Wycliffe Singapore celebrated its 35th anniversary on 2 November 2019 at Grace Baptist Church in Singapore in a unique way. Through a family day event for ages 7 to 100, nearly 100 people gathered to share this joyous day with Wycliffe Singapore, while discovering that missions and Bible translation can be for them too.

Named “Missions is for YOU”, the afternoon event was composed of various fun activities. On top of worship, a buffet lunch, children’s programs, games and other activities, the highlight was three interesting workshops for both adults and teenagers, which were:
