In the spiritual realm of practice, worship, dialogue, and learning
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 intercultural dialogue to preaching the Gospel through Chinese Christian porcelain 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.
The Spirituality Walk tour focuses on spiritual exercises. Our spiritual directors will take you on the journey of meditation, prayer, and reflection, to experience the presence of the Lord and learn spiritual renewal, thus live the life God intended.
The goal of the LIFE Walk tour is to help our participants realize the different journeys of life in the nature and tranquil cemetery of Tao Fong Shan, explore the meaning and values of life and true self through understanding and respect for life. We hope our participants can experience the fullness of body, mind, society, and spirituality.
The Art Walk tour introduces the art history of Tao Fong Shan where our staff will walk you through the historic buildings and design, learn how a Danish achitect, Johannes Prip-Møller, carried out his idea of incorporating Christianity into Hui Style architecture, the exquisite Christian canton porcelains produced by the Art Ministry, and how Tao Fong Shan preached the gospel through art.
From the early days of Karl Ludvig Reichelt’s life in China to the difficult years of founding the Centre and amid the Japanese occupation. The LIFE Walk will lead you through different parts of Tao Fong Shan with anecdotes, where you will see and learn the historical relics in this scenic countryside, and understand the contribution of the Centre in the history of Christianity in Modern China.
