One year on, together with Singapore, we honour the memory of our founding prime minister, Mr Lee Kuan Yew.
23 March 2015
As a church, we mourn the loss of Mr Lee Kuan Yew, one of Singapore’s founding fathers who made a tremendous difference to the success and prosperity of the country and its citizens. We pray for the Lord’s comfort and strength on Mr Lee’s loved ones during this difficult time, and for His abundant blessings and favour to continue to be on them and our nation.
Together with his pioneering team of leaders, Mr Lee laid the foundation stones of modern-day Singapore and devoted most of his life to serving the people of this nation. His wisdom and dedication resulted in the incredible growth of a small nation. He was truly a great blessing to this country.
Our Senior Pastor Joseph Prince, who has always taught us to have a culture of honour and to show respect and appreciation where it is due, commissioned the youth to honour Mr Lee in a public way. This inspired our youth Dominic Chin to appreciate and honour Mr Lee with a song he wrote and recorded in 2014.
This song was performed as a tribute to Mr Lee at our English services on 29 March 2015, the day of the State Funeral.

On 22 May 2015, we presented a digital painting of Mr Lee to his son, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, to express our love and appreciation for Mr Lee, and our continued prayers for the family and Singapore.
Our artist Patrick Lee completed the painting in nine hours after he learnt of the demise of Mr Lee.
