We will join together

 this Easter Sunday


9th April 2023

at 10.00 am

Bangkok Christian College


Our service will be conducted by our minister,
Revd. Chee Keong Yong, who will also deliver his sermon this Easter morning
This week’s theme: “Why do you seek the living among the dead?”

Scripture Readings for this week:
Old Testament: Psalm 118 (1,2, 14-24)*
New Testament: Acts 10:34-43*
Scripture: Colossians 3:1-4*

Gospel: John 20:11-18*
(*click for online Bible)
Pastor Chee introduces this week’s theme:
Why do you seek the living among the dead?


What do we look for in life? It is a simple question but the reply may be varied. The reply is dependent on a host of factors too. Some are guarded in how to respond to the question. Others may offer a ridiculous reply thinking it is a joke question.

So the question from the angels to the early witnesses of the resurrection is rather puzzling. Were the witnesses looking for the living, first of all? None of them were prepared for the events of the first Easter morning. Their hearts were weighed down with grief and sorrow. They certainly were not looking for the living among the dead.

So what do we look for this Easter? What do we tell our younger people as we prepare them for this Easter service? Some are waiting anxiously for the Easter egg hunt. It is a time of fun and eating sugar-laden chocolate eggs. I was converted to Christianity in my late teens. So I have never in all my life participated in an egg hunt. I wonder what it is like to look for hidden eggs.

I guess that there are more things in life to look for – happiness, carefree life, wealth, etc.
I wonder if our pursuit of any other than the risen Christ is linked to the question from the angels.

Come this Sunday and join us in worshipping the Risen Christ.

If you are wanting to attend a Good Friday service, there is one available at 2.00 pm at Christ Church Bangkok on Soi Convent (corner with Sathorn Road).

ICB Sunday Evening Worship at
Bangkok Christian Guesthouse (BCGH)
has been suspended until further notice.
Please contact Reverend Chee if you would be interested in having evening services restarted.

We, at ICB, support displaced individuals and families in Bangkok with regular financial support through Life Raft International.

We also offer congregational, emotional and spiritual assistance.
Who qualifies?
Those who have been granted (or are applying for) recognition as refugees by UNHCR.
Why do we need to help these people?
Ongoing support is needed to help them bridge the gap while they seek and wait for resettlement in another country, which most often takes many years.
UNHCR recognition very rarely means they can live and work freely in their country of asylum.

ICB URGENTLY needs people like YOU!

Owing to several people leaving ICB and Thailand over the past months, the ICB Church Council is seeking people to fill the following positions as soon as possible:

  • Outreach – continuing contact with and support for our 8 social service partners
  • Worship – overseeing Church services
  • Fellowship – organising ICB community activities
  • Membership – welcoming new people to our church and maintaining contact with all members.
  • Personnel and Property – overseeing needs of our employees and facilities

None of these positions requires specialist skills nor a large amount of time.
All you need is the motivation to help us to develop our ICB community and outreach partners with Jesus as our guide.

To find out more, please contact
Cameron (Council Chair)              or Pastor Chee  

ICB – Caring for Displaced People through partnership Life Raft International 

An updated document relating to the above has now been uploaded to the Policies section of our website. The ICB Council has been working with Life Raft International for many years in seeking to relocate people to various countries for resettlement. The uploaded document gives clear parameters of our relationship with Life Raft International.

Fellowship is essential for the wellbeing of any true community – Now that we can all meet personally face-to-face, we need to resume regular social events together.
At ICB, we wish to develop new ways to extend Christian fellowship among all of us during 2023.
We invite you to help with your ideas for weekly and occasional fellowship activities.
