Ambassador International Church has had a long relationship with Bethany Ministries. Bethany was established as a Christian Retreat Centre for those working on the front line in the Pacific Rim countries, providing good food and accommodation as well as counselling available when needed.
Bethany is located on Cheung Chau Island, a short ferry journey from Central. The centre is about twenty minutes walk up hill on Fa Peng Peak, overlooking the South China Sea. The campus includes three buildings – the Cottage where the work began 25 years ago, the House, and the Lodge, which provide 50 beds in family and single rooms, many with ensuite bathrooms.
The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the restful environment contains a number of secluded seating areas. There are also many walks and good swimming beaches nearby.
Bethany is independent of any organization and is dependent solely on the donations of supportive friends and those who stay at the centre. The hospitality staff are paid but are supervised by volunteers. Ambassador members, Ding and Tes Rumbaua, work at Bethany and are responsible for the grounds and catering.
