Algeria (International Christian Concern) – The seventeenth church affiliated with the EPA, the umbrella for the Algerian Protestant Church, was informed of its closure earlier this month. The church of Aouchiche was notified on April 6 that a March 21 administrative order issued by the governor ceased all worship and closure of the building.
More than 300 active congregants attended the church. Since November 2017, 17 churches have been closed by the Algerian government along with 12 Christians convicted of faith-related charges according to Middle East Concern. International Christian Concern’s (ICC) report on Algeria details the closures of churches over the past several years.
HOW TO PRAY: Pray for the members of this church to remain strong in their faith. Pray for equal freedom for Christians in Algeria. Pray for provision for congregations that have had their buildings closed.
