A new church was dedicated in Nan County, Hunan, on October 24, 2017, with over 900 people in attendance.
Bai Xia, the leader of Guangjiao Church, said in the construction report that the former century-old church had become dilapidated, so a new church was constructed at a cost of more than 90,000 yuan. It covers 528 square meters (0.13 acres) with a floor space of 396 square meters (0.098 acres).
Rev. Xiao Guochang, chairman of the Nan County TSPM presided over the dedication service. Rev. Yi Jianhui, chairman of the Yiyang TSPM delivered a sermon titled "Rebuild A Glorious Church", exhorting the congregation to love God's house and revive it.
