What Mandarin accent(s) are these?

Earlier today I was on YouTube searching for videos where they speak Mandarin slowly and clearly (without any English translation because I wanted to focus just on how things are being pronounced) and I came across what look like Christian-related videos in Mandarin Chinese.

Now, I don’t need any translation. You don’t even have to listen to the whole thing, as long as you can tell me where the accents come from. I understand that within Mandarin there are different accents: Beijing, Tianjin, Harbin, Shanghai, Nanjing, Guangzhou/Hong Kong, Taipei, Hainan, etc.

Please tell me which region(s) of China these accents come from.
Thank you!

I can and did read the titles myself, thank you very much. But I wanted answers from native speakers.
