CCIS will be held from 16 - 24 Dec 2020
2020 is a year filled with anxieties and uncertainties – mainly due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic which had disrupted every aspect of society. Economies have crashed, joblessness increased, hospitals overwhelmed and lives were lost. Travels which had traditionally been the mainstay of the Christmas Holiday Season have grind to a halt with several airlines folding up. But the HOPE that had seen us through since the beginning of the year has not been extinguished. If anything, many will gather with beloved family members and bring on the cheers that Christmases traditionally bring. This year, I’ll be HOME FOR CHRISTMAS!.
Christmas will always be remembered and celebrated by Christians from all over the world as an acknowledgement of God’s GIFT to us in the person of Jesus Christ. He who came as a babe in a manger in Bethlehem more than 2000 years ago, brought HOPE to a dismay world and this story must continue to be told, especially today.
2020 marks the 17th year for Celebrate Christmas in Singapore (CCIS). The Lights of Orchard Road in Singapore will be still lit but the stages, interactive kiosks and the many commercial booths that line this iconic street will be absent.
How do we continue the celebrations and bring the Good News to everyone? CCIS will be bringing it through the digital platform. From 16th December to 24 December, online interactive activities through Zoom (16th - 23rd), performances will be stream online (21st - 24th). If you’re HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, tune in to our Program to celebrate with everyone in different parts of the World for a Celebration which had never been attempted before.
CCIS is for everyone regardless of race, language or religion, because hope is for everyone! Come on down and immerse yourselves in the Joy and Hope of Christmas!
