This weekend the Norwegian Seamen’s Church in Singapore celebrated it’s 60 years in the country. The first Norwegian sailor priest came to Singapore in 1955 where a church committee including the Norwegian, Swedish and Danish consul was formed. Now 60 years later, the church staff still invites people over for waffles and a dip in the pool.

“The 60th anniversary of the Seamen’s Church in Singapore was celebrated on Saturday and Sunday. It was a wonderful anniversary weekend with a full house. THANK YOU to all those who helped and all those who came. We are embarking on another 60 years with joy and anticipation,” the Seamen’s Church writes in their newsletter.
