A Short History 

The history of Aldersgate Methodist Church began in September 1977, when the Clementi New Town Pioneer Work was initiated under the charge of the Rev William Denver Stone, to build a Methodist church in the Clementi area. Through the work of the Rev Denver Stone and a nucleus of seven committed Christians, our inaugural service was held on January 8, 1978 at the Singapore American School, in Ulu Pandan, with an attendance of 70 adults and children.

On May 7, 1978 our Pioneer congregation moved to a new place of worship at Theatre III of the Anglo-Chinese Junior College. We stayed there until December, when through the effort of the Rev T C Nga, a former British Army church at Portsdown Road became available for rent. Our first service at the Portsdown Road church was held on Christmas Day 1978.

In the following year, on May 6, 1979, Clementi Methodist Church was constituted as the thirteenth local conference of the Trinity Annual Conference in Singapore.

We worshipped at Portsdown Road for six years and during that period, made three unsuccessful tenders for parcels of land to build our church. In 1984, we were served a Quit Notice because of development work by the Government. Following this “eviction” we moved to Fairfield Methodist Primary School, where we worshipped for 10 years.

But God was faithful. A series of what can only be described as nothing less than miracles, led to the completion of the Aldersgate Chapel in December 1994, where we worship today.

In 1997, our church was re-named Aldersgate Methodist Church.

How and why did God put us where we are today at Dover Road? To find out, click this link: The Aldersgate Experience
