Heart to Heart: One Church’s Inter-generational Journey

L-R: Ms Charissa, Rev Dr Henry Wong, Ms Ting Siew Lee


What does it take for the generations to walk together in unity?

Covenant Presbyterian Church (CPC) has been on a journey to foster inter-generational connections. Pastor Rev Dr Henry Wong and Ms Charissa, a next-generation lay leader, shared their journey and learning insights in a fireside chat facilitated by Ms Ting Siew Lee of Capelle’s Church Equip on 8 August 2023 at East Asia School of Theology. This was followed by breakouts into three smaller groups for guided discussions.

Church leaders and pastors from some 28 denominational and independent churches were in attendance for the event. During the breakouts, Pastor Henry, Charissa, and a church Elder, Joan, were the resource persons in each of the groups. The group members answered questions like “What are the mindset changes needed to build stronger intergenerational connections?” “What has worked well in your church that you can share to help others?” “Who needs to be involved for the church to better engage the generations?” etc.

A Community Together

Design by Blessed Ong.

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17.

Most likely to be a familiar verse to most of us, we know that “iron sharpens iron” means that we Christians are meant to keep each other accountable and “sharp” for the Lord.


What does this look like in our daily lives? We should make all efforts to interact and communicate with our Christian communities, even during inconvenient times such as these. Despite feeling comfortable at home, we should take the time and energy to go for physical services and bible studies.


Iron need to come into contact with other iron to sharpen each other, as we should as Christians motivating and building up each other.
