"Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens."
Standing in the Garden of Awakening, you may feel as if you have left the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong and entered a solitary sanctuary. This large tracts of grassland surrounded by nothing but tall trees was a place of dialogue for our founder Rev. Karl and his friends and Buddhist monks back in the day. When you need a break, you can sit down and rest on the boulders arranged by Wang Ching Ch’ing, the first Chinese Lutheran pastor at Tao Fong Shan, and his students in the 1930s.

Walk With Tao Fong
Tao Fong Shan Christian Center was founded by a Norwegian missionary Rev. Karl Ludvig Reichelt from over 90 years ago. Located on a scenic hill above Sha Tin, the Centre has been accorded Grade 2 Historic Building and is considered state-of-the-art in many ways, from combining traditional Chinese architecture with Christian faith to having a rich history of nurturing interfaith and interculture dialogue to preaching gosel through Chinese Christian porcerlain art. Today, the Centre remains a melting pot of religions, cultures, and stories.
To tell the many wonderful stories and history of Tao Fong Shan, we created a series of guided tours, Walk with Tao Fong. Our staff will arrange a tour for you or your friends depending on your interests, it is a great experience for you if you hope to enjoy a day of peace and away from the city, or if you want to learn more about who we are or the story behind our traditional Chinese architecture.
