'Every Sunday service is an adventure taking us into the presence of the unseen God who both comforts and challenges' - Will 

Our Sunday Service is at 10am each week. It's a fairly traditional Anglican service of Holy Communion, or Holy Eucharist. We say prayers together, sing hymns together, hear bible readings and a sermon, and receive bread and wine, following Jesus' command 'Do this in remembrance of me'. Everyone is welcome, you don't need to be a member. Anyone who is baptised is welcome to receive Communion.

Each Sunday during school terms we have Sunday School for children age 3-11, with a variety of bible stories, songs and activities for children. 

We are delighted that four times a year our morning service is recorded and broadcast on RTHK4, reaching more than 20,000 listeners in Hong Kong and mainland China. Dates in 2024 include February 4th and April 14th.
