WSCS in Telok Ayer CMC originated from the
Dorcas Society set up in 1933. It was officially formed in 1941. Today, the
WSCS monthly meetings are held on Saturdays (the Saturdays after first Sundays
of the months), 1.30 pm at Telok Ayer street or via zoom. The WSCS ministries
centre on four main pillars to help Methodist women find a place of belonging
where they can serve God, grow together as sisters in Christ and encourage each
other in their Christian walk. Programmes and activities are planned and
organised with the intent of these four areas of ministries; Discipleship &
Nurture, Missions, Outreach & Social Concerns and Witness & Evangelism.
They provide a platform for women to be equipped in the areas of leadership and
servanthood for the general ministry of the church. Areas of ministry such as
the prison ministry, care for the blind, the sick in hospital, the
educationally sub-normal girls and women in crisis were identified to create
opportunities for the WSCS women to serve God by serving the less fortunate. The
society's monthly programs include bible study, outing, health talk, gospel sharing, spiritual formation workshop, mission
trip, visits to old folks home/children homes etc .
To help women grow in the knowledge and
experience of God as revealed in Jesus Christ;
To challenge them to respond to God’s
To make Christ known throughout the world;
To develop a personal responsibility for
the whole task of the Church.
