20th Anniversary Congratulations 恭賀教省成立二十週年

HKSKH 20th Anniversary (Eng)_180329102301

Ming Hua congratulates HKSKH on the 20th anniversary of its establishment as a Province.

On Saturday October 6, the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui celebrates its 20th anniversary, the culmination of several months of events commemorating our Church’s establishment in 1998 as the 38th Province of the Anglican Communion.

Ming Hua congratulates The Most Revd Dr Paul Kwong, Archbishop of Hong Kong, The Right Revd Andrew Chan and The Right Revd Dr Timothy Kwok, as well as The Most Revd Dr Peter Kong-kit Kwong, Archbishop Emeritus, and Bishops Emeritus The Rt Revd Dr Thomas Soo and The Rt Revd Louis Tsui on this wonderful achievement and this tremendous witness to the Christian faith in our city.

More than that, everyone at Ming Hua – students, Faculty, and staff – would like to thank our whole Church for supporting the College, participating in lectures and classes, and being part of a wide and deep family of faithful learning. We are so proud to be an important part of the Province, contributing to the training of priests and the teaching of lay members of the Church.

Our Church’s mission, and our people’s thoughtful faith and practice, is a fine and continuing witness to Christianity in our part of China. We join with every priest, and every member of our Body of Christ, in humbly celebrating the opportunities we have all been given to join, and to lead, our Anglican Communion. Long may these celebrations be remembered, and longer still may our mission bring faith, hope and love to the many peoples of Hong Kong and Macau.

Professor Gareth Jones,

Principal of Ming Hua Theological College

Study Trip: Saint Paul’s Mission to Greece 下一站: 聖保羅希臘行蹤

Agrop1

Ming Hua’s next study trip will explore Saint Paul’s journey to Greece.

Saint Paul made two journeys that defined Christianity’s growth into a worldwide Church: Rome, the political heart of the empire; and Athens and Corinth, key intellectual centres. Greece was arguably the more important of the two.

Our study trip will provide a deep experience to help understand the key features of Paul’s mission, the complex religious and philosophical environment in which he found himself, and the relevant passages of The Acts of the Apostles and Letters to the Corinthians.

Through a series of visits to key sites, such as the Areopagus, Corinth, the markets and temples of Athens, including the Parthenon on the Acropolis, as well as lectures on site and in our hotel, and Bible studies, members of the trip will enjoy the best possible encounter with a world that changed Paul, and us, forever.
