Hear the word of the LORD, O you nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd does his flock. — Jeremiah 31:10
DECLARE is a movement celebrating the united proclamation of the Word of God in families, nations and generations! From young to old, families across the Body of Christ gather over 3 days to read a portion of scripture from Genesis to Revelation in their native tongues, and hear the Word afresh.
Like in the days of Josiah and Nehemiah [2 Kings 22, Nehemiah 8], the public reading of the Word restores a spiritual plumbline and turns hearts back to God. With Christian ministries worldwide endorsing 2020 as the Global Year of the Bible, come and declare the Word from the islands to Jerusalem!
One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts. — Psalms 145:4
Date/ Time: 27 May (12pm) to 30 May 2020 (8pm)
Venue: Rhema Hall (Bukit Timah), or Armenian Church
Who may participate: Register or join a group of 12 to 50 readers to declare the Word together!
DECLARE is organised by the Arts Collective, a ministry of The Bible Society of Singapore, and is supported by Elijah 7000.

DECLARE is an expression of unity, to bring together different parts of the Body of Christ in thanksgiving, celebration and worship in a City or Nation.
In 2017, DECLARE began as a Bible proclamation anchored with The Bible Society of Singapore, the oldest missionary organisation in Singapore. It has been held annually over the feast of Pentecost, or Shavuot, as a time commemorating the Law given to Moses at Sinai [Exodus 34] and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Jerusalem [Acts 2]. Since 2017, over 1,700 readers from all age groups and backgrounds have participated, with more than 2 dozen languages and dialects noted.
In 2019, communities in Okinawa, Japan, and Kandy – Sri Lanka organized DECLARE, sharing stories of personal revival, family restoration, and children desiring to read more! In 2020, we see more nations and islands joining in one voice [Psalm 22:27], with DECLARE 2020 culminating in Israel [Isaiah 2:2-3].
Our desire is to see the church without walls across the nations proclaiming the Word of God in 2020 and beyond, and witnessing its transformative power [Isaiah 55:11]. Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are considering organising DECLARE in your city or local community. We would love to get connected and support you!
