We are two congregations, English and Cantonese, working together as one church to bless the community of Whitehorn and beyond in Jesus' name.
Our vision is pretty simple: we desire to be a church through whom God blesses all peoples in Jesus' name. To fulfill that vision we worship God together, praising Father, Son, and Holy Spirit for our salvation; we teach the Christian faith through Bible studies, Sunday School, and as we model Christian character from one generation to the next; and we actively seek to bless our community through witness and acts of service.
WHAT WE DO
We worship, we learn, and we bless in Jesus' name. Whether children, young adults, or older, we offer activities and programmes to all that strengthen our faith and community. CCBC MISSION
Mostly we're young and Chinese, but we're becoming quite a diverse community, with friends from all over the world, including the Philippines, Congo, United States and Ukraine. We desire our church to reflect the socio-economic diversity of the community of Whitehorn in which we're located.
