Military Christian Fellowship


In January 1970, a group of Christian Officers led by LTC (Ret) Rev Patrick Tan Kang Ping gathered and founded a Christian fellowship (Fellowship of Christian Serviceman or FCS) within the Singapore Armed Forces.

In the following two years, attempts were made to formalise the group but these were not successful. Upon knowing this situation, FES decided to adopt it because National Service is an inevitable fact in the lives of male students: they either finish NS before joining a tertiary institution, or be enlisted after their Polytechnic education. FCS became the Armed Forces Committee (AFC) of FES on 8 July 1972, and thus became affiliated to FES.

In 1983, the AFC was renamed Military Christian Fellowship (MCF).
