Church future is not Zoom

Six leaders of the Early Rain Covenant Church were removed from their homes and detained by Chinese authorities whilst watching an online service on Easter Sunday. Taking place via Zoom, it was interrupted as police raided members’ homes. Someone watching the service said: ‘I thought it was the network connection issue at first, but I soon heard a quarrel erupt.’

The electricity was disconnected in one of the homes and others received phone calls warning them that the police were coming. All six leaders were later released.
