An Unofficial History of the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui in Four Chapters

Speaker: Revd Dr Philip Wickeri

There is a Chinese tradition of writing “unofficial histories,” written by people who were not historical actors but who were close to the action and who spent most of their time reading and writing. In four lectures, I will offer some sketches of our own “unofficial history” as a church, chosen somewhat randomly, but with a purpose to stimulate interest in history and archival work.
1. From the Diocese of Victoria to the Formation of the Province: An Overview
2. Curious and Inspiring Episodes from the Distant Church Past
3. Accidental Bishop: Sketches from the Life of John Gilbert Hindley Baker
4. The Life of Mind: Theological Education and Lay Training in the Sheng Kung Hui
