A gospel-centred community
pursuing the mission of Christ.
Watermark started on 10/10/10 as a church plant from Island Evangelical Community Church, with a core group of 43 people led by Tobin and Christina Miller. From the beginning, God has grown the church in spite of the lack of a permanent venue. In 2016, God provided us with Ebenezer School as a regular meeting place and a new Community Centre in Sai Ying Pun. Our history has reinforced our biblical conviction that the church is the people, not the building.
Our desire is not to be a bunch of ‘sorted’ religious people, but a community of broken sinners who are walking alongside each other and pointing each other to Jesus in all of life. That means church is not a series of meetings, but a multi-generational family you belong to.
We believe that every believer has gifts and a unique role to play, so that church is not a ‘spectator sport’, but a family where everyone is involved in serving each other. Leaders are here to equip the church to grow in Jesus, develop their gifts, and use their passions to serve Christ, each other, and the city.
We believe that the gospel is the greatest need of the city. Every believer is called as Christ’s ambassador for the gospel in the workplace, family, or relational networks. So we speak the gospel, but also demonstrate it through our community life, serving the poor and marginalised, and loving the hurting and needy.
We believe in the importance of planting new congregations to make followers of Jesus from different areas and demographics. We want to train future leaders to disciple others and be involved in planting out congregations.
The heart of the gospel message is that God saves sinners through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ ‒ not by your effort, but God’s grace.
We are all created for community, a spiritual family that loves you for who you are, and loves you enough to help you become who God created you to be.
We are called to take part in God’s mission to bring healing and restoration to our city and world, by sharing His love in both our words and actions.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is the one who builds His church. With Him as our model of servant leadership, we are shepherded by a team of elders who serve and lead the church family by overseeing our direction and spiritual health: Oscar Chow, Edward Tsui, Kevin Murphy, Franklin Tseng, Graham Smith, and Chris Thornton.
We believe that worship is our positive response to God’s revelation. Our worship arts include all the artistic elements of our corporate worship, including everything done by our production crews, musicians, service directors, and Scripture readers to lead our church in worshipping God.
We exist to see the Gospel transform kids’ hearts, and aim to help kids become followers of Jesus Christ. On Sundays, children experience worship together with all generations, then go to class, where they learn about God’s Word and how to apply it in a context they can best understand.
We aim to equip parents to disciple their youth, enable others to speak truth into the lives of students, and prepare youth to take the next step in their personal journeys with Christ. Friday night fellowship and teaching takes place regularly at the Watermark Community Centre.
Gathering regularly in various locations, small groups of people connect with Christ as the common focus. We believe that church is not just an event you attend, but a community centred on the Gospel and sharing life together, in a way that is visible for those outside the church to see.
Watermark Community Church 普通话事工主要服事说普通话的大学生，博士生 ( 磐石普通话团契 ) 以及职业人等各届人士 ( 方舟普通话小組 )，希望为在港学习或工作的基督徒提供一个属灵的家。通过周日敬拜及周间查经和聚会，我们希望彼此鼓励共同在基督里成长，讨神的喜悦，并成为香港这个城市的祝福。
We reach out to the University of Hong Kong through the HKU International Christian Fellowship (ICF) by equipping student leaders to do ministry on their campus. We hope to give a home to Christians studying overseas, while also having an impact on those who don’t know Christ yet.
Our vision is to train and equip people to understand and care for one another. We provide courses on topics such as biblical counselling, listening skills, and how people change. We also provide private Christian counselling services regarding premarital matters, stress, and personal growth.
The Bible teaches God’s heart for justice and love for the poor and marginalised, so we are called to have the same heart. We partner with several mission organisations to reach out to those trapped in our city’s red-light districts, vulnerable teen moms, and marginalised inner city minorities.
Every aspect of our church requires administrative support, which makes this a unique ministry in and of itself. What we do as a church could not happen without this dedicated work in doing ministry behind the scenes and taking care of our facilities, finances, and other resources.
Watermark has an office and ministry home in Sai Ying Pun. We believe all people have been created for community, a product of the gospel. God provided this space to allow us to put community into practice and serve the people of this city. During the week, we host our own ministry and outreach activities, as well as those of our partner organisations. You are also welcome to book it or drop by.

We gather every Sunday for worship service at 10:30am. The venue is usually the Ebenezer School (Jockey Club New Wing), but check this website for any updates before visiting. There is no dress code, but many of us wear smart casual attire. For the worship service, you can expect a 90-minute program of Scripture reading, prayer, singing, preaching, and a few other elements. Typically, we observe Communion (the Lord’s Supper, Eucharist) every two weeks, and have a church-wide lunch twice a month. If you have children, they will usually join us in the service before being dismissed to their own age-specific gatherings.
