Church Canteen Food
Please note that the canteen will be selling food that is bought from a licensed food vendor.

The church is not allowed to cook and sell food on our premises, as we do not have the approved licence from the National Environment Agency and have also not fulfilled the safety requirements of the Singapore Civil Defence Force.

We thank you for your continuous support and look forward to seeing you at our canteen for your regular Sunday breakfast.
