Neighbourhood Christian Community

“If you live in the vicinity of an NCC, you are automatically a member of it – even if you do not attend any of its meetings.” by Archbishop Nicholas Chia (The Catholic News – August 16, 2009, Vol 59, No17)

The Neighbourhood Christian Community (NCC) is a New Way of being Church and is the foundational base of the universal Catholic Church. It is not a church organisation, ministry or interest group. It is simply a small group of Catholics, living in the same neighbourhood, coming together as a community to live and share their faith with one another through prayer, worship, service, fellowship and mission.

The objective of a NCC is to help people within the community grow their faith, live the Gospel life and foster Christian love and support for each other in times of need.

The 4 marks of a NCC:

We are One – We are united with the parish and with each other.

We are Holy – We are Christ-centred, engaging in gospel-sharing and other forms of prayer.

We are Neighbours – We welcome everybody, and are not exclusive.

We Serve all – We serve and evangelise (mission in action).

At baptism, you are automatically a member of the NCC regardless of age, profession and race.

We strongly encourage you to take part in the activities of an NCC near your home and have FUN together.
