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
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.
