Two churches in Beijing and Shanxi resumed in-person services on December 5.
On its official WeChat account on December 2, Yaodu District Church in Linfen, Shanxi, announced the continuation of its face-to-face gatherings from December 5, when a baptism and communion service and a thanksgiving service was held for the reopening. Believers were reminded to get admission passes during the following two days.
The next day, Beijing Chongwenmen Church released an announcement, stating that it would restart five services on the coming Sunday with the timing unchanged and that churchgoers should book their places via WeChat with their real names.
