The Filipino fellowship has come a long way since its inception in 2006. Due to the growing number of Filipinos attending CHC, one of the zone supervisors, Jimmy Sng, decided to assemble a dedicated cell group for them.

Although informal gatherings were being held since 2005 for occasions like Christmas, it was only in March 2006 when the first Filipino cell group was officially formed. Under the leadership of Hansen Sy and his wife Judy, this group has escalated from a handful of 10 individuals to the now 110-strong membership. Filipino cell groups gather several times a week in Jurong East, Tampines, Sengkang and Bishan, making room for more fellow Filipinos to join in. Majority of the members are Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) and it is through this fellowship that they have found a home away from home.
