Who We Are

We are an interdenominational Christian organisation serving among tertiary-level students and graduates in Singapore.

 

Formed in 1959, the pioneering emphasis of FES was to develop a strong evangelical witness in every institution of higher learning in Singapore. FES also coordinates the work of the Christian Fellowships (CFs) on various campuses, facilitates interaction between student leaders from the various groups and enables them to exchange ideas and encourage one another effectively.

 

The long-term vision was, and still is, “to encourage and promote the development of indigenous leadership and responsibility…. to make (a vital contribution) to the Church…. to see forthcoming able Bible scholars and teachers, Christian writers, preachers, missionaries and other Christian workers” (from the first FES Annual Report. 1960).

 

Encapsulating the ethos that has guided FES since its formation, our vision is:

 

To see a community of Christlike leaders who are salt and light on campus, in the church, and in society for the glory of God.

  • 2020年对学生自主的校园基督徒学生福音团契肯定不是容易的一年。但,若是不以成效或人数来估量,这刚过去的一年对这批学生来说却是一个超然的经历。 曾经一度,校园团契的干事无法踏进校园见到学生,虽说是可以在zoom聚会,但真正在疫情中站稳,坚韧不摇动的是这群大专学生! 线上空间的同行 在疫情里没有线上的空间是不可能的。在大家疫情当中疫起同行的当儿不单是技术上的考量,而是团契生活的深化。以往大家能够面对面团契,却在诸般限制的时候谈团契肯定不是空中楼阁。而是把基督耶稣的话活在当下的处境;面对还未信主的朋友,已经被zoom疲劳轰炸,累得半死的,我们陪着他们多走一公里!在主内的肢体,我们更以线上灵修和祷告会彼此扶持,反而不觉疲累! 这些实际的线上聚会在整整的一年使到大家的谨慎与战兢中稳步向前,也使校园团契生活在主爱中,不是在数据中,担心聚会的人数,归属感或参与感。因为爱的创意已经超越了这一切。2020年初联合理工校园的联谊营筹委还在寻找营会地点,最终转去线上虽有失望,但下一刻大家见证的是创意爆发,整个虚拟(virtual)营会一点都不虚,盛载着满满的爱(见图),继续到10月的联合理工研经营. 心灵空间的同行 只是把实体聚会虚拟化满足不了弟兄姐妹的心灵,在聚会中参入团契的真义,圣经的真理把大家的心灵交织在一起。原以为是在校园相遇,却是预备一群同奔天路的客旅。联合理工研经营的时候,这张图片表达学生愿意在不舒适的环境中领受神的话,学习体验神的话语给我们今天的应用。可能《活灵活现》正好用来形容这些莘莘学子的心态。 其实来到10月底的华文组50周年大家庭聚会,最大的失落就是整个大家庭居然要上线!这样的事放在2019年构思时来说,简直可以说是:匪夷所思!但大家庭聚会却明明在这种光景中聚会了3个小时。大家庭的程度居然横跨了整个地球;来自各角落的华文组校友都一起在线上了!我们一起见证了大家庭聚会在天父上帝长阔高深的爱中居然可以如此之大!这次的大家庭聚会主题为:傳,以这样的方式,启示我们FES华文组大家庭,这一傳何止千里,可达万里…   天上空间的同行 既然我们都是同奔天路的客旅,我们就应当超越疫情给予我们的局限,甚至超越科技给予我们的局限,因为主爱的疆界没有局限。在面对疫情的当下,当政的吁请各界人士在停滞之间接受培训,在时机配合时,派上用场。笔者愿共邀诸位天路客旅,不是思念地上的疫情,更不管是否停滞;而是带着顺服的心领受天上的呼召,接受从天上而来的异象。 曾经在约半个世纪前,有一群莘莘学子早上在校园,下午却跑上智慧山上领受永恒的智慧。他们今天在各个领域顺服,无论是顺服受苦,抑或顺服受教,却是一群继续在天路上奔跑的客旅,继续回应呼召他们的天父。时至今日,我们都知道末日已至,我们更应该受装备去收庄稼。与其每天无日无夜地zoom,我们实在可以在极度忙碌中,领受永恒的智慧,无需去到智慧山,因为现在科技允许我们以虚拟的方式在线上教学与受教。我想重点只是一颗愿意的心,来成就天父在我们身上的美意。 后记:在写这篇稿件时,迫在眉睫的是华文组的柴米油盐酱醋茶,同工的薪水应该就要靠主任说什么话了…秉着回顾与前瞻的精神,不敢消灭圣灵的感动。也劝请读到这里的校友与学生,我们都不要消灭圣灵的感动。   赖斯强主任...
