Bintulu has been described as one
of the fastest growing towns in
Anglican Church in Bintulu experienced a significant
growth from the late 1980s, which led to the construction of a new church
building in 1995. Our average Sunday attendance now is about 500 with an
average number of 390 communicants. Most of the members are between the ages of
15 and 50. Services are conducted in three languages: English, Iban and Bahasa
The organisations in the Parish:-
1. PCC Members
2. Bible Study Group
3. Healing and Caring Ministry Group

One of our main concerns as a church at the moment is the negative thing that progress and development bring to the people in Bintulu: e.g. increased family crisis, stresses at work, and alcoholism that are already affecting some of our members. Our other concern is Anglican families who come from long houses to live and work in scattered places (e.g. timber-camps and plantations) where there are no Anglican chapels nearby. Some of the outstation centres are also shrinking because many people are migrating to urban areas in search of work.
The church also wants to be involved in the care of others outside the parish. We have set up a Relief Fund out of which we give small donations to needy cases. We feel that God has blessed this town abundantly with natural resources that made Bintulu what it is now. We are blessed with good and generous people. We want to make this church an avenue whereby God can bless more people in and outside Bintulu.
