Mariners’ ministry in Hong Hong

I admit to being fascinated with Christian churches in unlikely places, in unusual formats, and under unconventional circumstances. Little wonder that transport chaplaincies appeal. In Hong Kong, four Protestant and Catholic ministry share space with a mariner’s club, which also offers accomodation, recreation, dining, and other resources. A room, dinner, a drink, a quick game of pool, and Mass: how can it get better?

The club in Hong Kong has two sites, each with its own chapel shared between the English, Danish, and German state churches and the Catholic Church’s maritime apostolate.

I partiuclarly like the good use of space in a city that can hardly support a little stone church with a steeple and cemetary.
