Union Church Hong Kong is a friendly, English-speaking and interdenominational church in Hong Kong with a vision to build a home in Christ to seek, love and serve God and our neighbours. We look back and embrace our calling as a missional church 175+ years ago, while reaching out today to a city in need of hope through faith in Jesus. Hong Kong and Union Church are in an exciting season. We have moved into larger, new premises on Kennedy Road on Hong Kong Island recently. Possibilities abound - new ministries, expanding services to Hong Kong and the world, opportunities for all to pursue God-inspired passions for His Kingdom.
Union Church is unique in that it offers both contemporary and traditional worship services.
Our Director of Contemporary Worship will discover passionate volunteer worship teams with whom to collaborate to plan and deliver contemporary worship during the 11:15 Sunday service and other worship events eg Worship Jam, rehearsals and special productions.
