2 Bridges Street

The Preaching House of the American Congregational Church (now the China Congregational Church) was founded by American missionary C.R. Hager in 1883. Dr Sun Yat-sen was baptised there in June of the same year and also resided on the third floor of the house from 1884 to 1886 when he was studying at Government Central School. The preaching house was later relocated and the building was demolished. The site was once home to the Bridges Street Market, which was built in 1953. The building was converted into a Hong Kong News-Expo in 2018.
