Christian search terms (such as “Bible” and “Gospel”) seem to have been blocked and Christian accounts deleted on popular Chinese social media platform WeChat. Users have also noticed they can’t upload Christian videos or music.

Kurt Rovenstine of Bibles for China says these restrictions fall in line with others changes by the Chinese government. “There’s been changes, from no foreigners being present, to even restrictions on gatherings. And then COVID-19 hit, and there was this mass exodus from churches for the sake of the health and well-being of the Church. We saw the creativity of the Church to be able to meet by way of social media, online services, etc. And now, it seems as if that’s being restricted.”
