On Nov. 9, 2016, Wuxi Christian Church hosted a special worship service to help disabled and aid poor people in the church's chapel. More than 300 congregants gathered there, about forty of which were specially invited by the church. Most of them were disabled with certificates, or from destitute households.
According to the WeChat of Wuxi Christian Church, Pastor Zhang Peifu shared a themed message, "Give you Better" encouraging the disabled and poor to be courageous and embark on life's journey. The church prepared and blessed a meal for them, and gave them gifts along with an elaborate arrangement of shows.
It was learned that over the years Wuxi Church has had a visitation ministry to these groups at the end of each year. This year as Christmas approaches, the church invited them to share in the amazing fellowship in God to feel the many forms of the church's love.
