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 (HMCF) in 1970’s 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 use 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 2003 and led our Church marching into another milestone. Pastor Chee Chang joined as the English pastor to look after our English congregation in October 2004. Apart from the Board Committee, LCAC started departmental committee in June 2006 to promote the church ministry. Pastor Chee left LCAC for another ministry in Taiwan, and Pastor Brad Chu led the English Ministry as from January 2008.
