Chinese megachurch demolished, pastors detained

CHINA AID – Authorities destroyed a church in China and detained its pastors over the weekend.

No legal papers ordering the church’s demolition were provided, but the officials tore it down on Friday. It could seat more than 3,000 people and was part of the country’s officially-recognized church network.

It was mid-worship service when the destruction took place.
