This is Hong Kong's oldest Christian institution. It is rather unremarkable in outlook. The Sunday mass attracts a large crowd.

I found St John’s cathedral just walking around downtown Hong Kong. I saw the entrance to the church yard and started to explore. As an Anglican, I’m very glad I did. I’m also very relieved to see freedom of religion in Hong Kong, even since...More

This 170 years old Anglican church still sits prominently despite it being dwarfed by the steel and glass skyscrapers surrounding it. It still retains the charm of a church built in the Neoclassicism period with its Gothic influences. Serene within, reflecting peace and quiet, this...More

While at the Peak Tram station, walked by the church and decided to stop in for visit. It is a nice simple church/cathedral and appears very historic. I like the yellow color the church gives it a sub-tropical feel.

Visitors to Hong Kong must visit this spot as it is a fine example of British Colonial Architecture, very well maintained. A quiet place for prayer andd self reflection. A lot of history to observe

St John's Anglican Cathedral is situated in the finance district of HK. It is an attractive, well-maintained building. If you go to sit inside it has an air of solemnity. It is worth calling in if passing the area.

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
