Reverend Woo Lim Ang
Lead Pastor & Blackburn English Pastor
Rev Woo Lim was one of the first members of ECCI. Born into a pastor’s family, he gained good insight into the life of a pastor as he saw his father sacrificially laboured for Christ. Since childhood, he has always had a keen interest in God’s work in the church.
God's initial calling for him came by way of a Word of Wisdom (Rhema) in 1984. He worked as a biomedical engineer in the Department of Paediatrics at Monash University, the Australian Army and the Australian Commonwealth Department of Health. He later worked in the financial sector principally in the areas of financial analysis and equities. While being engaged in secular employment, he pursued part-time theological studies at the Presbyterian Theological College, Box Hill North - thus, gaining his BTh and Dip Theol.
God’s calling on him became more pronounced in mid-2006 and he made himself available for formal ministry. ECCI appointed him as a non-stipendiary pastor in late 2006. He left his secular employment in early 2007. His interests are in pastoral care and preaching of God’s Word. Rev Ang is married to Cheer Ring and they are blessed with a daughter, a son and a daughter-in-law who are also keenly interested in God’s work.
Since his appointment in 1986, Rev Woo York has been a pastor of the English ministry of ECCI. Having stepped down as lead pastor in 2021, he is now focusing his ministry on living by the word of God through faith in action, in particular, ministering to those in need. His wife, Hai Leng, serves in the women’s ministry, and they are both keenly involved in missions and evangelism. They have two children, Wesley and Trudy.
