52 seekers converted to Christianity in a themed gospel meeting held in Xiasha Panshi (Rock) Church in Hangzhou on the evening of June 11.
The Panshi (Rock) Church was completed in 2012 and it reflects modern elements thanks to the use of aluminum alloy used to shape a rock which ornates the church. Its main hall can hold more than 2000 people all at once and it is allotted with a seven-storey comprehensive building for other activities of believers for faith and worship practices.
For the June 11 celebration, it consisted of several parts including worship and praise with delivering the message of God and group sharing.
Earlier in the year, 69 seekers followed Jesus in the church's meeting in Easter.
