Church members express their heartfelt messages to friends and loved ones through written notes on a “friendship wall.”

This February, amidst the bustle of Chinese New Year, City Harvest Church does its part for love.
To encourage people to show their gratitude and appreciation, a Friendship Expression Wall has been set up at both church locations at Singapore Expo Hall 1 and Jurong West Street 91. For the whole month of February, the wall is available to anyone who wants to leave a message for friends or family in the form of paper notes. Though most people connect these days through online networking sites, the “lost” art of using paper proves still as effective.
“The wall is meant to inspire everyone to express their love, appreciation and thanksgiving to one another,” said Cindy Ng, a member of the organizing committee. The wall is not just meant for couples to express their love for one another, but also anyone who wants to send wishes to their children, parents or friends.
“I’m sure my members would be happy to see my note,” said Leonide Tan, cell group leader of N427, as she pasted her note on the wall. Her daughter, Taysha Tan, 6, had just finished writing a note which was addressed to her mother.
One note simply says, “I Love You”, while another states, “Thanks for being so patient with me.” There is even a note from members of cell group N419 addressed to senior pastor Kong Hee which reads, “Thank you very much!”
The Friendship Expression Wall is located near the reception counter both at Singapore Expo Hall 1 and Jurong West church. It will be on display till end of February.
