). How can I say we move too quickly from Maundy Thursday to Easter Sunday, when I do not create that opportunity to experience the depths of grief and the power of Good Friday?

So we are going to have a Good Friday service on Friday morning. It would be a different kind of service from our usual, but we are always doing things differently at Free Community Church. I hope you can join me.

Abide in God's love, always,
miak


FOCUS ON "OUR" FAMILY :: The witness of the church is not about pounding the Gospel into other people but about transforming the quality and nature of relationships we have with one another in community. Learn about the kind of community we are called to become as Christians and overcome the barriers to becoming that community. Read the full transcript and other past sermons here.

HOW TO HAVE GOOD SEX - PRINCIPLES OF CHRISTIAN SEXUAL ETHICS :: As a gay Christian, with whom and when can I have sex? When is sex just and good and when is it not? What should I be considering when I want to be intimate with my partner? Is there a different standard for ethical sexual behaviour between a heterosexual and a homosexual couples?

At the Free Community Church, we believe that as part of living out our faith, there should be not be a disconnect between what we believe and how we live our lives as Christians - as followers of Christ. After years of reflection as a community, we have developed a framework for sexual ethics that contains a set of principles that we encourage everyone to apply to own their lives.

"STONEWALLED" MUSIC FOR HIV MEDICATION :: The inaugural album of Free Community Church is now available for sale on CD, Amazon.com and iTunes! "STONEWALLED" contains 12 original songs written, performed and produced by a group of volunteers who came to work on this project together.

We firstly want to help raise funds for people living with HIV. The CD is available at FCC at S$20 and ALL proceeds from the sale of "STONEWALLED" will go to those who can't get access to or can't afford the expensive HIV medication.

We also want to use music to share the truth of God's unconditional love for everyone. In a world where our differences are often used as the reason to reject and judge each other, we want you to know that you have been uniquely and lovingly created by a God who has a plan and purpose for each one of us. Whether you are straight, gay, bisexual, transgendered, poor or rich, black white or brown, HIV+ or negative.

To support this project and download the CD digitally on Amazon.com, please click here. All proceeds will go to our HIV medication fund.

Stay tuned to the latest updates on our music by joining our facebook page here.

Prayer Requests

PRAYER REQUESTS :: Is there something troubling you? Is there too much to bear? At some point in our spiritual journeys, we all realize that our own strength is not enough. And fortunately, we are not alone. So whether or not you are a member of this church, we would earnestly like to pray for you, and commit your needs to God. We will be doing so as a church community at our monthly prayer meetings, conducted on the last Wednesday of each month.

Click here to download the form you can drop into our prayer box at the entrance or let us know a bit about your situation and how best we could pray for you by sending us an email at info@freecomchurch.org. Do also indicate if you are comfortable with your name or the names of your loved ones mentioned. Please be assured that we fully respect your need for confidentiality.

 

GIVING :: The effectiveness of any Church is limited by the generosity of its members. As we are looking to be able to reach out more effectively through our community action projects, relocate to a place where we can call our Home and manage the day-to-day running of the Church, we hope that you will be able to join us in committing a set amount of your finances to the work of FREE COMMUNITY CHURCH.

Tithing and pledging are important spiritual disciplines as it helps us be grateful stewards over the money that God has blessed us with. Click here to download a copy of the Financial Pledge Form and mail it back to us or drop it into the offering bag during service.

Please note that although FREE COMMUNITY CHURCH is a registered charity in Singapore, donations are not tax deductible.
