The Most Reverend Datuk Ng Moon Hing (simplified Chinese: 黄满兴; traditional Chinese: 黃滿興; pinyin: Huáng Mǎnxīng; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: N̂g Móan-hing; born 12 November 1955) is the Anglican Bishop of West Malaysia. He is also Archbishop of the Church of the Province of South East Asia.[1]

Ng was born on 12 November 1955 in the city of Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia. He studied for a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Monash University, Australia, graduating in 1978. After graduating, he worked as a civil engineer, taking part in the construction of Lumut Naval Base and several bridges in Malaysia.

Ng began to train for Christian ministry, and, in 1985, he graduated Bachelor of Divinity from Seminari Teologi Malaysia (STM). He was ordained deacon in June of that year. Subsequently, he was ordained priest in February of the following year. He was awarded a further Master of Divinity degree from STM in 1989.

In 1991, Ng was instituted as the Vicar of St. Peter's Church, Ipoh. In 1996, he was collated as a canon of St. Mary's Cathedral, Kuala Lumpur, and, in 2001, he was appointed Archdeacon of the Lower North Archdeaconry.

On 5 May 2007, Ng was consecrated bishop in his cathedral in Kuala Lumpur, becoming the 4th Bishop of West Malaysia, in succession to Bishop Lim Cheng Ean. His chief consecrator was the then Archbishop of South East Asia John Chew. Rowan Williams, then Archbishop of Canterbury, was also numbered among his consecrators.[2]

Ng served a term as chairman of the Christian Federation of Malaysia (CFM), from 2009 to 2013. In 2011, Ng was made Commander of the Order for State Service (Panglima Jasa Negara, PJN) by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, granting him the right to the Malaysian title 'Datuk'.[3]

On 2 September 2015, Ng was elected to become 5th Archbishop of the Church of the Province of South East Asia by an Extraordinary General Meeting of the church's Synod meeting in Sandakan, Sabah. He begin his four-year term of office on the 22 February 2016, succeeding Archbishop Bolly Lapok. He will continue to serve as Bishop of West Malaysia.[1]
