History

By the grace of God,

April 1992: King Sihanouk acceded to the request of the Archbishop of Canterbury to allow the Anglican Church to minister throughout the Kingdom of Cambodia.

1993:
The Rev Dr John Benson was appointed to be the first Dean of Cambodia by the then-Bishop of Singapore, the Right Rev Dr Moses Tay.
The first Anglican Church, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ Our Peace (CCOP), was established in Phnom Penh, with English-speaking and Khmer-speaking congregations.
The Rev Donald Cormack was its first Vicar.

1996: The Rev Mok Wai Mung and his late wife Mee Hwa succeeded Rev Cormack.
New Khmer-speaking outreaches and church plants, mostly in the rural countryside, were pioneered.

1999: The Rev Chai Lip Vui started the Chinese-speaking Church of the Good Shepherd to reach out to ethnic Chinese Cambodians in Phnom Penh.

2000: Deaconess Bessie Lee of St Andrew’s Cathedral pioneered Project Khmer Hope (PKH), a training centre in Kampong Speu Province, to equip young Cambodians with skills in hospitality and provide healthcare to the rural community.
PKH has since diversified into Industrial Skills Training.
In 2013, PKH launched another training centre in the remote Aoral district.

July 2007: The Rev Tit Hieng, a Cambodian convert and ordained clergyman, was appointed by then-Archbishop John Chew, as the Vicar of CCOP and Chairman of the newly formed Anglican Church of Cambodia Provisional Council. This marked a significant formative step towards the formation of the future Diocese of Cambodia.

Present: The Anglican Church of Cambodia (ACC) has grown into a communion of 10 Anglican congregations and 9 preaching points in Phnom Penh and five rural provinces, worshipping Jesus in Khmer, English and Chinese.
