There are two catholic churches on Bintan Island which celebrate mass regularly.

If you are in Tanjungpinang, you can go to Christ The King church either Saturday at 6pm or Sunday at 8am.

if you are in Bintan resort you have to travel for about 45 minutes to reach church of St. Yohanes Don Bosco in Tanjung Uban. The mass schedule there only on Sunday at 9am.

Both churches celebrate mass in Bahasa Indonesia only.
