Neighbourhood Christian Communities
Catholic families living in particular residential areas of the Parish come together to form NCCs. As a social network of faith, they are a community of disciples that tries to bring about the Kingdom of God in their neighbourhoods.

In Catholic teaching, community is indispensable for Christian discipleship. Members of an NCC share a close relationship and understand their primary vocation as lay Christians to respond to God in their daily lives, becoming leaven that transforms the world. Members of a NCC live out their Eucharistic faith, sharing life and contemplating the Word of God together.

The NCCs of SVDP support and actively participate in activities organised by the Church of SVDP such as Father’s Day soccer, Family Bowling, Feast Day Novena, Praying the Rosary at Parish level during the months of May and October, etc. Different NCCs get together and take turns to run Canteen on Sundays.

At the neighbourhood level, NCCs participate in both spiritual as well as social activities. Some spiritual activities are community prayers, Bible sharing, retreats, home Mass, visit to the sick, service to the poor, and prayers and support for bereaved families. Social activities common among SVDP NCCs include educational and day tours, and neighbourhood parties.

We recognise and admit different kinds of people bearing different gifts from God in our NCCs. All are welcome to join an existing NCC in your neighbourhood or to start a new NCC if your neighbourhood does not have a NCC.
