Greetings! We are China Christian Daily, the first comprehensive English Christian news website about the church in China. Thank you for your sincere love, prayer for, and contributions to the Chinese church.

As the year 2020 comes to a close, it's a traditional season for Christians in China and the rest of the word to gather together to inspire faith, discuss strategies, and get started for the next year.

Most of the gatherings are about faith, ministries, and evangelism.
