To all Baptised and Transferred-in Members
BFEC 47th Annual General Meeting on Sunday 23 May 2021
- 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.
- Notice is hereby given that BFEC’s 47th AGM service will be held on Sunday 23 May 2021. As the authorities have capped AGMs to a limit of 50 pax (unlike the quota for church service), this year’s AGM service will again be conducted virtually, as follows:-.
Date: Sunday 23 May 2021
Part 1: 9.00 am – AGM Worship Service (Worship, Message, Lord’s Supper) via usual ONLINE platforms (https://bfec.sg/youtube or https://bfec.sg/sermons)
(As explained, do note that there WILL NOT BE any onsite/physical service.)
Part 2: 10.00am – AGM continues ONLINE 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 explanation has been given.” So 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:
Election of New Deacon: Lee Yen Ter

- 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 15 May 2021. During the AGM, priority will be given to answering these written questions and thereafter, to clarifications arising out of the presentations given.
- I am confident the Lord will be pleased and all of us mutually blessed.
Elder Alex Lo, Chairman, BFEC
