Date Place completed: 
1866-01-01
Date Place demolished:

This church stood on the corner of Po Yan Street and Hollywood Road.

The first Anglican missionary sent to Hong kong to establish a Chinese congregation was the Revd. Thomas Stringer, who arrived in 1862. Two years later, a site on Gap Street - now a part of Hollywood Road - was secured for a church. St. Stephen's was opened there in 1866. It was hoped that the new congregation would have the support of the Christian old boys from St. Paul's, but they showed little interest.
