The resumption of sovereignty over Hong Kong by China in 1997 was smooth for the Christian denominations in Hong Kong. Hong Kong became an independent Anglican province, and Paul Kwong, the Bishop of Hong Kong Island became the first Archbishop of the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui. Kwong contributed as a member of the Basic Law Drafting Committee in ensuring religious freedom. The governance of St John’s remained unchanged and the freehold of the land remained vested in the trustees.
