Changsha Xingsha Ecological Park, the largest Christian theme park in southern China, will be opening during this coming Spring Festival. It's reported by local media that the park will be a perfect place for people to stroll around, pray, and shoot wedding photos.
The park covers an area of over 150,000 square meters. A two-minute report on Hunan City Channel focused on the 80-meter high Xingsha Church in the middle of the park many times.
According to Pastor Chen Zhi, president of Hunan CCC, Xingsha Church and Hunan Bible Institute are both in the park and cover an area of 40 mu (26,666 square meters). Xingsha Church will be put into use in June 2017.
The main building of Xingsha Church is like a huge ark floating on water, and the streamlined skirt looks like waves lifting the ark. The lighthouse of the church is almost 80 meters high and will shine glamorously at night through glass. When you take the elevator up to the viewing platform of the lighthouse, the local beauty will present itself at a glance.
