History of Chapel of Christ the Redeemer

Humble Beginnings…

1979 - Golden Harvest Centre
St Andrew’s Cathedral (SAC) was the mother church of Golden Harvest Centre (GHC). In 1979, SAC gave a challenge to start an outreach work in the then Bedok New Town. Hence, in 1980 two members from SAC and six members from GHC were sent out by SAC to form the outreach team of Bedok Extension Centre (BEC).
1980 - Bedok Extension Centre

BEC first gathered for worship service on 2 November 1980 at the office of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Phua (Blk 209 Bedok Central – above Kentucky Fried Chicken).

1981 - AVA Room at Anglican High School
In July 1981, the place of worship was shifted to the AVA room of the Anglican High School as the space in the office became too small.
1985 - Search Begins
In 1985, BEC began looking towards the newly built Tampines New Town as its mission field. The decision was also spurred on by the planned relocation of Saint Hilda’s Girl’s School from Ceylon Road to Tampines (It was changed to co-education schools; namely Saint Hilda’s Primary and Saint Hilda’s Secondary Schools), with the potential of BEC moving into the chapel and counselling centre that was being planned for the schools.
1986 - Extension Centre
In 1988, Saint Andrew’s Cathedral relinquished its over-sight of BEC that the latter became an extension centre of Saint Hilda’s Church (Vicar: Rev David Stitt). This was to achieve the smooth transition of BEC into Saint Hilda’s Schools compound, the latter then was under the chaplaincy of Saint Hilda’s Church.
1989 - A Full Parish Church

BEC then became officially known as the Chapel of Christ the Redeemer.

On 29 May 1989, CCR was granted the status of a parish church.
