The Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Archives was established in January 2010. Our website is designed to introduce you to our archival holdings and present materials and photographs which are relevant to the history of our church.

Archbishop Paul Kwong has observed,

  • Our church archives have been set up to help us learn from the past as we look to the future. As Anglicans, together in the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui, we value tradition, and this includes our own tradition in Hong Kong, Macau and greater China. We hope that church members and scholars from home and abroad will make use of our archival holdings to better understand our history and experience.

We hope this website will be useful for church members and individual scholars, from Hong Kong, mainland China and around the world, and provide a better understanding of life and mission.

The Diocese of Victoria was established by Queen Victoria, in the twelfth year of her reign (1849) by Royal Letters Patent. “And we do ordain make constitute and declare the said City and all the Territory comprised in our said Island of Hong Kong and Its Dependencies to be the Diocese of the Bishop of Victoria hereinafter named and of his Successors Bishops of Victoria and to be called in all time the Diocese of Victoria.” The Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui is the successor body to the Diocese of Victoria, formed 169 years ago today. The Letters Patent may be said to be our diocesan “birth certificate”.
