 Partner overview

 

 

The CMCHK is a fellowship of three congregations. The conference dates back to mission efforts by several North American agencies to work with education, social services and church planting in the 1960s and 70s. The first congregation began meeting in February of 1976, known as the Lok Fu Mennonite Church. Later, two other churches formed. Homantin Mennonite Church began in 1986, and is now known as Grace. Hope Mennonite Church was established in June of 1989. These three congregations came together in 1991 to form the Conference of Mennonite Churches in Hong Kong. The total membership of these congregations is around 120. Mission Network provides support for the ministry outreach to domestic helpers on Cheung Chau Island (Cheung Chau Christian Center). Mennonite churches in the Philippines and Indonesia each send one mission worker for the ministries of the Christian center. Following MCC relief work in Hong Kong in the 1950s, Eastern Mennonite Board of Missions and Charities (now Eastern Mennonite Missions) sent workers in 1966. A reading room/library in the Lok Fu Estates was one of the first ministries, which operated from 1968-1989. Worship services began in Kowloon City in 1976 and moved to the Lok Fu Center, where the first church was planted. In 1980, the Commission on Overseas Mission of the General Conference Mennonite Church joined the Eastern Mennonite Board in sending new mission workers. The Hong Kong Mennonite Centre property was purchased in 1983, and serves as the meeting place for the Grace church. The Hope church began in 1989, and the Lok Fu church became Agape when it moved to a new location. The conference was registered with the government in 1991.
