According to Ningbo Holy Church, Ningbo International Chapel, which has been planned for years, is going to be built. The foundation laying ceremony will be on Nov 26.
The International Chapel is located in the northeast of the junction of Fuqing North Road and Huizhan Road in the East New District. The whole project includes a main chapel holding 3,000 people, an international chapel for 500 people, and other supporting equipment. The total floor area is 11,296 square meters and the building area is 20,944.2 square meters.
As the future political, economic, cultural, and business center of Ningbo, the core area of the East New District has finished the transition of urban morphology after ten years' construction. In the meantime, the formalities for building Ningbo International Chapel have been settled as well.
During the preparation time for the new church, the churches in Ningbo started an activity called "Prayer and Donation First" inviting the congregants to pray and donate for building the new church. When the building work starts, the churches in Ningbo are going to set up church building groups to take turns praying for the building ministry.
It is reported that, according to the ratio of 2010 Ningbo believers to the general population, if the planned living and working population of the East District is 150,000 there will be 4,000 to 6,000 believers. So the building of the church has been put on the agenda at the time of planning. It is estimated that the church building will be finished in three years, and the total cost will be 80 million CNY.
