Support in living authentic Christian lives
Neighbourhood Christian Communities (NCC) and Small Christian Communities (SCC)
We are neighbours gathered to break the Word of God together so as to support each other in our struggles to be faithful to the gospel and to encourage one another to serve the needs of others. We meet regularly, at least once a month in our homes, to break the Word. We also attend relevant talks, parish-wide events, and events involving the other NCCs.
Mothers’ Prayer Groups and Parents Prayer Group
Something special always happens when mothers come together with the Lord!
In SFX, there are five Mothers’ Prayer Groups and a Parents Prayer Group who gather once a week to pray for our children and our community.
It all started in 2004 with the first group when one of the Moms brought a set of prayers back from the U.K., where the first MPG had started.
By the grace of God, we have grown over the years and have witnessed the power of prayer as a community of mothers who support each other through prayer ... In each group, there are moms of all ages; from new moms to new grandmas. All the same, we pray together and continue to support each other on our chat groups through sickness, miscarriages, depression, struggles as well as victories with our children and spouses. We are also known to be more effective than Google!
"I've learnt so much from my sisters in MPG with older children. They have been role models I look up to and given me the confidence to bring up my children in a strong Catholic community." Jeanne Tan, 42
"A bonded sisterhood where mothers find emotional support developing into relationships as trusted confidants while connecting with God, others & self." Janet Tan, 50+
"God has shown me lots of love and compassion through my sisters in MPG. I feel very blessed and thankful!"
Wendy Sim, 46
"Most of all let love guide your life." Col 3:14
