lol agreed thats why i stop visiting these stupid megachurches, they aren't really teaching what Jesus desire anymore and keep dragging people for the so called "donation" and the priest would then preach how he travelled to USA or Israel with all its miracle, but anyhow i just found these building futuristic for a church

have you heard of City harvest which originated from Singapore? you can have nighclub style preaching sorry OOT megachurches are famous among SEAsian youth these days and im not doubting their faith

Singapore megachurch

Yes, in some cases. But megachurches also very often have ministries to the poor, the homeless, the elderly and those who are ill and cannot attend church. There is no charge for those services.

I do not attend a megachurch - I am Catholic and much prefer traditional worship and I love church architecture. Most megachurches are very ugly, in my opinion; they look like warehouses. But megachurches do provide help to people who need it.

This is a stunning building. It is obviously maintained in excellent condition. The paint looks new. Is the church in regular use for Mass?

I cannot find any information about Sa Bắc sub-parish church. It is one of many sub-parish churches of Nam Dinh province in Vietnam. Nam Dinh province is famous for having many beautiful churches, almost was built in Gothic architecture.

Many years ago, many churches are left empty due to the ban from the Goverment, but it's no longer exist now. All the churches are use for regular mass now. But the Goverment still keep many buildings belong to the churches and dont want to return them. Vatican keep asking Vietnamese Goverment to return all the buildings which's one time belong to the churches.
