UPDATE: Detained Shouwang Church Pastors Released, Believers Detained for Second Attempt at Outdoor Worship

Saturday, April 16, 2011

(Beijing -- April 17, 2011) Two pastors of the Beijing house church that tried to worship outdoors last weekend were released late Saturday and early Sunday morning, but 30 members of Shouwang Church who attempted to worship Sunday morning at the same site for the second week in a row have been detained, ChinaAid has learned.

Shouwang Church's senior pastor Jin Tianming was returned home early Sunday morning, and Pastor Li Xiaobai and his wife were sent home late Saturday night. Both were taken away by police Saturday evening.

Many members of Shouwang Church were restricted to their homes Sunday morning and unable to attend Shouwang Church's second outdoor worship service this year. Of those who were able to show up again at the same outdoor worship site where they had gathered last Sunday, at least 30 have been detained.

Last Sunday, 169 church members were rounded up by police and held for up to 24 hours when they attempted to hold a worship service in a public plaza in western Beijing.
