Chinese “House” Church Seeks To Sue Government

From Reuters:

A “house” church in China is seeking to sue a local religious affairs authority for shutting down a service in what activists called a breakthrough challenge.

The Qiyu Blessings Church in the southwest province of Sichuan is one of thousands of once-banned self-organised Christian groups the ruling Communist Party warily tolerates as it encourages believers to join larger state-sanctioned churches.

The church leader now wants to take the Shuangliu County Bureau of Religious Affairs to court for stopping a service in early May, the New York-based group Human Rights in China reported in an email on Friday.
