NOTICE OF THE HOUSE OF BISHOPS:HKSAR Government’s Employment Support Scheme

With respect to the Employment Support Scheme launched by the HKSAR Government, the House of Bishops announces as follows:

The Province of Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui will not apply for wage subsidies under the Employment Support Scheme on its own behalf nor its churches’ behalf, and neither should churches make any application individually. Any church experiencing financial troubles during the COVID-19 pandemic must notify its diocese to explore solutions.

In the face of the impacts of the pandemic on the wider community, our province remains steadfast in the mission to witness the selfless love of God by serving the society in the spirit of “not to be served but to serve”.


By order of the House of Bishops

The Revd Canon Peter Douglas Koon
