The Mu'en Church, located at Xizang Central Road in Shanghai downtown, was originally the Methodist church of Shanghai.
History & Background
First established in 1887, the church was formerly named the Moore Church to memorize the great American donator Moore. In 1929, the church was moved westward to the present site.
The church was a new gothic church designed by a European architect. The construction was completed in 1931.
In 1936, an American Christian donated a cross of 5 meters high illuminated by neon light when he visited the church. The cross was installed on the top of the bell tower, making the church well known in Shanghai and Fareast Asia then.
In 1958, Christians of various denominational divisions worshiped here together and officially named it the Mu'en Church.
