We are preparing to host the annual gathering of pastors and laity of the 21 English-speaking Methodist churches in Singapore in November.
The 47th Session of the Trinity Annual Conference (TRAC), to be held 21-24 November 2022, will mark almost a year of Rebuilding Koinonia as BRMC congregations return to pre-pandemic service timings and activities this year.
BRMC members can look forward to celebrating the ordination of Pastor Gilbert Lok to the Office of the Deacon at TRAC. After the event, he will wear the clerical collar and may then be addressed as Reverend Gilbert Lok.
The last time BRMC hosted TRAC was almost 20 years ago, in 2003.
As many as 300 delegates are expected over the four days.
Watch this space
Join us in demonstrating the hospitality of Jesus to our brothers- and sisters-in-Christ from the Methodist church family, and celebrating community through service – as ushers, musicians, prayer partners and other roles.
So, save the dates and watch this space for volunteer calls in the coming months.
What is TRAC?
TRAC is an annual meeting where delegates reflect on past programmes, and to discuss God’s direction for us as a family of Methodist churches. Election of certain office holders may also be held in some years at TRAC.
The conference is scheduled to be held on site, subject to last minute changes that may arise due to the ongoing pandemic. It was held online last year.
Key sessions will still be livestreamed, for e.g. the Ordination and Closing Service of TRAC 47th Session.
The Trinity Annual Conference (TRAC) is also the organisation that trains and manages our pastors. Under the Methodist system, pastors are not tied to a specific church, and are often reassigned after several years.
