What English-language religious services are available locally?

Yes, all are available, I think. - Sep 12, 2017
Ummmm, not sure. I know they are there though. - Jun 8, 2015
There are churches, but there may not be one specifically for some of the smaller denominations. There is good information online about churches, with service hours, both on Fridays, the standard day, and Sundays. - May 19, 2013
Yes. There is an English Language mosque; Catholic, Anglican and Evangelical churches offer English services. The Anglican church compound has about 70 different denominations using it at the weekend from Ethiopian Orthodox to Pentecostals. - Jul 20, 2012
Some Christian services, but only in state-sanctioned facilities. No synagogue. Widespread Muslim observance, of course, but only in Arabic that I've ever heard of. - Aug 9, 2011
Probably. The UAEG will tolerate limited non-Muslim religious practice but don't try converting Emiratis or anything or you will be jailed or deported. - Jul 17, 2011
