A for Aleph, EAST Aleph!


Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. At East Asia School of Theology (EAST), the term EAST Aleph refers to a two-week immersion experience for new students. It occurs each July before the start of a new academic year and is considered the start of matriculation for EAST’s academic programs. Below is a brief report on this year’s EAST Aleph (2-16 July 2021) written by Mrs Josephine Goh-Lew, an EAST Resident Faculty and the Director of Mentoring Groups. It also includes a reflection on the event by a new student, Mr Daniel Yoncer, who went through the actual EAST Aleph.

EAST Mission Hub: A Facility to Bless the Nations


Since the founding of East Asia School of Theology in 1992, the Lord has provided suitable places to nurture the school. In the initial years at a meeting room in Cru’s Great Commission Training Centre expanding to a larger rented facility inside Parish of Christ Church that became home to the growing EAST family for 25 years. In 2018, thrust into a period of transition with a building re-development in Christ Church, the Lord led the Board of Cru Asia Ltd and the leadership of EAST to a freehold commercial building in the Joo Chiat area. Today, 118 Joo Chiat Road is home to East Asia School of Theology as the EAST Mission Hub.

The Worldwide Day of Prayer (WWDP) on 31 March 2021 at EAST, 118 Joo Chiat Road was a time of community, corporate prayer, and “come and see” for the EAST faculty, staff and students.

After a time of worship and reflection, adjunct faculty Ng Khim Fatt gave the heartfelt exhortation from the Word. It was given  to “Come and See” what God is doing around and among us. That was followed by an hour of prayer walk around the neighbourhood in five separate walking routes, lined out by students Choong Voon and Jasmine.

Budding Forth a New Garden

We have a small plot of gardening space at the front of our Joo Chiat Campus which is coming alive with the green fingers of our resident faculty-and-botanist, Roland Tan.

The EAST garden has always been a place of refreshing, relaxation, and familiarity as the flora greets us every day we come to school. We hope the garden will do the same for our passers-by along Joo Chiat Road.
