Trinity Church (San Yi Tang 三一堂)

As more and more Christians moved to Kulangsu in the 1920s, Xiamen Church, New Street Church and Bamboo Church cooperated to make worship more convenient by building a Kulangsu church in 1934.

The name “Trinity Church” alludes to its joint construction by the three churches, as well as the doctrine of the Trinity. (The Chinese translation for “trinity,” san yi 三一, literally means “three one.”) The church was designed by Lin Rongting, and a Dutch architect made additional designs for the roof.

为方便岛上人数日增的教徒做礼拜,于1934年由厦门港、新街和竹树脚三个礼拜堂联合筹建此教堂,取名“三一堂”,既寓意三堂共建,有寓意圣父、圣子、圣灵三位一体。该教堂是林荣廷主持设计,一位荷兰建筑师做了一些额外的屋顶设计。
