SALT LAKE CITY — Meetinghouses of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints worldwide can be somewhat diverse, a new photo essay shows.

A feature titled "Mormonism in Pictures: Chapels Dot the Globe" includes about two dozen photos from various meetinghouses around the world and information on church membership history in some of those places.

It includes the Gadfield Elm Chapel in England, which is one of the oldest Latter-day Saint meetinghouses in the world. That chapel, which features a rock wall interior, is the only church historic site outside of the U.S.

The church has more than 15 million members worldwide, the majority of whom live outside the U.S.

Each week, more than 29,000 church congregations meet for worship services in more than 150 countries and territories, according to Mormon Newsroom.

Other photos show church buildings in Madagascar, South Korea, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, El Salvador, Albania, Ecuador and several other locations, including the church's first solar-paneled meetinghouse in Farmington, Utah.

To view the complete feature, go to Mormon Newsroom.
