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

Chinese churches got together to celebrate Easter in-person again, after last year's was pushed online due to pandemic-related shutdowns. For some area congregations, this Easter was the first on-site service they had been able to hold since the suspension of in-person gatherings in early 2021. Many churches hosted music worship, Communion services, and baptisms to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus.
