Notice of 46th Annual General Meeting (AGM)
To all Baptised and Transferred-in Members
It is the privilege of members to participate in this AGM service not as a formal duty but as a time for celebration and mutual accountability. Our Lord is present even on AGM Sunday. In view of the COVID-19 situation, this AGM will be convened online:
Date: Sunday 16 August 2020
Part 1: 9.00 am – AGM Worship Service via usual platforms (Worship, Message, Lord’s Supper)
Part 2: 10.00am – AGM continues on Live Zoom session (e.g. Reports, Accounts etc)
To participate in the AGM is to affirm your membership to the BFEC family, for no church can function healthily without members affirming their regular participation in their local church.
As such, Article 5 of our Articles of Association states: “All members of the church shall at such intervals and in such manner as may be required by the Church Council, affirm their membership failing which such members shall be transferred from the Register of members to a subsidiary register upon which their membership shall ipso facto be suspended, provided that the Church Council shall have the discretion to restore a person where a reasonable ex-planation has been given.”
Let us make it our goal to affirm our membership once again at this AGM service.
This year, the Elders are pleased to inform members of the following:
- Appointment of Advisory Elder: Roland Tan
- Appointment of new co-opted Elder: Derek Pang
- Election of New Deacons: Kelvin Ng and Joseph Oh

Questions & Answers: With the time constraints of an online AGM and in the interest of giving opportunities for prayerfully-considered questions and answers, the Council invites members who have questions to submit them in writing to the Church Secretary. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 8 Aug 2020. During the AGM, priority will be given to clarifications arising out of answers to these pre-submitted questions.
I am confident the Lord will be pleased and all of us mutually blessed.
