As the rainstorm faded, I went on to St. Andrea's Hall, which I missed. St Andrea Hall is also on Nathan Road, not far from Kowloon Mosque, Kowloon Park and Hong Kong Comic Starlight Avenue. The church gate looks very old. This church is the oldest church in Kowloon District. The bottom is the center of Christ. The church is located on the hillside, so it has to walk a long step. St Andrey's Hall is a Latin cross-shaped red brick Gothic building with beautiful colored glass roofs and bell towers. The church offers worship in English and Mandarin, both on Sundays. We arrived on Sunday afternoon, just in time for Mandarin worship, and the church was full of Christians. With the consent of the staff, I was allowed to take pictures inside the church without taking pictures of people, just in line with the party's intention. There are also lifts outside the church to facilitate the access of the disabled to the church.
St Andrey's Church, one of the earliest churches in Hong Kong, has a history of more than 100 years. The beige English architecture gives people a quiet and deep feeling. The church does not need admission tickets to visit for free. It is surrounded by tall buildings. It has the feeling of classical and modern combination.
The territory of Hong Kong is really very cramped, a church is small, and the courtyard outside the church is small. Even if we retreat to the most corner of the courtyard, there is no way to photograph the whole church. St. Andrea's Church is the oldest Christian Church in Kowloon. It experienced the storms of World War II and was converted into a Japanese shrine during World War II. But nowadays, there are often charitable activities or exhibitions organized by public welfare organizations. Visits are free of charge.
St. Andrey's Church is a small, beautiful red brick building. Comparing with the magnificent churches in Europe, which are free of charge, this one can only be said to be small and delicate. It happened that there were some religion books on display inside the church. A little black brother also showed us how European printing looks like pushing a grinder, using the principle of leverage to press ink on paper instead of our traditional rubbing pattern of "brush".
When I arrived, it was not the time when the church was open, and I saw a notice at the door - "The church was a private place with 24-hour closed-circuit television. So I dare not rush in, only see the Stone Gate at the exit of Nathan Road. A glimpse of the whole leopard, from the Stone Gate can also roughly imagine the Gothic style of the church.
St. Andrey's Church in Hong Kong was built in 1906. It has a history of 100 years. It is located on Nathan Road. It is a two-storey Gothic building. Its exterior walls are made of red bricks. "St. Andrey's Church is quiet and quiet in the summer sunshine and shaded by trees.
