Did you try seaching the interweb or even this website first?

 

Two Christian churches in Nanning listed here (I assume Protestant as they are not listed as Catholic):

http://listings.echinacities.com/nanning/detail/5905-Zhongshanlu-Christi...

http://listings.echinacities.com/nanning/detail/5906-Gonghelu-Christian-...

 

Gonghe lu might be able to help you as they've had American Baptists giving free English clases there in the past:  https://www.baptiststandard.com/news/texas/9054-san-antonio-woman-believes-god-prepared-place-of-service-in-china

 

The problem you'll have with both of these is that the services will be in Chinese and probably for Chinese citizens only.

 

I live in Guangzhou and there is one place where the government allows non-Chinese to go and have weekly services but they don't allow Chinese citizens to go there.

 

Good luck as the above is all I can find except for this: http://www.nanninghere.com/location-protestant-church-in-nanning

Try contacing the Indian guy who left his phone number in the 3rd post in 2012.

Hi hotwater. I had went to the very location and had called the indian guy in which his phone was inactive aka dead. We did went to the very location which is on Gong He Lu number 168 very close to the parkson compound Chong San Lu.

The Church is called GONG HE LU CHURCH OF NANNING. Sadly for us the English church were no more and none in our group understands Chinese.

It truly looks like a great church to be apart of.

The church building are right beside a hotel called Yeste Hotel and another hotel called Baba Hotel.

The sermon were held on 2nd floor and children's service on 3rd.

I guess Christians expat in Nanning should group up and make their own community- cell in my opinion- or some sort of bible study group once a month or something.

Anyway thanks for the info.

Not sure about Nanning I was attending church here regularly in Wuhan for sometime, always felt uncomfortable, and each service lasted anything between 120- 160 minutes that heck of a long time. It was always relayed in Chinese language with  around 300 people present each time. The last time I attended I was shocked that a young man aged around 18 came out in priests  garments and started to conduct the service. Later outside I was totally insulted by a middle aged woman, who approached me and bluntly spoke that I was not a true Christian as I had tattoo's. Well you can take the rug from under my feet, kick me around the floor, call me names but this has been the biggest insult throughout my life. If this had been a man I would be in prison. I was totally insulted by this remark. I have been baptised, christened, and have attended RC mass services throughout my life regularly and in all 42 countries I have visited, and had to come to China to be insulted in the highest degree. Never again in China to any church service.

We have big 'religion thing' going on in Jianou. We have Christian church, close to my apartment. A month ago, I got lost in the city, and I called rep. When I told him, I'm in front of the Christian church, he told me, he never heard of church in the city.

They don't use it for religious purposes. Entrance to church is filled with books, so it looks like some kind of a library or storage, but architecture is 'Christian church'.

We have group of people, dressed in black kimono like dresses, burning small (2 m length) paper ship. The ship is made out of wire, and then they stick paper in red colour on it. After they're done with burning, they take ship with them for the next time session. Their music remains me on buddhist thingy. Clinging, and singing.

Nanning, I've never been there. You could ask at the bank or hospital. Some bankers and MDs speak English.

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
