On 18 April 2009 at 3pm, City Harvest Church’s premises at SIngapore Expo, Hall 8 Conference Room 3 was bustling with activities and excitement as members from Chan Yah Lan’s zone and their new friends gathered for The Great Reveal.
The Great Reveal was a makeover competition where members had to create a brand new and improved image for their new friends. Members had to work within a budget of S$50 for each person.
Another event highlight was a live demonstration on basic make-up skills for the girls and hair styling for the guys. Makeup artists from the zone were called in to showcase their skills. At the end of the event, each friend got to take home a generous goody bag containing L’Oreal products.
Zone Supervisor, Chan Yah Lan, spoke on her growing years at City Harvest Church and will share on how she and her husband met at the following week’s event. That certainly caught the attention of Florence Grundywarr, 19 who said she wanted to come back and listen to Chan’s romantic story.

The event saw the involvement of 10 cell groups and a total of 150 attendees. The new friends certainly enjoyed the fellowship and at the same time had a great makeover done.
Ong Shu Qing, 15, said “I enjoy being with the people in the cell group and I feel happy when I come for church service and cell group meetings.’’
Everyone were treated to sumptuous refreshments after the event wrapped up. The new friends also left with a brand new image and a desire to be involved in future church activities.
