If you have been wondering about that fancy-looking, coral-pink building on Gloucester Road in Wan Chai, then ponder no longer - the 13-floor edifice is to be the new Asian headquarters for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and it is just about ready. The church, whose members are more commonly known as Mormons, will move into the new building in June. It transferred its previous home, the historic Kom Tong Hall in Mid-Levels, back to the government last year. 'It was the increase in the number of members that caused the church to transfer it back,' said church spokeswoman Ann Castleton. 'It was a pretty happy reason for us to have to move. 'They are just finishing off the inside of the new building now.' With gross floor space of 6,940 square metres, the new building houses three chapels - one of which has room for 800 worshippers - three apartments, administrative offices, a classroom, a basketball court and a gym. It will also contain a family research centre that the public will be able to use for free. People the world over use the Mormons' extensive family-tree database to hunt for their own ancestry. 'The public is welcome to use the centre to research their family history,' Mrs Castleton said. 'The doctrine of the church is that families are together forever ... and people are more at peace when they have that knowledge with them.' Mrs Castleton was unable to say how much the new facility cost, although given its location she was confident it would not have been cheap. Its construction was funded through member contributions. In a process called tithing, most pay 10 per cent of their gross income to the church to finance its expansion and facilities. 'The facility will be a base from which the church - which has about 22,000 members and more than 100 missionaries in Hong Kong - will hope to spread its message throughout the region,' she said. However, one place they will not be spreading the word is on the mainland. 'China does not want missionaries so we do not go across the border,' she said. Tours of the new building for the public will be held on June 3 and 4.
