Light of Christ Church Woodlands provides pastoral support and care to Christ Church Secondary School.  The chaplaincy team, headed by Reverend William Tham, is situated at the school’s Drop-in Centre and comprises of 4 pastoral / chaplaincy staff.  The chaplaincy team seeks to provide pastoral care and ministry to students, teachers, school leaders and parents of all faiths and also those with none.

We are actively involved in the school’s life.  Some shared ministries include Morning Reflection, Chapel Service, Prayer Groups, Christian Fellowship, the Boys’ Brigade 11 th Coy and Girls’ Brigade 18 th  Coy.  During Covid, the Drop-in Centre is closed during school operational hours for the protection of CHRians.  However, students who require a place for rest, games, hearty conversations with chaplaincy team or expressions via musical instruments and music clinics could contact the chaplaincy team or Church Office for more information.

Students who are interested to explore the Christian faith and to know more about the parish are invited to celebrate God’s Love with us at our Saturday 2pm LIT Youth Service at the Drop- in Centre.
