Bangkok - Post Report Question and Answers

What English-language religious services are available locally?

I think everything: big expat community in general. - Feb 2023

I'm a practicing Catholic, so I can only really comment on the Catholic Churches. We attend Our Lady of Mercy which is about 15mins north of Nichada, and it offers one Sunday English mass and English faith formation classes (CCD). Holy Redeemer downtown (very close to US Embassy) offers multiple English masses on Saturday and Sundays, and CCD. Note that most parishes are open air - so prepare for church to be a hot event. Multiple other Christian denominations are present, and many offer English services, I just don't know how far away those churches are from Nichada. - Jan 2023

Plentiful in just about any religion or denomination: mosques, shabbat/Jewish, Catholic services (in multiple locations), a wide variety of Protestant denominations and flavors (from traditional mainline to evangelical/charismatic), LDS/Mormon. After all, Bangkok has a huge English-speaking expat community. - May 2022
