Neighourhood Christian Communities

“THE CHURCH AS FAMILY CANNOT REACH ALL HER POSSIBILITIES AS CHURCH UNLESS SHE IS DIVIDED INTO COMMUNITIES SMALL ENOUGH TO FOSTER CLOSE HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS.”

– Pope John Paul II, Apostolic Exhortation,  “Ecclesia in Africa” 1995

About Us

The Neighbourhood Christian Community (NCC) is a small group of Catholics living in the same neighbourhood, coming together as a community to live and share our faith with one another through prayer, worship, service, fellowship and mission.

The importance and characteristics of NCCs are emphasized by the late Pope John Paul II as follows:

They should be places engaged in evangelizing themselves, so that subsequently they can bring the Good News to others;

They should be communities which pray and listen to God’s Word, encourage the members themselves to take on responsibility, learn to live an ecclesial life, and reflect on different human problems in the light of the Gospel.

These communities are to be committed to living Christ’s love for everybody, a love which transcends the limits of the natural solidarity of clans, tribes or other interest groups.

Our Vision

To visit the homebound and bring Holy Communion to them.

To pray for the sick, in particular the Divine Mercy prayer for the sick and the dying.

To come together as support groups at wakes and/or conduct prayers during the wake.

To have masses within the community, so that the sick and homebound could be brought in to be anointed and prayed over.

To be an extension for the St Vincent de Paul to reach out to those who have financial difficulties etc.

To have home catechism for children in the same zones, so as to encourage friendships to grow and build a foundation of faith and cell group as our children enter into adulthood.
