Believing that the Bible is the standard for working and living, the Public Service Christian Fellowship (PSCF) promotes Bible study, prayer and
Christian fellowship directed towards learning and applying Christian principles in all areas of the public service. The fellowship is open to people
from all Christian denominations who seek to find and make Jesus Christ Lord of their lives. As Christ's ambassadors we aspire to encourage brothers
and sisters in the Lord Jesus Christ who work in the public service to walk in the light and to reach out to others.
The PSCF has been in existence since 1979. Currently there are individual groups holding weekly, bi-weekly or monthly meetings at lunch time in
many government departments and agencies (although during the pandemic this activity has moved online).
Each group has one main focus and that is to love the Lord Jesus Christ and, through His love, to bring
encouragement and spiritual growth to fellow Christians. The meetings also provide an outreach to those who do not know His love. Believing that God
hears and answers prayer, PSCF members hold up their government, departments and co-workers in prayer, and seek God's guidance in their individual lives
so they will glorify Him in their daily tasks.
In May 1999 A paper on the early history of the PSCF was presented by Don Page, Vice-President of Academic Affairs at Trinity Western University, at a conference
at Queen's University, Kingston Ontario. Don was one of the co-founders of the PSCF. The paper (in english), entitled "From Private to Public Religion: The History
of the Public Service Christian Fellowship" is presented here.
In 2014 Ray Robinson, the other co-founder of the PSCF, wrote a memoir entitled "A Diplomat in Environmentalist's Clothing". Chapter 43 of this memoir,
"Public, and Christian, Servants" gives Ray's account of the founding of the PSCF. With Ray's permission that chapter is presented
