Matthew 22:37-40 “Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’  The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments”

“NCCs are where ordinary baptised Catholics respond to Christ’s command to love God and neighbour. Catholic families living in a certain area come together in an NCC as a social network of faith; they are a community of disciples that tries to bring about the Kingdom of God in that particular place.” by Archbishop Nicholas Chia (The Catholic News – May 8, 2011, Vol 61, No9)

The Neighbourhood Christian Community (NCC) is the foundation of the universal Catholic Church and the new way of being Church. It is not a church organisation, ministry or interest group. It is a small group of Catholics, living in the same neighbourhood, coming together as a community to live and share their faith with one another through prayer, worship, service, fellowship and mission.

There are currently 10 NCC zones in St Anne’s Church (SAC), and each zone is organised independently by its zone leader. If you are a Catholic and live in the vicinity of Sengkang (see parish boundary map above) “you are automatically a member of it – even if you do not attend any of its meetings.” by Archbishop Nicholas Chia (The Catholic News – August 16, 2009, Vol 59, No17)

We do not impose any physical boundary for each zone, in order for you to join one that works best for you. Each zone has its own passion and activities to share life and contemplating the Word of God together; you can only belong to one zone, so join one that inspires you the most. The event or meeting is conducted at least once a month, in order to nurture an effective community. The following are short descriptions for each of our zones, and the contact details are given for you to start a NCC faith journey with us. If you have further questions about NCCs or their activities, please email to sac.nccchairman@catholic.org.sg
