In 1995, the Council on Christian Social Concerns of The Methodist Church in Singapore initiated the formation of the Methodist Co-operative Society. The raison d'etre is based on Acts 4:32 which describes the lifestyle of the early disciples who were of one mind and heart. Through their sharing with one another; they provided a fine example of a caring society.
On 25 July 1995, the Methodist Co-operative Society Ltd was formed. The assets and liabilities of the Serangoon District Co-operative Thrift and Loan Society were subsequently transferred to the Methodist Co-operative Society Ltd. The latter was in fact our first Methodist Co-operative Society.


Vision, mission, goals

Our vision is to be a premier co-operative society based on biblical values.

我们的愿景 – 成为基于圣经原则的领先合作社

Our mission is to develop, manage and invest in social enterprises to meet the needs of the community.

我们的使命 – 为社会的需要,发展、管理和投资于社会企业

The goals of the Methodist Co-operative Society Limited are:

  • To promote economic interest of members in accordance with co-operative principles;
  • To encourage co-operative, self-help, mutual assistance and sharing amongst the members;
  • To develop, provide or procure childcare, educational, legal, medical, welfare, recreational, housing and transport services for the benefit of its members;
  • To promote the buying and selling of consumer goods, medical services and paraphernalia on a co-operative basis;
  • To promote healthy, wholesome and simple lifestyles;
  • To establish and operate such co-operative schemes, ventures and projects subject to the approval of the Registrar.



In alignment with our mission to develop, manage and invest in social enterprises, MCSL has adopted an evaluation framework based on 2 fundamental aspects of life: the basic needs of living, and the stages of life.

The 4 by 4 matrix provides an easy-to-understand framework that helps us stay on track when making decisions about what type of businesses (services) to invest in.
