Song Sawang Church was a church plant by NightLight to meet the needs of women who were putting their faith in Jesus. Meetings began about 5 years ago in a townhouse on Soi 10. Due to very high rental costs in the original building, ECB was willing to make available the auxiliary worship room.
Song Sawang has been worshiping on the ECB campus for 3 years now and is very grateful for the space and support. The church has been growing since moving onto the ECB campus but has also had its struggles as well. Currently an average of 30 women, men, and children attend Song Sawang on Sundays. We praise the Lord that one of the men who recently decided to follow Jesus is playing the drums and Song Sawang can now worship on most Sundays with more instrumental support! Song Sawang has also added a more formal program for children which includes: a “kids zone” where children can sit with their friends but still worship with the adults as well as a brief children’s sermon after which they are dismissed to attend children’s church with trained lay leaders.
Song Sawang has been in the process of coming under the jurisdiction of the 6th district of the CCT (Church of Christ in Thailand) for 3 years now and hoping for final acceptance soon or will need to seek jurisdiction with some other group.
Song Sawang Church meets every Sunday afternoon at ECB from 2:30-4:30pm. The services are all in Thai.

Song Sawang is not a ministry of ECB, but we are pleased to partner with and provide meeting space for this group to assist them in providing their services to the city and people of Bangkok.
