In the continuing quest to support English literacy development in the community, our church has introduced The Reading Bus programme to our neighbouring school, SRK (C) Chung Hua Pujut.

The Reading Bus was a resounding success when our church first introduced it in Tudan last year.

More than 700 students from Primary One to Primary Three were present when the mobile library programme was announced to them this morning during assembly.

It is hoped that 100 students will register for the free fortnightly session starting on March 26 at church (Isaiah Room) from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

Online registration form can be downloaded here:

The goal of the three-month programme is to increase and improve the English proficiency among the lower primary school students, especially those from low income families.

Along the same plan and purpose, Piasau Baptist Church and Gan En Methodist Church are now introducing the Reading Bus programme in Taman Tunku and Riam respectively.

Please do contact the church office if you wish to serve in this ministry – and we warmly welcome you!
