GCF Fellowship Meeting

Date: Tuesday, 22 January, 2013
Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Venue: Singapore Bible College, 9-15 Adam Road, Singapore
Theme: Love the sojourner: A Christian dialogue on migrant workers in Singapore
Speakers: Rev Dr Daniel Koh

Synopsis of dialogue

 The issue of migrant workers is controversial and one of the hot topics on the agenda of our National Conversation. Migrant workers presently comprise about 25% of our population and have, over the years, formed the building block of our nation in many sectors. However, Singaporeans seem to carry mixed sentiments towards them. On one hand their contributions are welcomed, but on the other hand many Singaporeans are discomforted by the social implications of having too many migrant workers. The recent incident between some Chinese nationals and SMRT leading to a strike and the subsequent expulsion of some workers has also thrown this issue into the national spotlight.
How should we Christians respond to this issue? Join in the discussion with Dr. Daniel Koh Kah Soon who will lead us in our time of dialogue.
