Church Without Walls

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

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.

My Fellow Workers

My Fellow Workers

Low wage migrant workers in our midst are far from their homes and families. They work long hours and often, under tough conditions. You would find that although they live in communities, many of them actually feel alone and homesick.

Prison Care

Prison Care

Inmates who have completed their prison term sometimes experience difficulty adjusting back to life in society. Many often feel out of place and struggle to get employed or hold down a job. As such, we hope to help and support ex-offenders re-integrate into the community, stay on the right path and rebuild their lives. By providing practical, social and emotional support through befriending, finding employment, and a little financial aid, we want to journey with them to reach financial independence and be able to take care of their family.

Elderly

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.

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.

It has become increasingly difficult for the youth of today to navigate adolescence, identity, academics and society’s expectations.

Our volunteer tutors consist of undergrads and experienced tutors who are committed to helping students that need the additional academic support.

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.

City H❤️mes

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.

20 VOLUNTEERS (age 21 and above) FULL
Commitment: Twice a month

  • To be trained as befrienders to foster children

Note:
Volunteers and foster families need to attend the Foster Care Awareness Workshop held on 29 Apr (Fri), 8pm via Zoom.

City Outlook

City Outlook

A home is where one should feel comfortable and secure. However, many low income and single parent families struggle to have a conducive home environment to rest and for the children to study. Sometimes, all it takes is having the proper furniture to make all the difference. Being in a positive environment can lead to having a positive outlook in life. Through City Outlook, we hope to create a warm and welcoming, yet functionable home environment for needy families.

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.

Our outreach also involves working with young ex-offenders, helping them integrate back to society.
