Family Day Out: Our Christian Heritage
Singapore is a young country - this August, we commemorate 56 years of independence.
But did you know that our Christian heritage is much longer and richer than that?
Join us for the first-ever TTB Family Day Out as we explore and discover our nation’s Christian roots, and the legacy of faith that began with the first missionaries to reach our shores. Hear amazing stories and testimonies about the first converts in Singapore, and how they passed down their faith from generation to generation, to finally intersect with where we are today.
Led by an experienced researcher and guide, this specially designed walking trail will take participants from Bugis to Mount Sophia, then to the heart of the civic district. Elvin and Esther from The Treasure Box Singapore will also be on hand to conduct fun games and facilitate important reflections about every family’s place in God’s unfolding story in this land we call home.
In order to maintain safe distancing and prevent intermingling, each registered participant will receive an audio pack and earphones that they will use to hear what the guide is sharing. This way, you won’t have to worry about missing any information too!
Your registration fee also entitles you to a limited edition TTB Family Activity tote bag (1 per family), which includes: - Audio Pack for each participant (to be returned at the end of the event) - Earphones for each participant - Activity Booklet - Interactive Map - Wrist band for each participant - Writing & Colouring Materials - Bottled water & snacks - Certificate of Participation
Due to COVID-19 limitations, as well as to ensure that the overall experience is maximised, we are limiting each 2.5 hour run to not more than 7-8 families (32 pax). Register fast to avoid disappointment!
IMPORTANT! As this programme is intended for families to not only learn more about Singapore’s Christian heritage, but also to bond and have a great time out together, please note that we will not accept registrations that are adults-only or children-only. At the minimum, participants should register as parent-child pairs, although we encourage you to sign up and attend as a family.
ATTIRE As the walking portion of the trail will take about 1.5 - 2 hours, do ensure that you are dressed appropriately (make sure you have comfortable walking shoes on!) You may also want to bring along an umbrella, in the event of rain (or very hot sun).
