The Development of Protestant Churches in Zhejiang Province (pre-1949 to 2004)

These maps illustrate the development of Protestant churches in Zhejiang Province at the township level from before 1949 to 2004. Prior to 1978, most townships did not have a Protestant church and few new churches were established. Between 1979 and 2004, however, there was a dramatic increase in the number of churches across Zhejiang except in the southwestern region. In particular, Wenzhou prefecture along the southern coast has the largest number and most widespread distribution of churches. Other areas with relatively high concentrations include coastal towns in the neighboring Taizhou and Ningbo prefectures, as well as some of the islands of Zhoushan, the inland county of Dongyang in Jinhua, and the western towns surrounding Lake Qiandao 千岛湖 in Hangzhou prefecture. Based on interviews and information from more recent sources, many additional churches have been established since 2004.
