    The Methodist Church was one of the mainline Protestant churches which sent missionaries to Hong Kong and China as early as mid-nineteenth Century. It began the mission work at Guangzhou and Foshan. By establishing a famous secondary school (Wah Ying) and a well-known hospital (Tsun To) attached with a nursing school at Foshan in the first half of the 20th Century, it gained quite a development in church work as well. This strategy of development had been successfully adopted by Methodist Church in Hong Kong and South East Asia in a latter period. By studying the thinking and lives of four main representatives of Methodist missionaries in this period, as well as the experiences of the development of the said secondary school and hospital, we could gain knowledge of the characteristics of the strategy of development of Chinese Methodist Church and the theological thinking behind. To recover the historical profile of Chinese Methodist Church by investigating dispersed archives and interviewing those survival senior ministers, church members and alumni of the secondary school and the nursing school related to the hospital, not only could we understand the church model and the contextualized theology of Chinese Methodist Church in their sociocultural contexts, but also lay a foundation to study the development of Christianity in Guangdong Province in the first half of 20th Century.
