"To know Christ and to make Him known"
Wesley Floral Fellowship (WFF)
A sub-ministry of the Worship & Music Ministry, the Wesley Floral Fellowship (WFF) was originally founded by Mrs Gnana Thevathasan in 1945. Today, the WFF has grown to a team of 11 leaders and 42 members who come from all ages and all walks of life, faithfully serving in this ministry every weekend.
The members gather in church once or twice a month, to put together floral arrangements for church services on Saturday and Sunday. Occasionally, the WFF dedicate additional hours of their time during the week to create special floral arrangements for significant occasions like baptisms, church weddings, Easter or Christmas.
WFF Fun Facts
- Consists of 53 members
- Currently only has four male members
- Members range in age from their 30s to their 80s
- The practice of making floral arrangements at Wesley was initially started in 1945, after the Japanese Occupation, with Mrs Gnana Thevathasan arranging flowers in a bottle every week
Started in 2017 by a group of passionate gardeners, the Gardening Ministry meets three days a week to tend to plants. The greenery the Gardening Ministry contributes helps to beautify our church, enhancing the overall look and feel of Wesley’s surroundings.
Apart from serving as an opportunity for you to do God’s work, gardening is also an enjoyable form of exercise, as it increases levels of physical activity, aiding in enhanced mobility and flexibility. Gardening can also prove therapeutic for the soul as it reduces stress levels and promotes relaxation. To find out more and/or to serve in this area, please contact us here.
Ukulele & Harmonica
The Seniors’ Harmonica Ensemble and Ukulele Group
Ministering to the congregation through their cheerful tunes, the Wesley GYM Harmonica Ensemble and Ukulele Group also participate in outreach programmes with the residents of St Luke’s Hospital and St Luke’s Elder Care. They also perform at Wheels D’ Way outings.
Apart from uplifting the spirit with music, learning a musical instrument can help the elderly to keep their memories sharp. If you are interested in picking up a new musical skill or finding like-minded musical enthusiasts, you are welcome to join the group at their meetings every Wednesday.

Every Friday at 9.45am, come rain or shine, you’ll be sure to find members of the Collating Ministry seated at the Level 2 Hall, diligently collating each page of the Wesley Weekly. In a process that spans more than one and a half hours, volunteers work hard at placing every page of every booklet in order. Together, the team collates an average of 1,000 copies of the Wesley Weekly each week.
Established in the 1980s, Wesley relied on a printing machine, a paper guillotine and a folding machine, to complete all the printing, folding and collating, which was done in-house by members of the church on Saturday mornings. Today, the ministry comprises about 15 members, ranging from their 50s to their 80s. Many of them have been serving for more than 20 years, blessing the congregation with the fruits of their labour every church service.
If you would like to get involved in this simple, yet dedicated task of collating the Wesley Weekly each week, please contact us here.
