Throughout the years, churches in the Diocese have been quietly and consistently carrying out social ministries, often with no acknowledgement or recognition.
Anglican Care started as an umbrella body which works to facilitate and address the needs of the various care ministries within the Anglican Diocese of West Malaysia.
In its initial stage, Bishop Lim Cheng Ean appointed Mr. Neil Rode to head an Interim Committee. Subsequently, in 2005, Mrs. Lydia Wong was appointed as the 1st Chairperson of Anglican Care. Since 2012, Ms. Annamaney Arumanayagam has been appointed as the Chairperson.
Although young as a Council (since 2005), Anglican Care’s oldest ministry is St. Nicholas Home in Penang which is more than 90 years old (founded in 1926)!
To express the LOVE, GRACE, MERCY and COMPASSION of our LORD JESUS CHRIST to the community at large through Social Care, Concern and Action. Our aim is to be the visible expression of God’s love to the community.
