Soul Food

Apart from our shared love for Jesus, we at OYP also share a great love for food so that tells you a little bit about our choice of words here!

But as it says in scripture,"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God." - Luke 4:4

It is our hope that the stories and reflections you find here will serve to encourage and bless you on your faith journey. We hope it serves as a reminder that none of us are really alone!

Post-Retreat: 5 Tips on Keeping your Fire Ablaze

by Alexis Lim Zhen Ting There’s something mysterious about being within the fences of 2 Lor Low Koon. In there, my heart’s quietly and stably ablaze – after the initial flash of red and yellow sparks, I find my fire dancing to beat of the Lord’s soft whispers, especially throughout the 10 days I’ve spent […]

Testimony & Thanksgiving: Coming back to the Father’s House

by Julian Lim I first heard about OYP in December 2016, when a good friend of mine invited me to go for the School of Witness (SOW). Back then I was just a Sunday Catholic, struggling to find reason and meaning to spend just an hour a week in church.  At the same time, I […]

5 Places In Singapore You Never Thought To Pray At

By Rachel Kenyon Often we think that prayer means to sit in a chapel for hours on end, repeating set prayers, but being in a fast-paced society like Singapore, we cannot “afford the time” to pray.

What ensued instead was a very unexpected “praying over” session, where for the first time in many years, I was asked to […]


by Chloe Woo For most of my life, I had neglected the role of the Holy Spirit in the Trinity. I prayed to Jesus, I prayed to God the Father, but somehow, I didn’t pay much attention to the Holy Spirit! It was only through OYP’s School of Witness (SOW) 2017 that I came to […]

by Mitchell Tan I recently attended the TREASURE Young Adults Encounter retreat, conducted by Office for Young People from 20th to 23rd April 2017where I took on the role of a small group facilitator. On the surface, it may seem like I sacrificed my weekends to help out, but in truth, I received so much […]
