Matthew 22:37-40 “‘ You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” “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 and a new way of being the universal Catholic Church. It is not a church organisation, ministry or interest group. It is a small group of Catholics coming together as a community, to live and share their faith with one another in many aspects of spiritual life through Prayer, Word, Witness, Fellowship and Mission. There are currently 9 NCC small groups in St Anne’s Church (SAC), and each group is organised independently by its small group 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)

SAC NCC does not impose any physical boundary for each small group, so you could join one that works best for you. Each small group has its own passion and activities to share life and contemplating the Word of God together. The event or meeting is conducted at least twice a month, in order to nurture an effective community. You can only belong to one small group, so join one that inspires you to grow in faith with them regularly.
