Pretty much the best church I have seen in China so far. It is well maintained both inside and outside. My visit was on Sunday afternoon just before Labour's day so it was expected to be packed with locals and tourists. There were also some food vendors, though I haven't seen anyone actually buying something from them, so that might... More

It seems more of a fascination for the Chinese than foreigners. We went because my wife and daughter are Chinese and have a curiosity for Western religions. There are many beautiful paintings and statues of Christ and Mary, as well as the stations of the cross. It is a Catholic church and on Christmas Eve, the area is filled with... More

This is a real church where Catholics and Christians go to on Sunday mornings to celebrate the Holy Mass. the service is in English at 11:30 every Sunday. All are welcome. It is encouraging that I was able to continue attending mass and participate in the parish life after I started working in Tianjin. Catholics and others visiting or working... More

We went Sunday morning to visit and it was packed. For religious people, it is a must. The church is beautiful and the Chinese liturgy is amazing spiritual even if you do not understand the language.

Worth a short visit if you are seeking a spiritual break in an otherwise busy city. We took a short detour to visit this church on our way to the Porcelain House

We learned of the Xikai Church from tripadvisor and wanted to see this old church in the midst of a bustling Chinese city. It is a bit hard to find, but once you get there very tranquil. The church is interesting and its history is available in English. No charge to enter as it is still a functioning church so... More

Extremely well maintained and accessible. Beautiful exterior and an interior with numerous artefacts, paintings and statues. I was lucky enough to visit at Easter so it was thronging with visitors and locals.

Being in China for a few months and loving French/Italian churches, this church felt like coming home. It's simply stunning. If you're in Tianjin I suggest you visit this, if you have the time.
