The Chaplaincy team looks into the spiritual and character aspects of development of the children in our schools and learning institutions. Rev Edwin Tan is the Chaplain of St Andrew’s Junior School (SAJS), St Andrew’s House Day Boarders Centre (SAHDBC), Ascension Kindergarten and Ascension Kindercare. He is assisted by Mr Lim Chong Wei.
Together with lay members of the Church of the Ascension (COA), the team provides spiritual support to the students and staff of these institutions. We assist the principals, teachers and BB Officers in character building and imbibing strong Christian values in our young children through bible study, prayer, worship and discipleship.
We help lead morning devotions and assemblies, conduct the recess time "Saints Haven" at SAJS, and host many other programmes and activities such as SAV Praying Parents, HOPE Boyz Programme, PSLE Prayer Chains, P6 Camp and Boys’ Brigade 7th Junior Company.
The Ascension Kindergarten and Ascension Kindercare were started by COA and are important components of the Ascension family. As such, the Chaplaincy team supports our principals in blessing our young children with God’s love and care, apart from providing high-quality early childhood education and childcare..
