WELCOME TO CHRIST CHURCH!!

Here are 2 photos of Christ Church, a Tamil speaking parish, where I'm serving as Vicar. If God wills I will be here for about 2 years. And then return to Bolivia.

Christ Church is probably one of the very few, it could even be the only, Tamil speaking congregation which has a high proportion of middle class and professional Tamils.

The first Sunday service, a traditional eucharist is at 8 am; a small punjabi congregation meets later at 10.45; an english speaking service is conducted at 5pm and an outreach to Tamil workers culminates in a 7.30 pm prayer and praise.

The usual midweek meetings and activities coupled with the church's kindergarten keep the place humming.

There is much to be done in the parish. I have a busy schedule and only God's grace keeps me afloat!!

Hi pastor, I'm your neighbour from EAST. :) By the way, I found it a curious fact that the church secretary at Christ Church who has been working there for the past 14 years is not yet a Christian. Hopefully, while you are there, you will have an opportunity to witness to her. - Ee Yuing

Hi Ee Yuing,

I feel that God knows his timing and everything happens for a purpose..
So, Let's wait upon our Lord, as He knows best, and everything will happen in accordance to his time..
