International Christian Concern | Nov. 13, 2018
International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that Pastor Huang Xiaoning from Guangzhou Bible Reformed Church (GBRC) was detained for five days by the police for ‘disrupting public services’ on November 10.
According to Father Francis Liu on Twitter, Pastor Huang decided to fast and pray inside the police station for the five-day duration. He is the fourth pastor in China who has been detained for ‘disobedience’ regarding the latest regulations on religious affairs published last February.
China Aid also reported that the next morning, a few police officers were stationed outside of the church to discourage members from attending worship. Church members also found the church’s door being sealed off a day prior without proper procedure or documentation.
