Booktique is the first to sell books in the Church's history when we organised our Christmas book fair there in 2013. This time, we've invited other booksellers and craftmakers to join us. The book fair will be held outside the chapel and under the pavillion. 

We have curated over 100 titles and our vendors, too, have uniqie Christmas gift ideas for you. The migrant poets and Wesley Can will also be there to sell their books. So come and shop for gifts in a peaceful garden surrounded by sculptures. Save the date now for a once-in-a-lifetime book fair experience. Photography enthusiasts, don't forget to bring your camera to capture the experience and art around you! Start inviting your friends now! 

Visitors please note that the Church does not allow parking on its ground. Unauthorised vehicles will be towed away. Strictly no foods and drink, and smoking in the Church compound.
