Getting to SIF

 

The Suzhou International Fellowship meets each Sunday at the Dushu Lake Church, located in SIP (Suzhou Industrial Park) on the east side of Dushu Lake. You can easily reach this location by car or taxi. There is also limited public bus service to this location. The church building is located in the middle of a park on the shore of Dushu Lake. This is a beautiful setting, but can make the building a little difficult to find for first-time visitors.

When you arrive by car or taxi, you will first arrive at the parking lot. You will need to walk from the parking lot through the park to find the church building. There are some signs posted along the park walkways to direct you to the church building.

Note: Suzhou International Fellowship uses the same church building as Dushu Lake Church. The Dushu Lake Church is a Chinese church. They hold a Chinese language service at 9:00am that is open to Chinese nationals and foreigners. The Suzhou International Fellowship (SIF) service starts at 11:00am (after the Chinese church service). The SIF service is in English. Due to Chinese government regulations, the SIF service is only open to foreign passport holders and their immediate family.
