Massive Church Building Project Underway in Ningbo

Chinese Church Voices is an occasional column of the ChinaSource Blog providing translations of original writing by Christians in China. The views represented are entirely those of the original author; inclusion in Chinese Church Voices does not imply or equal an endorsement by ChinaSource.

Last November, construction crews broke ground on a new TSPM church facility in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province. The massive project to build “Ningbo International Church” is slated to be completed within three years. The building plans for the church include a main worship space that covers 3400 square meters that can accommodate 3000 people, as well as a 600 square meter space set aside for a 500 person international congregation. The entire project is estimated to cost approximately 80 million RMB.

Gospel Times reported on the project and China Christian Daily recently posted a video that highlights Christianity in Ningbo and the details behind this government-back project.
