Dear family in Christ
St John’s Chapel family welcomes Rev King Chiew Kwang and his family warmly into our church community. Pastor Chiew Kwang is married to Sor Lay, a school teacher, and they have three wonderful children. His family of origin is located at Kuching, where his mother and eight siblings currently reside.
After his professional training and work as a land surveyor, the Lord called pastor Chiew Kwang to full-time ministry in 1989. He received his theological education both in Sarawak and also at Trinity Theological College, Singapore. Upon graduation, he started ministry at All Saints Church Chinese Congregation (1996-1999) where he served at young adults ministry, Mainland Chinese Ministry and chaplaincy ministry at Anglican High School. Subsequently, he was posted to Church of the Good Shepherd Chinese Congregation (2000-2004) where he served at the youth ministry, bilingual service and community outreach.
Rev King was made a deacon in 2004 and ordained as a priest in 2005. He was posted to Marine Parade Christian Centre as Priest-in-charge of the Mandarin Congregation (2005-2009). Subsequently, he was posted to Anglican Care Centre (at Hougang and at Yishun) to pioneer and grow the mental health chaplaincy (2010-2020) and also served as honorary priest at Yishun Christian Church. The mental health ministry has helped him develop his strengths in pulpit preaching, Christian education, counselling, contemplative spirituality and theological reflection.
Pas Chiew Kwang enjoys many personal hobbies, such as reading, movies & documentaries, doing house chores, appreciating nature, arts, music & dance performances and cross-cultural immersion. I ask for your prayers for God’s grace and wisdom for Pas Chiew Kwang and his family in this period of adjustment and for his focal ministry overseeing the Mandarin, Hokkien and Cantonese congregations.
