Sunday, 24th April 2022


is delivered in-person & on zoom by our minister,
Revd. Chee Keong Yong
Revd. Chee introduces his sermon theme this week:

Our Scripture Reading is:
Gospel: John 20: 19-31* (*click for online Bible)

In verse 31 of the text for the Gospel today, John summarizes the purpose of biblical Christianity: “But these are written that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through believing you may have life in his name.”

In a nutshell, John’s intention for writing his version of the Gospel is that you and I will come to affirm that Jesus is the Messiah and in so doing, we may have life.

Last Sunday, we considered the question of the angels to the women – “Why do you seek the living among the dead?”
However, the women were not seeking the living; they were seeking for a dead body to anoint.

I read in the news today, of a young man who took his life while attending a funeral. This kind of news is never easy to stomach and it does not help us much in a world where life seems so little. There is so much killing and there’s no need to get into the politics of it. Wars of all kinds bring misery all over.

If only, we seek “life” rather than “death”. The crudeness of Thomas’ demand to see and touch the wounds of Jesus can be off-putting. He is known down through centuries as “doubting Thomas”. There is a saving factor here.

Remember the time when Jesus heard the news about the death of Lazarus. The disciples attempted to dissuade Jesus from going to him. But not Thomas. He was stout-hearted and cried out, “Let us go with him so that we may die with him” (John 11:16). Here, we see a different side of Thomas. Thomas wanted to be certain of his faith in Jesus and thus the awkwardness of his demand.

Would you want to be certain of your faith in Jesus, too?
Are there any impediments to your faith in Jesus? Hand it over to Jesus like Thomas.

Come with us this Sunday as we journey together in exploring Jesus.


THIS SUNDAY!  “Alone on the Altar – Calvary’s Lamb”
Special live music from the Adventist International Church Choir will be performed at our Morning Service THIS WEEK (24th April) the First Sunday after Easter).
Not to be missed!!

Please scroll down below for important notices
information about Fellowship at ICB, Thursday Prayer meetings, and New Outreach Goals.

Scroll down, too, for news:
In-person Evening services have restarted on Sundays. Worship starts at 6.30pm.
at BCGH (Bangkok Christian Guesthouse)

Please pray
a) for those who have contracted Covid19, including those in our own congregation and their families.
b) for the refugee families and other displaced persons residing in Bangkok, for their safety and well-being as well as positive progress in securing permanent resettlement solutions to their plight.
c) for the people of Ukraine both in the country and refugees as well as those caught up in wars and conflicts in other countries, including in neighbouring Myanmar.
d) for the people in Yemen, Afghanistan, Mozambique and the Horn of Africa (Ethiopia and Somalia) who needlessly lack both food and medical supplies and are close to starvation. We pray that the recently agreed truce in fighting in both The Yemen and Ethiopia will transform into  permanent endings of hostilities in those countries.

ICB Morning Services
(in person and on Zoom)

At our new Location
SCC Creative Space Coffee Shop
Student Christian Center
328/1 Phyathai Road
which is a very short walking distance from BTS Ratchatewi.
Click here for Google maps reference or follow the map at top of this newsletter.
Please remember the COVID Code:
All are advised to follow social distancing to keep others safe. A temperature check is required. We have members who have been infected lately and we do not wish others to be infected. If you are not feeling well, please stay at home and join us on Zoom. For safety precautions, the ICB Council has advised against any form of fellowship potlucks for the time being. Bottled water will be available.

If you plan to come in your own car:
It is best to enter Phayathai Road from the Patumwan intersection (at Discovery Center/MBK) and drive across Hua Chang (elephant head) Bridge. Immediately over the bridge, turn left into the SCC/CCT compound just before Evergreen Place and Asia Hotel.
There are limited parking spaces (free) in the compound but if full, you can park in the CCT Tower Building at the back of this same compound (there maybe a small charge p/hr)

ICB Evening Service has resumed
EVERY Sunday at BCGH.

 Worship starts at 6.30pm.
Join in-person (only) at Bangkok Christian Guesthouse, off Convent Road (BTS Saladaeng / MRT Silom stations).
Please bring your friends
Below is a map of how to get to BCGH from BTS and MRT stations. Just a 5-8 min walk. 
Short cut hint: from BTS concourse floor, enter Central Silom Complex and exit on the ground floor to Soi Saladaeng 2. Turn right and walk for 2 minutes. BCGH is on the left (before Convent Rd).
(From MRT, take lift from concourse up to skywalk level and walk to BTS station then left into Central Complex.)
Fellowship is essential for the wellbeing of any true community – but it’s not so easy when we cannot meet personally face-to-face, though hopefully many of us will be soon.
At ICB, we wish to develop new ways to extend Christian fellowship among all of us during 2022. We invite you to help with your ideas for such fellowship activities.

Mary Santhi has recently taken on the role of ICB Fellowship Chair but she needs a committee to lead!
Mary cannot undertake the work alone and so she is inviting you to join her in one of the most important and joyful aspects of the church which is appreciated by everybody.
Please send an email to Mary and she will respond by telling you more:

One of Mary’s early ideas for Fellowship is to recognise everybody’s birthday so we can all pray for every person on her/his special day. Birthday greetings are now appearing on the ‘ICB Morning Service’ LINE app. Unfortunately, our list of birthdays is far from complete and so, if you are in agreement, please let Mary know by email your special day (your birth year won’t be posted without your consent).
