New Church Dedicated in 'Oriental Jerusalem' Wenzhou
By Zhu-en Church , November 28, 2017 05:11 AM
The Zhu-ai Church was dedicated in Wenzhou, known as "China's Jerusalem" or “Oriental Jerusalem” on November 17 to 18, 2017. More than 3,000 people attended the ceremony.
Located in Longgang Town, Cangnan County, the church was previously a branch of Zhu-en Church. In May 2002, the latter purchased a factory with over 1.4 million yuan to build a church for the gathering.
Its congregation has increased from 300 to over 800. The new construction kicked off in March 2015 and was completed in November 2016, costing about 20 million yuan.
After the dedication, a thanksgiving anniversary service and a winter retreat were held in the church.
