Singapore Charismatic Renewal Started in 1972



Mr Thomas Franks, husband of EAST alumna, Ms Hannah Zhong, produced (and initially researched and wrote) a church history documentary video on the Charismatic renewal movement that started in 1972, dubbed Revival 1972: When the Holy Spirit stirred the schools of Singapore.

In the words of Thomas, “By documenting the sovereign move of the Holy Spirit in Singapore starting in 1972, the video aims to inspire the next generation to seek God & His purposes. So far, the documentary has had an amazing impact at live screenings in churches even over this weekend [of 23-24 July 2022]! … As we honour & remember God’s work in the past, may we also look ahead in hope to what God will do both now & in the future!”

The blurb for the video stated, “50 years ago, in July 1972, something remarkable happened in Singapore. A mighty move of the Holy Spirit. And it started in our schools. This move of the Spirit spread from the schools, to the churches, to the marketplace, to the masses. Revival. Hear the first-hand account of school children as they gave their lives to Jesus and were baptised in the Holy Spirit. Witness how their childlike faith inspired church and marketplace leaders.”

The video project is a Thirst Collective Production in collaboration with Salt & Light and Hope Singapore.
