Shanghai inaugurates a new church

A service was held to celebrate the relocation and reconstruction of a centennial church in Shanghai.

In Chongzhu Church in Chongming District, on September 17, Reverend Geng Weizhong, chairman of the Christian Council of Shanghai, preached a sermon titled “Building the Church in Love,” quoting Ephesians 4:1-16. . He urged all believers to become new creations in the love of Christ and to have a new appearance and a new life through the reconstruction of the church, the Shanghai CC&TSPM said.

The choir sang “United to Build Up the Church” in gratitude for the completion of the new church.

Relocated to Xiaogang Village, Zhoujia Lane, Chengqiao Town, Chongming County, the church spent three years constructing new buildings integrating worship, pastoral training, administrative work and meetings.

With the foundation stone laid in April 2018, the new church was completed in February 2021. It serves as the general church for Chongming District parishioners with a total construction area of ​​3,671 square meters (0.9 acres).
