City Church International was started on the 4 June 2004 by Rob and Glenda Rufus.
The first meeting was held in their home in Sai Kung with eighteen people in attendance. It met there for next three months growing steadily until the house became too small to hold everyone. CCI then moved into the Hi-Tech center in Kowloon Bay. There it continued to grow, reaching both local Chinese people and foreigners alike.
The headphone translation system was first introduced there but in recent times we have moved to up front translation for the entire service as a means to reach more local Chinese people. After two years of being in the Hi-Tech center we decided to move again to a more central location that would serve us better. We relocated to Yau Ma Tei, to meet in a theatre in the YWCA main hall on Man Fuk Road. We are currently around 100-150 members made up of an equal amount of local Chinese people and foreigners.
