Yes, they do English ... in Shanghai, but only online ... 'cause of Covid ...

 

https://shanghaifellowship.org

 

Due to COVID-19, Shanghai Community Fellowship transitioned to having our services online. You can join us every Sunday at 11am, Shanghai time, on https://shanghaicommunityfellowship.online.church/ Any questions, please email us at: info@scfenglish.com

 

In the same time, you could d/l some real-western style church mucis over the iTunes or at my fav free p-2-p FrostWire ...

If you are that eager to bother God by caterwauling a few hours of one dimensional songs of worship, China was possibly not the best choice. Try a Zoom congregation but keep the noise down please, I'm trying to sleep.

Leave the past in the past. Use your opportunity of living in China to embrace new ways.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
