Our church community is made up of three congregations that cater to three language groups: Cantonese, Mandarin, and English. As well, we have an adult Sunday School ministry that meets at 2:30pm on the second Sunday afternoon and a Children's Sunday School ministry that runs concurrently with the 1:00pm services at both locations.
We are involved in other ministries throughout the week. At present, some of our ministry involvements include:
- Campus ministries for Chinese students in universities
- Reaching out to support, encourage, and share the gospel to detainees at detention centres
- Visitation ministries
- Prayer Meetings and various Bible Studies to nurture spiritual formation
Additionally, we have fellowship groups for all three congregations that meet together to share, encourage each other, pray for one another, and learn about God. We have different groups to cater to people at all different stages of life, such as students, young professionals, adults, and families.
Please feel free to contact us if you want more information about our ministries.
London Chinese Alliance Church (LCAC) was founded in October 1990 with the full support from Canadian Chinese Alliance Church Association. It was first established as Hong Kong Christian Fellowship (HKCF) in 1970s by a group of students from Hong Kong.
In 1989, Rev Jonathan Kaan and Montreal Chinese Alliance Church sent Rev Thomas Chan to London to explore the opportunity of planting a Chinese Alliance Church in London. By God's grace, He led Rev Chan to HKCF and started his service there. Later, Canadian Chinese Alliance Church Association sent Rev John Wong to be the first pastor to LCAC and formally established on 7 October 1990. We had our worship and fellowship at Christian Alliance Centre, Waterloo, Central London.
In order to build a local church with strong support from local families, in October 1995, Rev Paul Ma and the Board of LCAC decided to move the worship place from Waterloo of Central London to Harrow. With the special permission from St John the Baptist Church - Greenhill, Harrow, we used Victoria Hall as our worship place from October 1995. Apart from forming a Board Committee, Rev Paul Ma helped LCAC registered as a charitable organisation.
Pastor Amos Chan came from Hong Kong to serve at our Church in April 1998. With God's grace, through 8 years of full support from Canada, LCAC finally became an independent church.
Rev Alvis Tan joined LCAC in February 2004 and began to develop various ministries, some of which include ministries toward students, families, restaurant workers, and detention centre detainees. In June 2006, departmental committees were established to promote church ministries. Under Rev Alvis' leadership, LCAC added two more congregations: an English-speaking congregation in October 2004, led by Pastor Chee Chang (October 2004 to November 2007) and Rev Brad Chu (January 2008 to present), and a Mandarin-speaking congregation in January 2015. Rev Alvis stepped down from LCAC in February 2015.
In August 2015, Rev Gus Fung came to the UK from Canada to lead LCAC as Senior Pastor toward its next season of growth.
Statement of Faith
- There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived by Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our great High Priest. He will come again to establish His Kingdom of righteousness and peace.
- The Holy Spirit is a divine Person, sent to indwell, guide, teach and empower the believer, and to convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment.
- The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of people. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.
- Humankind, originally created in the image and likeness of God, fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All people are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. The destiny of the impenitent and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment, but that of the believer is everlasting joy and bliss.
- Salvation has been provided only through Jesus Christ. Those who repent and believe in Him are united with Christ through the Holy Spirit and are thereby regenerated (born again), justified, sanctified and granted the gift of eternal life as adopted children of God.
- It is the will of God that in union with Christ each believer should be sanctified thoroughly thereby being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to God, receiving power for holy living and sacrificial and effective service toward the completion of Christ’s commission. This is accomplished through being filled with the Holy Spirit which is both a distinct event and progressive experience in the life of the believer.
- Provision is made in the redemptive work of the work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body. Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil as taught in the Scripture are privileges for the Church in this present age.
- The universal Church, of which Christ is the Head, consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, regenerated by the Holy Spirit, and commissioned by Christ to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the Gospel to all nations.
- The Local church, the visible expression of the universal Church, is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together to worship God, to observe the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, to pray, to be edified through the Word of God, to fellowship, and to testify in word and deed to the good news of salvation both locally and globally. The local church enters into relationship with other like-minded churches for accountability, encouragement and mission.
- There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life; for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment.
- The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal and visible. As the believer’s blessed hope, this vital truth is an incentive for holy living and sacrificial service toward the completion of Christ’s commission.
