Our History

Over the years, Shalom BP has seen many changes but God's grace has sustained us through difficult and good times.

Here are some notable events in the church’s history as we witness God’s provision throughout the years.


Before Shalom was formed, God had already been laying the foundation for this new ministry. In 1976, Sembawang BP Church graciously seconded one of their full-time Bible college students, Tan Choon Seng, to Grace BP Church to serve as student pastor. And as Grace BP Church grew, its Session commissioned Pastor Tan and a small group of brothers and sisters to start a new church in Changi.


On 6 September 1981, we held our first worship service  – with just 22 adults and 4 children in St. George’s Chapel in Changi.

Shalom’s early years were difficult. The area around St George’s Chapel was sparsely populated, and church growth was slow despite outreach efforts further afield to Tampines. But by God’s grace, Shalomites persevered and continued to be faithful in worship and service.


In 1987, God providentially led us to purchase a plot of land at Loyang Besar Close and construct our own church building. Shalomites gave sacrificially to support the building project, and our new home was completed in 1990.


In 2004, as our church grew, we embarked on the second phase of the church building project, and constructed the extension you see on our premises today.

As we look back on our history, we turn to God in gratitude for His gracious provision, and give Him all the glory!
