In Christian theology, “Eschatology,” is the study of what Scripture teaches about the final events of history or what we usually call, ‘End Times.’ In the history of the Church, the study of end times usually involves four last things namely, Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell. These are the four last stages of the soul in life and the afterlife. The Church needs the teaching of eschatology to remind us as Christians that this world is not our home but that we are to look beyond this life. More importantly the study of the last things will prayerfully spur every Christian to take their discipleship in Christ seriously. As Thomas a Kempis once wrote, “How happy and prudent is he who tries now in life to be what he wants to be found in death. Perfect contempt of the world, a lively desire to advance in virtue, a love for discipline, the works of penance, readiness to obey, self-denial, and the endurance of every hardship for the love of Christ, these will give a man great expectations of a happy death.”
In this teaching series by Rev Stanley Chua, he will be exploring three subjects out of the four namely, Judgment, Hell and Heaven. The subject on ‘Death,’ has already been covered in his previous teachings. For those who have missed the two-part sermon series on Life and Death, you can still access our Church’s website to listen to it.

Youth Ministry (YM) will be holding its annual year-end camp again on 17 - 19 December 2020!
This year's camp theme is "STEADFAST" and it is based our camp theme verse Hebrews 6:17-20. In line with Wesley Methodist Church's theme of "Sabbath" in 2021, we hope that this year's camp will be a time for our youths to reflect on the year that is passing and to look forward to the year ahead, seeing God's plan and providence guiding us onwards.
This year in view of COVID-19, CAMP STEADFAST will not be an overnight camp but a day camp. The camp will also be decentralized in different homes to facilitate meeting and interaction in small groups.
