What English-language religious services are available locally?

Due to the country's long history of religious diversity, there options for Catholics, Christians, LDS, Muslims and Hindus (although somewhat limited in English). There is a synagogue but no rabbi so it's ad-hoc. If you're interested in Buddhism, this is the place for you, as the majority of the country is Buddhist and generally VERY devout. A lot of expats get into meditation. - Mar 2019

I know there are local Catholic, Baptist, and LDS churches in the city. There's also a synagogue downtown. - Sep 2018

Catholic, non-denominational Protestant, Church of Latter Day Saints, Quaker meetings - Feb 2017

I know for sure there are English Church services. Not sure about other religions. - Feb 2014
