Christianity was introduced to Wenzhou, known as "China's Jerusalem", in 1867. The year 2017 marks the 150th anniversary.

A fellowship of Zhu-en Church of Longgang Town, Cangnan County, Zhejiang, started a tour to search out the roots of Christianity in Wenzhou on June 9, 2017.

More than 40 fellowship members visited Chengxi Church, which was founded by a missionary from the English Methodist Free Church Mission in 1878, Wenzhou Central Hospital initiated by William Edward Soothill, the Former Residence of Dr. T. A.Stedeford, a clergy house where pastors from the Methodist Church and rectors lived, and Moxi Primary School (formerly a hospital set up by William Soothill). They also went to Huayuanxiang Church built in 1877 and three cemeteries where missionaries from the China Inland Mission, nuns and a chief nurse of Blyth Hospital were buried.
