(Chengdu, Sichuan—April 28, 2020) On Saturday, police summoned Christians from Sichuan province’s Early Rain Covenant Church.
A Christian, who did not want to reveal her name, told ChinaAid the police brought in Christians in charge of church activities and online services. They demanded the Christians stop the ongoing church projects and holding online services.
The informant also noted the police have only summoned Christians during the church’s online services. This indicates the police are still monitoring the church’s actions.
In addition, one of the church’s members, Ran Yunfei, was brought to the police station on Friday. Ran was scheduled to give a testimony during one of the services, forcing it to change its agenda at the last minute. After the service ended, Ran was escorted home.
