Xmas Mass in Hangzhou 2019-04-01
Churches in Hangzhou are already busy working out Christmas service schedules and listed below are the details of some of these, all of which offer you a better insight into choosing the right sanctuary for your Xmas mass.

Sicheng Christian Church (思澄堂)

Having been erected on Hangzhou’s grounds for eighty years, Sicheng Christian Church is the only ancient protestant church in Hangzhou and is the largest of its kind in Hangzhou’s history.

It incorporates both western elements and Chinese-style architecture into its design. Dove-tail eaves and Zhizhai windows (also known as hung and remove windows consist of two parts, the upper part can be hung up for ventilation, while the lower part can be removed to allow more light in.) which are most commonly seen in Chinese garden designs are key features of this uniquely designed Chinese church.

Dating back to the eighth year of Xianfeng’s reign of the Qing Dynasty (1858), the ancient church witnessed and played a significant role in Hangzhou’s history. When the Japanese invaded Hangzhou, it served as a refuge shelter for the Hangzhounese and then was later transformed in 1945 by the Japanese to the ‘Sino-Japan Culture Hall’. During the period of Chinese Cultural Revolution, the church was occupied by the Hangzhou Library and it is not until 1981, after the religion policy in China was settled, that the church was given back and has since become one of the most important churches in Hangzhou.

Chongyi Church (崇一堂)

Chongyi Church is the largest Chinese church in the world and can accommodate 5,500 people at one time.

Chongyi Church, now located in Xintang Road, was designed and rebuilt in 2005 by Christians. The design of the architecture abandons all unnecessary decorations and differs from the traditional cross-shaped plane of most churches. The main hall of Chongyi Church creatively applies the design of a fan-shape with a raised ceiling and no columns but gives the congregation the best in audio and visual effects.

The new Chengbei Christian Church covers an area of 1350 sq meters and with its façade decorated by four eight-meter-high ceiling-to-floor windows of strong religious flavor, the church shines brightly along the majestic Grand Canal and warmly welcomes you to Christmas Mass.
