In its early decades, it was a center of colonial life in Hong Kong.

More recently, it has opened itself widely to other communities in Hong Kong, becoming a truly international church with services held in several languages. Drawing on extensive archives and written in a lively style, this first comprehensive history of St Johns traces the cathedrals roles as a colonial parish church, a bishops seat for a diocese that once covered the whole of China and beyond, and a center of worship for a modern cosmopolitan community.Imperial to International is the first volume in the new series Sheng Kung Hui: Historical Studies in Chinese Anglicanism, copublished by the Hong Kong University Press and the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui.
