Zhongshan Christian Presbyterian Church 中山基督長老教會

Anchor point


The church is famous because of its stately and elegant gothic style. Its silvery shiny wall and three-tiered bell tower catch one’s attention from afar. Overlooking from the top, one can see that the church has a cruciform rooftop. The arch column at the main gate of this historical building of Taipei City is carved with “Built in March 1937”. The changes of the church's exterior chronicle the history of Zhongshan District. During the Japanese colonial period, this Christian Church, built by the Japanese, was near a place called Taisho Cho, hence its original name, “Taisho Street Anglican Church”. As Zhongshan Church has been properly maintained and in use during all these years, it still stands strong and beautiful after 60 years, carrying significant architectural values. 

There are various gatherings and worshiping services from Monday to Sunday; visitors are advised to call in advance.

    Captivating church has active ministry


    The TCS Church is a very attractive building with a vaulted ceiling and an imposing pulpit, showing fine craftsmanship. There is a stained glass fanlight over the entrance. The tower is very well made; it is lit up at night. The Church is highlighted by its corner position. The terra cotta roofing is simple, but engaging. The Church's congregation is mainly composed of local people, though the Church has an active ministry and everyone is welcome. TCS Church is also known for facilitating art exhibitions. The Church is at 62 Linsen North Road

    Both inside and outside, this little church, nests this attractive church in the midst of multistory buildings. During the day the church is locked, but if one goes to the office next door (In the courtyard), there is a person there most willing to open up and show you inside. While it may look simple, there is an elegance about it that makes it very appealing, and place one would participate in worship.

    林森北路沿いにある、趣のあるキリスト教会。 日本統治時代に建てられた、中山基督長老教会だ。 リズミカルなコントラストを作り出す、黒い自然石と白い壁。 シンプルながら素敵な色合いの、ステンドグラス。 その荘厳な佇まいに、思わず見とれてしまう。 建てられた当時、この辺りは大正町と称されており、この教会も、元々は聖公会大正町教会という名前だったそう。 日本人が建てた教会が、長年にわたって、地元の方に愛され手入れされ、今も変わらない姿を保っていことに、胸が熱くなる。
