The University Chapel rental fee is fully charged by Hong Kong Baptist University, unrelated to our office. The financial income of Chaplain's Office comes from the donation of alumni, churches and friends. The wedding rental of University Chapel is an additional service by Chaplain's Office for churches and alumni. Thus, administration fee is slightly charged and paid to Hong Kong Baptist University. The administration fee includes staff clerical work, wedding procedures and related advisory.
