St John's Cathedral

About St John's

This beautiful Cathedral, built in the shape of a cross, is in the Central district of Hong Kong Island on Garden Road, just down the hill from the Peak Tram station. We are open daily for quiet prayer and meditation.

Visitors and tourists are always welcome at any of our services. If you are new to Hong Kong or St. John's, do make yourself known at the Welcome Table in the Porch after Sunday morning service where you can find someone who can give you information about our life and ministry here.

The Cathedral Office is open 9:00am to 5:00pm on weekdays, 9:00am to 12 noon at the weekend.

These pages welcome you to our community and detail its activities. We are glad to have you with us and should you wish to know more please do not hesitate to contact us directly.
