Sermon Series 2023: Acts of the Holy Spirit


We will be starting 2023 with a new sermon series on Acts of the Holy Spirit.

Someone once asked: “If the Holy Spirit left our church today, would anything change? Or would we go on with business as usual?” This is a sombre reminder that it is possible for churches and churchgoers to have “an outward form of religion but denying God’s power” (2 Tim. 3:5).

Over eight weeks from 1 January to 19 February, we will learn to recognise the presence and work of the Holy Spirit in BRMC.

More importantly, we pray that God—Father, Son, and Spirit—will transform us for the sake of the world He loves so much.

BRMC’s response to the repeal of Section 377A


The Government has announced that it will repeal Section 377A of the Penal Code, which criminalises sex between men. At the same time, it has promised to protect the definition of marriage from being challenged constitutionally in the courts (1).

In response, the pastoral leadership of Barker Road Methodist Church stands in alignment with the National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS) and the Methodist Church in Singapore (MCS). We understand “same-sex sexual acts as contrary to God’s order” and affirm “the position of one man and one woman in a monogamous marriage relationship”(2).

We note the rationale and reasoning behind the repeal, and “trust that this decision was not taken lightly” (3). Members and visitors are encouraged to refer to the detailed statements put out by NCCS and MCS to better understand our position in light of more debates to come, within and without the church.

The decision to repeal s377A is contentious and potentially divisive. The pastors would like to encourage our congregational family at BRMC to recognise God’s sovereignty, and to uphold one another in love and compassion whilst we seek to live out God’s standards of holiness.

As we continue to promote our understanding of family, please pray for divine wisdom for the leaders of our country, community and homes.

“Though we walk a long and broken road
We are here to bear each other’s load
And forgive as You’ve forgiven us
Let us walk in love for we are one”

(Excerpt from “We Are One (In the Father’s Love)” by Emu Music;
Theme song of BRMC Sermon Series 2022: We Are Family)(4)
