    Across the street and up an escalator from the HSBC building sits St. John's Cathedral with its unique cane backed pews.

    Very beautiful catholic church located just to the other side of the history museum. There is a very nice Christian bookstore just to the right of the church.

    The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is a Grade I Historical Building in Hong Kong, located along Caine Road in the Mid-Levels. This late 19th-century Roman Catholic cathedral is a fine example of Gothic Revival architecture and one of the interesting stops along the Central & Western Heritage Trail (Section C). Opening hours are 7am to 7pm daily, the public entrance being at the back at the cathedral.

    The present cathedral was constructed between 1883-1889 and includes numerous Gothic Revival features including a Latin cross layout, narrow and tall nave, columns supporting arched vaults, stained glass windows, a centre hanging crucifix and small chapels behind the main alter. The exterior is appealing but it is the interior that is large, quiet, very peaceful and just makes one feel for a few moments that they have escaped the chaotic streets of Hong Kong and been transported to the calm of an old cathedral somewhere in England or northern Europe.

    The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is very near to the western end of the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens and can be combined with a visit there. Alternatively, if you are interested in seeing more historic buildings around Central, refer to the heritage trail mentioned above on the Hong Kong Antiquities and Monuments Office website for more information about others nearby.

    This small church in Tsim Sha Tsui marks the English root of colonial Hong Kong. St Andrew's Church is one of the earliest structures in the area and still the centre of Hong Kong's religious life. Its serenity also marks a stark contrast with the busy Nathan Road.

    There’s a wedding on the day we visited, so we are unable to go inside. Seldom see this type of architecture in Hong Kong.

    Compared to the Catholic churches in Europe, this church’s interior is quite sparse. The church was consecrated in 1961 and was named after the Blessed Mother. It is located on the upper level of the building with church offices and gathering places on the lower level. Nevertheless, it is beautiful in its simplicity.

    (Full disclosure, I work for this church. That said, here's an honest review.)

    The Vine Church is a large, vibrant, international, English speaking church in the heart of Hong Kong. It is non-denominational, Evangelical, and meets in a converted movie cinema. The Vine has a great facility that caters to all ages, and walks of life.

    The worship at the Vine is contemporary, along the lines of Hillsong, Bethel, Passion, etc. Senior Ps Andrew Gardener is a dynamic speaker. They have good kids facilities, and their ground floor is a franchised cafe.

    You can get a feel for our speaking and services by checking out our vimeo page: https://vimeo.com/thevinechurch

    If you're in town for a weekend and would like to visit a church, we invite one and all to come on down. As of this writing, service times are 9:15, 11:30, and 4pm. Check out our website for more details: http://www.thevine.org.hk

    Feel free to get in touch with me if you want more info!

    The Labyrinth sacred walking space is outside St. John's Cathedral. This is a circular path with twists and turns that you can talk in route to the labyrinth centre, representing closeness with God. It is a medieval tradition and concept and something interesting to see as part of your visit to the cathedral.

    Along Hollywood Road is a small church called St. Matthew's, just across the street from the Hollywood Road Park. Unfortunately, Hong Kong doesn't have many Christian-based church attractions, like those commonly found in European cities and St. Matthew's is no exception to this rule. This is a functional church serving the local community and not really a point of interest for visitation.

    Services are in Cantonese as is the information available for the Sunday church services on the sign outside the church and the online website for this church. Of note, St. Matthew's also hosts nursery and kindergarten services during the week.

    In this area of Hong Kong there are many interesting attractions that you can see. A decent city park just across the street from St. Matthew's, called the Hollywood Road Park is worth a few moments of your time. Also, Man Mo Temple is just up Hollywood Road as well as the antique-laden "Cat Steet", just five minutes walk. In the opposite direction you can begin to locate some of Hong Kong's older, traditional street markets. These are likely to be more interesting attractions to find in the Sheung Wan area.

    The Hop Yat Church is located at the at the Caine Road-Bonham Road junction in the Mid-Levels and is a rare example of Neo-Gothic architecture in Hong Kong. This is a Grade II historical building and one of the various historic sites that you can see along the Sheung Wan Heritage Walk - Section B.

    Historically, the Hop Yat Church was born from the London Mission Society in order to create an indigenous church in Hong Kong which would lead a unification of the various churches across China. That movement and organisation is called The Church of Christ in China. The London Missionary Society provided the grounds here at the Bonham Road junction and the church to be constructed in 1926.

    Mass is held at the church on Sundays. However, the building is not open for general public visitations. Yet, you can still enjoy the Neo-Gothic architecture which is on full display as you approach along Caine Road. The facade features a centre tower with mounted clock, window arches and tracery along with a cream coloured exterior with red-brick bands. On the side, you are make out the buttresses and see more of the arched windows and tracery.

    For more specifics about the Hop Yat Church, you can visit the The Hong Kong Council of the Church of Christ in China Council website. Visit the Antiquities and Monuments Office website if you are looking for more information regarding the other historic places on the Sheung Wan Heritage Trail.

    St. Paul's Church is located on Glenealy just south of the Fringe Club and the LKF district.

    This is an early 20th-century church with several architectural influences ranging from the neo-gothic spire and tower at the front to the Dutch style gable at the back. The building is cream coloured with light blue trim and roof.

    The facade of the church is a bit difficult to see as a later period building was constructed just few meters in front of it. However, you can make a side view of the church front from across Glenealy Road.

    St. Paul's is an active Anglican Church with regular services. Check their website for details. It also functions as a local kindergarten as well.
