Our Favourite Recording Spot!


We just want to thank God with a grateful heart for His provision of a nicely-furnished Lounge which has become a prime location of choice for our video shoots! We also WARMLY WELCOME new students who are beginning the journey with us to enjoy the facility for Christian fellowship too (while following safe measurement measures).

To date, our Lounge has been chosen for a good number of worship sessions, interviews and even preaching sessions recorded on camera. This room will continue to serve the EAST community well as a place of rest, fellowship and yes, good videos!

See the video below for a worship session recorded at the Lounge!
