The early years of a new assembly: Bethesda Gospel Hall, Singapore, 1864-1914
[extract] The Brethren movement began in Singapore when four believers met to break bread in a place known simply as the Mission Rooms on 3 July 1864. It is not clear how these four people met, but their act in remembering the Lord Jesus Christ that Sunday was significant in that they met simply as believers, as a 'non-sectarian' assembly. While the only other places where the Lord was remembered were the denominational churches that had their own buildings, these four believers met in a little room at 108 Bencoolen Street on the outskirts of the city.
