History

William Roderick McKay (1871-1960), was a Presbyterian and later United Church missionary who established the South China mission. He was born in Springfield, Nova Scotia and attended Dalhousie University, Pine Hill Theological College and Princeton Seminary. He served at Kennetcook and Gore until he and his wife, Mary O’Brien, were appointed as missionaries to the then Portuguese city of Macau. In 1907 they proceeded to Kong Moon, a freeport, where twenty churches were to be built under the direction of Rev. McKay.
After 35 years in the mission field of South China, the McKays returned to Canada and lived in Toronto until the death of the Rev. McKay in 1960.
