In view of the soaring population in Shau Kei Wan and Sai Wan Ho in the 1960s, Reverend Pun Shiu-Wah, who was the principal of St. Mark’s School, resolved to seek advice from the Bishop of Hong Kong, Rowen Owen Hall, to develop a church in the vicinity. Thereafter, it began to conduct religious ceremonies such as Sunday Service and organize baptismal classes and Sunday school for the sake of offering spiritual comfort and education to the needy in times of hardships. In 1961, the church became an official diocese of the Sheng Kung Hui and was named the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Holy Nativity Church under the approval of the Standing Committee of the Diocese of Hong Kong and Macao. With its widespread influence in the neighourbood, it was promoted as the parish in 1993.
Located beside St. Mark’s Primary School, the church has forged a significant affiliation with St. Mark’s School. Its members are actively engaged in our school’s religious activities and provide ample service opportunities for our students to live a life of spirituality, responsibility and morality.
