丘がちで西洋人が多い香港の六本木みたいな場所、蘭渓坊にある教会です。近くには警察署など古い建物がいくつか残っておりこの教会もイギリス統治時代の建物です。ミサの時などしか入れないようですが、外観の白と赤を基調とした建物は非常に優美な建物という印象でした。 more »It is a church located in places like the Roppongi Hills tend to be Westerners, Hong Kong S.A.R., Lan-Fong.

Established in 1926, Hop Yat Church (合一堂) was very closely associated with the Chinese Self-administering Society (華人自理會), a Chinese religious group separated from the London Missionary Society. The Church was the first indigenous church ever built and funded by the local Christian church in Hong Kong. The predecessor of Hop Yat Church is Daoji Mission House (道濟會堂) which was established in 1888 by the London Missionary Society. The stone plaque (1888) from the old Daoji Mission House, inscribed with Chinese characters 道濟會堂, is set into the foundations of today’s Hop Yat Church. The Hop Yat Church is associated with certain historic figures. One of the most important members of the Hop Yat Church was Mrs. Ng Hoh Siu-ling, daughter of Rev. Hoh Fuk Tong (何福堂). Evidently, when Dr. Sun Yat-sen (孫逸仙 / 孫中山) was studying at the College of Medicine, the Daoji Mission House was the place where he always went for religious gatherings. Hop Yat Church was built in the Neo-Gothic style of architecture with very distinctive polychromatic treatment of red banded brickwork and mouldings set off by the cream coloured stuccoed walls. Gothic features include flying buttresses, pointed windows and curvilinear tracery. The clock tower was a local landmark for many years. This kind of architecture is quite rare in Hong Kong and the church therefore has significant built heritage value.
An old church.
