WORSHIP

There are many places of worship in Shanghai. One church in Xujiahui has room for 600 worshippers. Allegedly, only foreign passports holders can attend religious services at the places listed below. However, most of the time, passports are not checked – this seems to be a method to keep the locals from coming to practice their English.
