Our Sunday Service is at 10am each week. It's a service of Holy Communion, when we receive bread and wine, following Jesus' command 'Dot this in remembrance of me'. We sing hymns with either organ or piano accompaniment. Anyone who is baptised is welcome to receive Communion.

Each week 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.
