Church Without Walls

Find a need and meet it ... find a hurt and heal it.

Our History

The launch of the Church Without Walls ministries in 1996 was inspired by a word from God to Pastor Kong and Sun—to build a “church without walls”; a church that loves God wholeheartedly and loves people fervently.

Armed with the vision, and compassion in our hearts, our team of staff and volunteers went to the neighbourhoods and reached out to children, the elderly, persons with special needs and their families. Many of these came from low income families, and many were broken and lonely. The pioneering team was inexperienced and unequipped, but through faith, prayer, passion and sheer hard work, we connected with the families, met their needs, and shared the love of God with them.

Fast forward 25 years later, there are many needs and hurts still out there and many broken lives that still need Jesus. We remain steadfast in our aim to bring the love of Christ outside the four walls of the church.

If you know of someone who needs befriending, emotional support or a helping hand, do write in to info@chc.org.sg. We would like to see how we can be of help to them.

Children

Children

Home visitations are a vital part of our outreach to children as it allows us to identify their needs and get to know their family background. Through financial assistance, tuition programmes and other fun activities, we engage the children in practical and effective ministry. Impacted by the love and fun they experience in Harvest Kidz, the children in turn reach out to their family, classmates, neighbours and friends. Our mission is to continue to love, care for and inspire the next generation to become all that God has created them to be.

Elderly

The outreach to the elderly aims to bring the reality of Christ’s love into the lives of the seniors of society. Many of those we reach out to are barely able to care for their own basic needs, let alone go for their medical appointments.

Persons with Special Needs

Persons with Special Needs

Jesus for All Minds (JAMs) aims to share and demonstrate the love and power of the gospel to individuals with special needs, giving them an opportunity to receive the salvation of Christ, develop a stronger sense of self-worth and live their lives to the fullest potential that God has purposed for them. As they learn to believe in themselves and grow in confidence, their talents and abilities are discovered. Some of our JAMs members have participated and won medals in the Special Olympics in Beijing and Greece, while others have performed on stage, and took part in art competitions.

Youth-At-Risk

Youth-At-Risk

Our outreach to society’s youth-at-risk is one of befriending and mentoring young people who are more vulnerable to problem behaviours, substance abuse, involvement in gangs, fights and such. Understanding that several factors such as family background, need for identity, and a sense of acceptance and belonging all come into play, our aim is to provide guidance, pastoral care and a leg-up for youths to get on the path to overcoming their circumstances and building resilience. Our outreach also involves working with young ex-offenders, helping them integrate back to society.

City H❤️mes – Homes with a Heart

City H❤️mes (Homes with a Heart)

Every child deserves a loving home. A foster home offers vulnerable children the opportunity to grow up in a healthy family environment. Foster care is not adoption, rather, it is a temporary arrangement to meet the emergency care and needs of a child. Our hope is that through foster families in CHC, vulnerable children will benefit from a safe, stable and nurturing Christian home environment, and eventually be able to grow up in their forever home to fulfil their God-given potential.

Street-LIGHT

Street-LIGHT

Sex workers are among the most marginalised and discriminated against in society. Yet, many of these women in the sex industry are vulnerable to sexual abuse, health risks and physical assault. Because they are typically shunned and frowned upon, many are often afraid to come forward to seek help. Just as Jesus had compassion for the outcasts of society, we too, hope to reach out to them with the love of Christ by befriending them, providing practical and emotional support, conducting workshops and English classes, and so on. Our aim is to show them that they are of value and worth in God’s eyes.

Commitment: Twice a month (over a period of 4 months)

NEW Cancer Care Group

Cancer Care Group

According to statistics in Singapore, about 39 people are diagnosed with cancer every day, and 1 in 4 people may develop cancer in their lifetime. Thankfully, advancements in treatment and screening have led to early detection and timely treatment, thereby reducing cancer mortality rates. However, stress and anxiety for the patient and family can be overwhelming; many struggle to cope with emotionally, mentally and financially. Our Cancer Care Group hopes to journey with cancer patients and their caregivers; to offer practical and financial help to cancer patients who struggle with the cost of medical treatments and possibly, loss of income.
