Chinese church/ Fellowship Overview

Vila Chinese Christian Fellowship (VCCF) was established with the help of the short-term mission (STM) team sent by CCMA (Chinese Christian Mission Australia) in 2001. A missionary couple was sent by CCMA in the mid-2010 to look after the VCCF. At that time, there were only 10 people and they rented a unit for gatherings. Then, Rev Herbert Wong & his wife, Esther, came as successors in May, 2003. The children and youth ministry were started and the congregation grows to more than 40 people. The gatherings were bilingual using Cantonese and Mandarin. The first evangelical“Teenagers camp” was held with the help of the STM team at Christmas 2004. Rev Herbert Wong finished the 3 year term mission and left Vila by the end of 2006. Vila Chinese Christian Church (VCCC) was established & was led by lay leaders for 5 years. Missionaries couple Sam & Jane arrived in Feb 2011 & developed ministries of medical team & construction laborers from China. Church moved twice to accommodate more people. They left after their 3.5 year term mission in July 2014.
