It was replaced by a larger building in Wan Chai in 1933 and moved to Tsim Sha Tsui in 1967 with a second clubhouse at the container terminal in Kwai Chung that opened in 1975. In 1969 the Roman Catholic Apostleship of the Sea joined us in association, followed by the Danish Seamens Church in 1981 and the German Seamens Mission in 1995.
