As a measure of comfort to grieving families and to remind us of Christ’s promise of an eternal life, The Methodist Church in Singapore established The Garden of Remembrance, a Christian columbarium to house cremated remains of and to honour and remember our beloved deceased family and friends. While the pain of losing a loved one is by no means lessened, families can hold fast to the hope that we will one day meet each other again in Christ’s presence.
The Garden of Remembrance is designed to resemble a pair of open palms coming together in prayer. Clothed in an abundance of natural light, the building provides comfort and solace to all who pass through – a testament to God, the giver of comfort and peace, who through His goodness sustains us not only in this life but also for life eternal.
The various private balconies and terraces overlooking the lush greenery and tranquil surroundings offer families and loved ones a quiet and peaceful space for prayer and contemplation as they reflect on the memories of loved ones who have passed; drawing near to God and enjoying His presence.
With 40,000 niches built over four stories on a vast hectare of land, the Columbarium’s wide and breezy corridors and walkways offer a spacious divide between the niche blocks, giving families the comfort and privacy they need.
Single, double and premium niche options are available at The Garden of Remembrance. The premium niches allow family members and loved ones to be housed together in a shared area with fully customizable plaques to celebrate the lives of those who have passed.
Nine fully air-conditioned spaces are also available for Christian wakes, funeral and memorial services. Ranging from 1,000 to 2,250 sq feet with a seating capacity of 20 to 300 persons, the Chapel and memorial rooms of various sizes are available to cater to different needs.
To comfort and to remind of Christ’s promise of an eternal life
