Danish chaplain leaves Hong Kong

After 17 years as chaplain for the Danish Seamen’s Church in Hong Kong, Hans Aage now returns to Denmark. A farewell event will be held on Tuesday, June 30, at Mariner’s Club.

The Danish Seamen’s Church in Hong Kong is a lot more than just a church. They both support, socialize and help exchange students, trainees, families and tourists in the city of skyscrapers.

Hans-Aage Koller Nielsen has been the chaplain of the church for now 17 years. Besides making the church a rallying point for the Danes living in Hong Kong a part of his job has also been to support the seamen, when a Danish ship enter Hong Kong.

On Tuesday, 7 pm, the church wants to give Hans Aage a warm and informal farewell for the many good years in Hong Kong before he returns to Denmark.
