Over 100 Believers from Shouwang Church of Beijing Detained for Worshipping Outdoors

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Translated by China Aid Association

(Beijing – April 12, 2011) Shouwang Church, one of the largest Christian house churches in Beijing, held an outdoor worship service this Sunday, April 10. They were dispersed by the authorities and over 100 believers were taken away by force. At this time, a pastor and his wife are still being detained at the local police station.
Jin Tianming, the main pastor of Shouwang Church, said he wonders why the authorities dispatched so many people and used so much material resources to prevent the church from holding its outdoor worship service on Sunday. 
According to Pastor Jin, a total of 169 Christians were taken away by the police, though they began to release the detainees gradually starting early Sunday evening. However, at this time, a pastor and his wife are still being detained at the local police station. As for Pastor Jin, he was placed under house arrest early Saturday evening and was not allowed to go out until Monday. At this time, he is still under surveillance by some people outside the house.
