I don't know the exact location, so I've just put a marker on the barracks.

Demolition date from this document.

Does anyone know where further information may be obtained concerning the former St. Eligius' Church, located at Gun Club Hill Barracks which was demolished in the early 1990s to make way for the new military hospital on the site.

Any photos would be great.  Any details as to church denomination, consecration etc... would also be great.  I understand that it was the garrison church for the Hong Kong garrison - does anyone know if this was the case in fact, or perhaps it was only in respect of troops based Kowloon side.

Many thanks for any information available.

There are some photos of the barracks here.

And this document lists several garrison churches in Hong Kong. I don't know if any one of them was somehow the head church for all of HK?

  • Sham Shui Po Garrison Church
  • 33 General Hospital Chapel
  • St Eligius Church
  • LYEMUN Garrison Church
  • STANLEY FORT St Barbara
  • STANLEY FORT Garrison Church
  • VICTORIA Garrison Church
