Imagine an open-air café, with groups of youth huddled around tables, clutching their monopoly money and racking their brains to outwit their opponents.
This became reality on Saturday, 21 February, when 12 cell groups gathered at the rooftop and café of our Jurong West building to play innovative boardgames such as First Hand, Junglespeed and Hey, That’s My Fish!, amongst many others. The games were rented at an affordable rate from a game club in a local university.

Held for 2 hours after that afternoon’s service, the event was a light-hearted one, where members and friends had a chance to gather in a relaxed setting and engage one another through much entertainment.
Members took the effort to learn the various boardgames so that they could teach the rest how to play. The initiative they displayed is very encouraging, and we hope to see more of this among our youths in the church.
Friends and members who were at the outreach enjoyed themselves tremendously. Judging by the fun and laughter that afternoon, it certainly put to rest the notion that boardgames are boring.
