Authorities in Guizhou ban 2 house churches, confiscate possessions

China Aid
Translated by Carolyn Song. Written in English by Brynne Lawrence.

(Guiyang, Guizhou—Dec. 11, 2015) Religious affairs bureau officials in China’s southern Guizhou province recently banned two house churches and confiscated their possessions, claiming their properties had not been authorized as religious venues.

China Aid condemns the government-enforced closure of house churches and calls on Chinese authorities to immediately put an end to religious persecution.

The following are the government documents banning religious activities at the churches.

China Aid seeks to expose the abuses of religious freedom, such as those experienced by these religious institutions.
