Union Church

Union Church is a friendly, English speaking, inter-denominational church, founded in 1844 by the Reverend James Legge, a Scottish member of the London Missionary Society. An active figure in Hong Kong society, James Legge founded the very first government school (now called Queen's College).

Union Church was first called Union Chapel and was situated on Hollywood Road. In 1866, the church moved to Staunton Street and, in 1890, to the Kennedy Road site.

We are now rebuilding our Kennedy Road site to house the future Union Church building. During this time, we are worshipping at 18/F Dah Sing Financial Centre in Wan Chai. You are welcome to join us for in-person or online worship. 

Our mission is "making mature followers in all nations for Jesus Christ through our united lifestyle, witness and mission".

 

We are also delighted our kit partners Tsunami Sports are supporting this event.
