瑞士巴色會於1851年到港,1861年在西營盤高街設立總部和教堂「四角樓」,更設立「巴色女義學」推動女子教育。有見當時西營盤以客家人為主,教會採用客家語宣教。1927年,教會脫離瑞士巴色會管轄,自立為「祟真會」,並於1931年重建「四角樓」成為今天的「救恩堂」。現時教堂為香港一級歷史建築,並逢星期二至五,早上十至十二時、二至五時開放供遊客入內參觀。

The Basel Mission from Switzerland arrived in Hong Kong in 1851, establishing its headquarters and the ‘Sai Kwok Lau’ church on High Street in Sai Ying Pun in 1861. It also founded the Basel Public School in order to promote education for women. Considering the large Hakka population in Sai Ying Pun, the church adopted the Hakka dialect to preach. The church became independent from Basel Mission and established itself as the Tsung Tsin Mission in 1927. In 1931, it rebuilt the Sai Kwok Lau church, which has become today’s Kau Yan Church. As a Grade I historic building, the church nowadays welcomes public visits from 10am to 12pm, 2 to 5pm, on Tuesday through Friday.
