The kelong at Batam is owned by a Christian couple situated offshore from Batam near Pulau Cemara. It is about 15km south east of Batam, Indonesia and about 60km from Singapore.

The kelong also serves as a Christian ministry for reaching out to the sea tribes through teaching English. English is taught to the children of five surrounding islands. Through teaching ministry relationships are built with the islanders and this enables the ministry to befriend them and to reach out to them.

The teachers are Indonesians and graduates of the Bethany School of Missions in Batam. The kelong is used as our base camp and headquarters. The teachers use a wooden boat for transportation. Friends who come for weekend retreats find the facility idyllic for building relations and bonding; a place to experience rest and peace away from the busyness of city living.
