Coordinator of the program for the last six years, Jeannie shares about her passion for helping older citizens to feel relevant in such a fast-paced world.

“Over the past four decades, we have seen thousands of people over the age of 55 learn new skills and stay active through wide range of leisure, lifestyle and educational courses, such as computers, ballroom dancing, painting, creative writing and the list goes on.”

Keith's message: A natural witness

Rev Keith Garner shares about the disciple Andrew, who is thought to possibly be the first Christian evangelist. He explains how witnessing came naturally to Andrew and was someone who excelled at bringing people to Christ. Mr Garner encourages us be like Andrew and to be ready to share the gospel message at a moment's notice.
