Christians and Catholics[edit]

It seems that many Singaporeans use the term "Christian" to mean non-Catholic Christians (a usage common even among Catholics themselves). This is peculiar enough to warrant a mention in the article, no? JREL (talk) 02:15, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Actually this is common in most Commonwealth English dialects as well as in US English. Of course, it is inaccurate, but that's colloquial parlance for you. Hendrick 99 (talk) 15:40, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Trinity Christian Centre[edit]

Trinity Christian Centre appears under 'Assemblies of God' churches, but someone recently added it to 'Pentecostal' as well. I had a look at the Centre's website and there is no indication of any affiliation to either the Assemblies of God or Pentecostal churches. Unless anyone else thinks otherwise or can clarify the situation, I have moved Trinity Christian Centre to 'Other churches'. Jacklee 00:01, 9 October 2006 (UTC) Yes, I can affirm that Trinity Christian Centre is an Assemblies of God church; I work there. The sr pastor is, in fact, the General Superintendent of the AG in Singapore.

Megachurches[edit]

Some churches are currently listed under the 'Megachurches' section. However, this section seems to be a little out of place as the other sections are Christian denominations. Shouldn't the churches in question be listed under the heading 'Independent churches'? Jacklee 00:05, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Should we include Missionary schools in this article?[edit]

I wonder if this section is really relevant to this article. Any comments? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Atticuslai (talkcontribs) 07:03, 22 December 2006 (UTC).

It is relevant to the presence of Christianity in Singapore. After all, we're talking about Christianity as a whole, not specific denominations or simply churches. Ariedartin JECJY Talk 18:23, 22 December 2006 (UTC)
