On January 12, 2020, Zhangzhou Beimen Church of China's southeastern Fujian Province held a spring cleaning.

More than 70 people joined in the cleaning activity. The participants held brooms and scrubbing tools to sweep the floor, clear the rubbish, rinse the windows, doors, tables, and chairs. Some were in charge of the bathrooms, while others cleaned the neglected corners of public hygiene within the church's green belt.

Started in 2004, Beimen Church, the largest in Zhangzhou, was completed in September 2010 and dedicated in October 2017. With a floor area of 10,594 square meters (2.6 acres), the church can hold 5,000 worshippers.

The facade of the church's main body is in the shape of the Chinese character "ren" (or "people" in English), showing that men need to seek God and salvation on the cross. The building resembles a crown from above, reminding people that "life is limited while the crown lasts forever."
