Spread the festive cheer!
In view of COVID-19, we would like to remind those who are participating in our “Just An Extra Chair” programme to take the necessary precautions to protect themselves and follow official guidelines.
Do continue to register with us if you’re still interested to be a ‘Host’ or a ‘Guest’ for our coming festive outreach programmes.
We would like to urge all Singaporeans to practise good personal hygiene as part of our efforts in fighting this virus!
Chinese New Year is just around the corner and we want to spread a little festive cheer.
Fifth year in the running, Just An Extra Chair is something that we want to do for you. We want to connect people who have nowhere to go during festive seasons such as Chinese New Year with people who have an extra place (or maybe five) at their dining table.
There is no better time to share cultural experiences than the joyous festive season!
If you’re celebrating Chinese New Year, why not invite someone to share in the festivities? If you’re not, why not open your home to those who do celebrate but are unable to go home for the festivities?
If you are open to hosting some guests over at your house for Chinese New Year, please be in touch. We will match you up with someone and get you acquainted so you can have a great time together.
Hosts will receive a Let’s Makan kit—complete with a hosting guide, recipe cards and other useful items. All you need to do is indicate your interest as either a church community, or an individual.
As a Church community:
Your church will collate the total number of interested Hosts and then contact us to arrange for collection of the Let’s Makan kit.
As an individual:
Our team will then contact you to arrange for the collection of your Let’s Makan kit.
An artifact of our hurried city life is that people don’t usually get a chance to stop and look at someone in the eyes, let alone have a proper conversation. We want to spread some cheers and create real, meaningful connection among people.
People who know they will be spending the festive occasion alone can sign up as guests. We will match you up with people who have offered to share a meal. When you fill up the form, tell us a little about yourself and the dinner party (for hosts) so we can find you a good match.
