On June 5, 2018, the Hudson Taylor Memorial Building was opened in Zhenjiang, Jiangsu province, where the great missionary is buried. In the past one year and some, Christians have visited the site on a nearly daily basis. They have come to the place of their spiritual ancestor who lived there about one hundred years ago and it has reinvigorated their souls.
James Hudson Taylor was the founder of the China Inland Mission who, beginning in 1853, dedicated his life to the mission work in China. In 1905, the British missionary died in Changsha and his coffin was carried back to Zhenjiang. And according to his wishes, he was buried next to his first wife, Maria Dyer Taylor, and their four stillborn children in a cemetery of Zhenjiang.
On August 28, 2013, the graves of Hudson Taylor and Maria Taylor were relocated to the cemetary at the Zhenjiang Hudson Taylor Memorial Church, also known as the Xuande Church. A building was also built to mark this prominent missionary.
