Centenary Newsletter Vol 1 April 2022

A hundred years ago a new community was born with a mission, and a new church was built and dedicated.

Now, it is our duty and our joy to reminisce the deeds of our bygone members and continue to tell God’s wonders to the future generations.

The celebrations will last a whole year and we shall keep you informed through our website and the Centenary Newsletter. To download a copy click on the image (right).

For the past 100 years, the Church of the Good Shepherd has 
been a beacon of light to all around. It was the labour of love and sacrifice of many. 

As we celebrate this centenary, we hope and pray this church will continue to shepherd and guard its flock for many years to come.
