Brief History 

In view of the love of Jesus Christ and Church’s care for the needs of the world, the Wesley Methodist Missionary Trust Society of England established a Sailors’ and Soldiers’ Home in Wan Chai in 1927. The Home was instituted to serve the British Armed Forces stationed in Hong Kong. In the 70’s, the size of garrison was reduced. The Missionary Trust Society then started to provide social service for local people through the Management Committee formed by representatives of the Methodist Church, Hong Kong and the English Speaking Methodist Church. In October 1980, Methodist Centre was established as one of the social service organizations under the Methodist Church, Hong Kong.
