From Oct. 19-26, the national TSPM chairman Presbyter Fu Xianwei and China Christian Council president Rev. Gao Feng were invited by Christian organization heads to conduct an exchange with local Christian ministers in Hong Kong and Macau, according to report by Chinese Protestant Churches of China.

During their visit, Fu and Gao and the entire entourage of 10 other CCC/TSPM provincial leaders had a meaningful dialogue and friendly exchange with the local ministers. Since the newly elected CCC/TSPM leaders took office, this is the first formal vistation for them.

On the day that the entourage arrived in Hong Kong, they were able to participate in the 90th Anniversary Celebration of The Hong Kong Council of the Church of Christ in China. In the past years, HKCCCC has always had a good relationship with CCC/TSPM. Fu presented a congratulating gift to HKCCCC.

Then, on Oct. 20, the church leaders from China visited the office of Hong Kong Anglican Archbishop, where they met with Hong Kong Archbishop Rev. Paul Kwong and former Archbishop of Hong Kong, Rev. Peter Kong-kit Kwong. In their meeting, Fu shared their working plan since the intallments of the new leaders.

Later, they visited the Hong Kong Chinese Christian Churches Union. Through dialogue, both parties expressed their willingness to cooperate in building a harmonious society through improving their services to the people.

In addition, Fu and his group met with fellow coworkers from Hong Kong Chinese Christian Alliance, Hong Kong Association of Christian Publishers, Amity Press Hong Kong office, and Hong Kong Bible Society, and had warm exchanges with them.
