(Shenzhen, Guangdong—April 3, 2017) According to local Christians, police officers recently raided two house churches in China’s southern Guangdong province.

More than 10 government personnel interrupted a group of Christians praying at Olive Church on March 19 and accused the congregation of lacking legal registration and conducting religious activities. About 20 of the church members were detained and released later that day.

Previously, authorities confiscated various articles of Olive Church property and seized 30 of its members, including leaders Jiang Jianping and Tan Xiuhong, during a raid on July 10, 2016. Of those later released, four were administratively detained.

Similarly, the public security and religious affairs bureaus combined forces to target Huaqiangbei Bible Guizheng Church in Shenzhen, Guangdong. Officers confiscated the church’s possessions here as well. In response, the church’s meetings have fractured to several satellite locations for members’ safety.

ChinaAid exposes abuses such as those experienced by churches in Guangdong in order to stand in solidarity with persecuted Christians and promote religious freedom, human rights, and rule of law.
