Faith and Development

Covid-19 has caused major disruption to the world over the past couple of years. Organisations had to quickly rethink how they conducted their operations in order to comply with the latest Safe Management Measures, as well as how to stay relevant in the changing world. Likewise, the church has to evaluate how it can continue to participate in cross-cultural missions in light of Covid restrictions. When the opportunity to partner with World Vision in a Faith-in-Action Virtual trip to Cebu, Philippines arose, a team of 10 youths and young adults from Yio Chu Kang Chapel quickly jumped on board.

Many Christians practise a period of fasting during the season of Lent to prepare their hearts for Easter Sunday. To help church communities reflect on the relationship between the biblical practice of fasting and God’s admonition to pursue righteousness, help the weak, and care for the afflicted, World Vision Singapore developed The Fast I Choose, an interactive devotional resource for church ministry and discipleship groups.

As World Vision’s humanitarian responders ramp up our operations to support refugees fleeing the conflict in Ukraine, join us in praying for and with the children and families who have been caught up in this crisis and face an uncertain future.
