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.

  1. Godt gået Hans Aage!
    Og tak for din hjælpsomhed, de gange jeg har haft brug for den i Hong Kong.

    Og det portræt jeg lavede af dig for mange år siden, det tog tre dage at overtale dig 😀 , til den lokale avis i Århus, er et af de mere spændende, jeg har sat på skriveblokken, og derefter lavet om til en fantastisk historie om dit liv både i Danmark, og i Hong Kong.

    Du ønskes det bedste, i din nye livsfase i Danmark.
