Holy Week & Easter Letter 2023

28 March 2023

Dear KKMC members and friends


As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; but they were kept from recognising him.

Luke 24:15-16

Since young, walking has been so functional, bringing me from one place to another. I would often find a shortcut and means of transportation to minimise walking. But I started to enjoy walking when I met my ex-girlfriend, who has become my wife. The walk became even more exciting when I learned to walk with Jesus.

Every year without fail, most churches would commemorate the season of Lent when we remember the events leading up to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. So likewise, with a history of 129 years and the relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions, KKMC is committed to observe the season on a full scale to enhance our walk with Jesus as individuals and the church.

We may walk with Jesus every year for all 40 days of Lent but be blinded to His presence just like the couple on the road to Emmaus. We may attend all the services during Holy Week but lack the sensitivity and expectation to encounter our Lord Jesus Christ.

As the church embarks on the direction of “Together We Grow + Serve”, our prayer in the season of Lent is to focus on the person of Jesus Christ, through our fundamental core value of “Togetherness”.  Therefore, from Palm Sunday till Easter Sunday, we have lined up a series of events to encourage our walk with Jesus in His last week on earth, according to the gospel of Luke. We pray that the walk will compel us to desire the presence of Christ more intensely so that together We Grow to be faithful disciples and authentic community, and We Serve in loving outreach and bold witness to the glory of the Risen Lord.
