Welcome to City Connect!
City Connect was set up on 31st May 2018 with the purpose of serving and connecting with the marketplace community and the community at large in and around Chinatown, Tanjong Pagar and Fairfield Methodist Church (FFMC).
Our aim is to provide the lunch-time crowd at Maxwell Food Centre and vicinity with a comfortable environment (air-conditioned and free wifi) at the Encounter Lounge situated on the Ground Floor of FFMC.
We are open on every Thursday and Friday (except Public Holiday) from 11.30am – 2.30pm. Our guests would need to pack their lunch in.
It’s a great place to have your lunch (far from the madding crowd at nearby hawker centres) and a definite opportunity to have a relaxed catch-up time with your colleagues and friends. Passers-by (tourists and visitors) are welcomed to seek shelter from the sun and rain, to rest your weary feet and to even take a break before you move on to your next appointment or meeting.
A team of befrienders is on duty to assist you and even provide a listening ear for your cares and concerns (if you need one).
Need to catch up on some reading and news update? We have a book table with varied resources (newspapers, magazines and books) to cater to your interest.
Come and join us! We look forward to seeing you.
