Who We Are

Our Story

My Saviour's Church was started in 1981 as a fellowship with about 10 people in the Church Of Our Saviour (COOS) by Rev. Derek Hong.

In 1981 as the fellowship grew, the late Rev. M.K. Bennett who had joined as a pastoral staff in COOS was approached to lead the Tamil congregation. In 1991 when the Tamil Congregation had received parish status, Rev. M.K. Bennett was then inducted as the first vicar of this congregation which was renamed as My Saviour's Church (MSC). By God's grace as the church grew over the years, ministries in MSC expanded, forming the children, dancing, drama, media, music ministries to name a few. MSC's outreaches expanded to include Malaysia, Sri Lanka and India. As a result of these outreaches MSC planted churches in India, five of which are now MSC extensions.

In 1993 MSC felt that it needed a bigger sanctuary with more rooms for its expanding ministries. With the help of the Diocese of Singapore, churches, organisations, individuals and MSC members, funds were raised for a new building. During the redevelopment of MSC, the vicar of St John's St Margaret's Church (SJSM), Rt. Rev. Rennis Ponniah graciously allowed MSC to use SJSM premises for its weekly services, while Archdeacon Siow Chai Pin graciously allowed MSC to use the Church of the Good Shepherd for mid-week meetings and other activities. MSC conducted its weekly services in SJSM for seven years while waiting for the redevelopment of the new building to be completed. Finally in 29 August 2009 when the redevelopment of the building was completed, MSC held its first service in its present building. MSC continues to do the work of the Lord in Singapore and in its five branch churches in India as His Spirit leads the church. It is now praying and working towards building a 500 strong Tamil congregation.
