China Aid Association
(Beijing - May 1, 2011) For the fourth Sunday in a row, Chinese police detained dozens of members of the Shouwang house church in Beijing, continuing a severe crackdown on one of the capital's largest house churches, according to confirmed reports obtained by ChinaAid.

By late morning, at least 31 members of Shouwang church were detained and taken to different police stations.

All of Shouwang church's leadership have been under informal house arrest since April 9 when the church was forced to have its first outdoor worship service. Many of the church's more than 1000 members had been prevented from leaving their homes each Sunday starting April 10. Last Sunday, more than half the church members were confined to their homes.
