Parish of Christ Church, the first Anglican Indian Church in Singapore, started from the Tamil Congregation of St Peter’s Church at Stamford Road in 1941.
Under the leadership of the late Revd Canon Samuel Baboo, a private school was set up in 1952 to help students who were affected by World War 2. This private school eventually became Christ Church Secondary School.
Today, Parish of Christ Church is a Tamil parish with Punjabi, English and Malayalam Services.
