    Last updated: Jun 12, 2019
    The Young John Allen Memorial Church was built in 1923 and named after the American Methodist missionary who founded the Anglo-Chinese College in the 1880s, located across the street. It was frequented by the Soongs back in the 20s and 30s, and it's allegedly where Chiang Kai-shek was baptized in 1930. During the Cultural Revolution, much of the interior was destroyed. Originally named "Jinglin Church" (景林堂), taking the first character of Young John Allen's Chinese name Lin Lezhi (林乐知) and meaning something like "Revere Allen Church", it was renamed "Jingling Church" (精灵堂) in 1981. It's got a two-story building and a three-story main building. They hold weekly Sunday services in Chinese.
