The primary Anglican church in Cambodia is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ our Peace in Phnom Penh. This Missionary Parish comprises a Khmer congregation, an English congregation and three Chinese congregations. There is also a Chinese Outreach in the city, and a daughter congregation, which meets at Takhmau, to the south of Phnom Penh. Sunday schools and youth ministries are run in all these places. A number of Cambodians have come to Christ while working in Phnom Penh, and taken the Word home with them to their villages. As a result, the ministry has spread from Phnom Penh to four other major centres:

To the East: Svay Prahoot Village in Svay Rieng Province


A facility has been established here which is used both for worship and as an office and residence for the local pastor. Weekly worship and Sunday School are now held, and it is hoped that a youth group and some house groups in nearby villages will soon commence.

To the West: Kampong Speu Province


Work is underway in four different villages located within a 10km radius of this provincial town. The work has been growing especially amongst the children. Worship meetings are held every Sunday in one of the villages, and a site has been identified for a church building.

To the North: Ksaet Borei in Pursat Province


Permission has been granted from the authorities to work in three communes in Pursat, and Sunday services are now held weekly in a new worship facility. The work continues to grow and expand to other villages and to the district town, Liek.

To the South: Preh Kraom Village, Takeo Province


10-15 adults regularly attend Bible Study, and more than 100 children attend the children's ministry. Work here prioritises the raising up of committed Cambodian Christian leaders. To date, we have one ordained priest, five full-time workers and four Bible School trainees.??For further information on the history of the church in Cambodia, Rev Donald Cormack's remarkable book "Killing Fields, Living Fields" is highly recommended. It is published by OMF International and is available in a number of bookshops in Singapore.
