Traveling habits and traditions

When you travel, do you have any traditions? For us, we like to visit a local church during the Sunday worship service. We have been able to do that in California and Hawaii, and we hope to find a church in Taiwan we can visit when we travel to pick up our child.

One of our most memorable experiences in Hawaii was a visit to Aloha Baptist Church on the Big Island. We had intended to just slip in and sit at the back, being the typical back-row Baptist that I am. But as soon as we walked in, we were welcomed as though we were old friends. During the service the congregation sang the Aloha song to us and presented us with beautiful, handmade cloth leis.


We found this listing of Taiwan churches online. If anyone has suggestions for Christian churches in Taipei, please let us know. I would love to hear about your travel habits, too.

    The churches on your list seem to all be English or bilingual churches here in Taiwan. Not a problem–just giving you the heads up. Grace Baptist in Taipei is probably the largest and is multilingual with many services in several languages.

    However, if you are wanting a “Taiwanese” (few or no foreigners attending) you can find churches VERY easily in Taiwan. Although most of them meet in regular looking buildings (very few have special construction making them look like a “church”), every single one of them will have a big, bright, red cross on the outside.

    For Taiwanese churches (not the bilingual/English ones) the meeting times for the main service are usually quite early–9:30 or 10:00. The bilingual/English ones meet later–either 11:00 or in the evenings.

    Hope that helps,

    Cindy, We contacted our International Mission Board missionaries serving in Taiwan before traveling. There are several in Taipei and I am sure that they would love to have you visit.
