What’s It Like

This is my first time attending the Aldersgate event and I found the session very meaningful and relevant to me. I gained a new perspective of work, especially on the motivation behind delivering high-quality work, and started to reflect on the role of religion in the marketplace. I enjoyed the 2-day convention and hope to explore more of similar events in the future.

The Aldersgate Conference is a special occasion where Methodists from the three Annual Conferences come together to worship God and remember His work through the Methodist movement. As we sang our hearts out to God and prayed in unison, such unity left a deep impression in me. Bishop’s sermon was a timely reminder for us as a people called Methodists not to dwell just on past spiritual experience. As emphasised by John Wesley, we need to grow in holiness through doing good at home, community and marketplace – impacting lives as they too experience God's grace.

“As a first-time attendee, I praise God for the fact that despite coming from different churches, we are able to gather this evening to pray and worship in unity. It is indeed a blessing to see members of all three Annual Conferences in the same hall, singing the same songs of worship, and showing the true meaning of being in the Body of Christ. The entire service left me feeling blessed and on fire at the same time – it was an experience that will not be easily forgotten.”
