Parish & Ward Church of St. Botolph without Bishopsgate

Rector on Church work in Hong Kong

The Rector of St Botolph's visited Hong Kong on the business of the Church
October 28th to November 1st 2014. He accompanied The Rt Revd John
McDowell, the Bishop of Clogher and helped develop a new relationship for
the Bishop with the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui. A number of important Church
meetings were held with The Archbishop of Hong Kong, the Bishop of West
Kowloon, the Dean of St John's Cathedral, the Chief Justice of Hong Kong,
and the British Consul General. Some time was also spent touring the site
of 'Occupy Central' in Admiralty and Mon Kok. The Rector is no stranger to
the territory and hopes to welcome a delegation of Hong Kong Christians to
St Botolph's in the summer of 2015. The photos below give a flavour of the
trip.
