Some churches in China’s coastal Zhejiang province have been ordered to handover all of their income to the government, says a non-profit Christian human rights organization.
Churches in Pingyang County, Wenzhou have been informed of new requirements stating they need to hand over their money, including donations, stated Washington D.C.-based China Aid in a report.
The order is part of the government’s so-called “five transformations” campaign which is being carried out to “mold Christianity into an institution that reflects the objectives of the Communist Party,” added the report.
The report did not specify what churches have been informed of the new regulations or what denomination they were.
