What makes you guys tick?
Come find out! We would love to have you join our informal gathering every Sunday afternoon at 4 PM where we discuss relevant life issues based on a single section of the Bible (not too complicated, churchy or technical). We are not-too-big, not-too-small. Since our 50 people come from 13 countries, you will feel about as out of place as the rest of us!
What about the kids?
About 30 minutes into the service (at about 4:30) the kids can leave the service for their own special programs. This includes a nursery for the little ones.
When do you meet?
We have a Sunday afternoon service from 4:00-5:30 PM. This enables people in fast-paced Singapore to have at least one morning a week they can sleep in but still make it to church on time. About 10 of us go our to dinner at a nearby restaurant afterwards, so please join us.
What other events do you guys have?
There's a weekly ladies Precept Bible Study (Thursdays 10 AM - noon), Man2Man gathering every other Wednesday night, youth and young adult group on Saturdays, etc. Periodically we have dinners or BBQs for the whole church. The annual church retreat in Malaysia occurs each October with about 40 attending.
Where do you meet?
CIC worships at the Metropolitan YMCA in the heart of Singapore near where many internationals live. Our location is only 15 minutes drive from Woodlands, down the street from the Stevens MRT on the Downtown (Blue) Line, or only three bus stops north of the Orchard Road MRT station. Buses 105, 132, and 190 stop right in front of the Metropolitan YMCA—a popular location in Singapore known for its great location, efficient service, excellent guest rooms, conference facilities, and Christian atmosphere. Once you get to the YMCA, walk to the far entrance and take the lift up to the Upper Room on the 5th floor.
How do I drive to Crossroads?
Get off the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) only three exits east of the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) at the Whitley/Stevens Road exit. Drive south past the Bukit Timah Road overpass and you will find the YMCA on the left side just after the pedestrian bridge at the corner of Stevens Road and, yes, Stevens Road :-). Enter the building at the aqua awning near the end of the parking lot and take the lift up to the 5th floor Upper Room. We have 50 free parking spaces available.
How do I come by MRT?
The YMCA has a great location only three bus stops from Orchard Road and Scotts Road -- the most popular intersection in Singapore in the heart of the shopping district. We are just south of the Stevens MRT station on the Downtown (Blue) Line. If the North-South Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) line is close to you, just take it to the Orchard Road Station (NS22). You will get off the MRT at the SE corner of this intersection. Walk through the underground tunnel NW to the opposite corner and take the escalator up to the Lido 8 Cineplex at street level. Walk north past the first bus stop at Scotts Walk. Walk a few meters farther to the bus stop in front of the Thong Teck Building. Take any of these three buses -- 105, 132, or 190. All three will head north, merging left onto Stevens Road. Get off at the third stop, which is across the street from the Metropolitan YMCA. Walk over the pedestrian bridge to the east side and turn right. Enter the building at the aqua awning near the end of the parking lot and take the lift up to the 5th floor Upper Room. Welcome to your new church home!
How do I come by bus?
Three buses from various parts of the island will bring you right in front of the YMCA:
Bus 105 comes from the west coast area. It passes by Clementi MRT Station (EW23) near International Community School and proceeds under the MRT overhead tracks for two stations until coming to Commonwealth, where it cuts across the downtown area onto Holland Road and Orchard Road. Then it turns left at Scotts Road and gets you to church at the fourth stop. Cross the street and turn right to get to your new church home. Enter the building at the aqua awning near the end of the parking lot.
Bus 132 originates in the north in Ang Mo Kio. It proceeds from Upper Thomson Road to Thomson Road and has a short PIE stint, exiting at Whitley/Stevens Road. Get off at the fourth exit and you are right in front of the YMCA. Walk to the right up to the corner, turn left, and enter the building at the aqua awning near the end of the parking lot.
Bus 190 travels from Choa Chu Kang in the island's northwest. It takes the BKE and PIE, exiting at the Whitley/Stevens Road. When it proceeds south, get off at the fourth bus stop and you are right in front of the YMCA. Walk to the right up to the corner, turn left, and enter the building at the aqua awning near the end of the parking lot.
