JULEBASAR

Den danske Sømandskirke holder hvert år en stemningsfuld julebasar. Julebasaren er med til at få den danske julestemning helt til Singapore. 

Julebasaren får kirken til at summe af liv og dufte af jul. Der vil være mulighed for at købe hjemmelavede adventskranse, knasende småkager og dansk julepynt. Julen skal også smages. Til julebasaren kan man handle ind til det danske julebord. Om man er til flæskesteg eller rullepølse, eller om det er grødrisen og vaniljestangen som mangler, så kan det købes her. På selve dagen vil man kunne købe smørrebrød, hotdogs og æbleskiver. 
 

Praktiske informationer

Den Danske Sømandskirke ligger på Mount Faber og parkeringsmulighederne omkring kirken begrænset. Derfor har vi arrangeret en gratis shuttle bus fra den offentlige parkeringsplads ved Seah IM (Modsat Harbour Front Centre), shuttlebussen vil køre frem og tilbage hele dagen. 

Åbningstider: 
Lørdag kl.11.00 til 16.00
Søndag kl.11.00 til 16.00
(Eksklusiv åbning KUN for medlemmer af Sømandskirken lørdag kl.10.00 til 11.00 med gratis adgang)

Indgang til julebasaren koster SGD2. Det anbefales, at man medbringer kontanter, hvis man ønsker at købe noget ved de forskellige stande. Overskuddet fra julebasaren går til kirkens drift.
 

Frivillig til Julebasaren

Basaren er en begivenhed, der bliver til med hjælp fra mange af de herboende danskere. Her dekoreres smukke adventskranse, bages småkager, hakkes løg til hotdogs og smøres smørrebrød i lange baner. Uden alle de frivillige arbejdstimer ville det store arrangement ikke kunne finde sted. 

De forskellige aktiviteter ligger både i ugen op til og i selve basar-weekenden. Man er meget velkommen til at hjælpe med flere forskellige aktiviteter. Vi har det hyggeligt og sjovt, mens vi arbejder, og det er en rigtig god måde at møde andre danskere i Singapore på. 

 

EXPERIENCE THE SPIRIT OF A TRADITIONAL DANISH CHRISTMAS
The Danish Christmas Bazaar has become an institution in Singapore and is now in its 35th year! On the 23rd and 24th of November the Danish Seamen’s Church in Singapore is hosting its annual Christmas Bazaar. The beautiful indoor and outdoor surroundings of the old heritage building will be filled with handmade advent wreaths, beautiful Christmas decorations, Danish design items and yummy Christmas delicacies.

Throughout the weekend of November 23 & 24 The Danish Seamen’s Church will be buzzing with activity from the different food and decoration stalls. Christmas carols and a live ukulele band set the ambience for a stroll around the Church premises, where a dedicated group of volunteers display the result of the past weeks’ hard work of making decorations, traditional Christmas cookies and unpacking box after box of Danish Design items and delicacies.

The taste of Danish Christmas
At the bazaar itself we have made sure that you can try the traditional Danish open faced rye sandwiches with different meat and fish and classic toppings. For a sweet ending you can visit the cake stall that serves up homemade brownies, classic Danish “apple donuts” and ris a la mande.  

In our deli you can buy everything you need for a real Christmas lunch or Christmas dinner the Danish way – from the curried herring to the cherry sauce to top the classic ris a la mande dessert. 

Creative kids play corner
The kids are entertained in our creative play area, where homemade Christmas decorations are created with scrap materials (note: no drop off, parents must supervise). Both Saturday and Sunday we will also have a special guest visiting from the North Pole (Ho, Ho, Ho!) to greet all the nice kids with some special treats. All this can be enjoyed with our kids pass that can be required at the entrance for 15 SGD – incl. a kids meal including a hotdog, a soft drink and a sweet treat.

About Danish Seamen’s Church
The Danish Seamen’s Church is a small piece of Denmark in Singapore. It is not only a Church, but also a social and cultural meeting place for Danes in Singapore and the Danish seafarers docking in Singapore.  The beautiful red and white church is nestled in the lush greenery of Mount Faber and its distinct design draws the attention from both house guests and tourists. Originally, the building was made for one of Singapore’s richest and most powerful men, Tan Boo Liat, who named the house after his grandfather (Tan) Kim Ching, meaning ”Golden Bell” in Chinese – a name that has stuck with the Church until today. 
Everyone is welcome to visit the Church during our opening hours (Mon-Thurs: 9.00am to 5.00 pm).
