Posted by temasektimes on July 14, 2012
The Festival of Praise 2012 which was scheduled to be held soon was cancelled due to City Harvest Church’s recent woes.
In a statement issued on its Facebook yesterday, Canon James Wong, the Founder & President, Festival of Praise Fellowship wrote that the Committee had decided not to go ahead with the event this year in view of the ‘challenging period’ CHC is currently undergoing:
City Harvest Church has been under intense public scrutiny of late after its founder Kong Hee was charged along with four other board members last week for misusing S$50 million dollars of the church’s funds to further the music career of Kong’s wife Ho Yeow Sun.
Kong has adamantly denied the charges and CHC has issued a public statement expressing its support for him.
