Since 2006, the Tinghu district Chengnan Three-Self Patriotic Movement Church in the city of Yancheng, coastal Jiangsu province, has been in a long-running dispute with the government because they were being threatened with eviction. On June 6, 2010, Yancheng law enforcement personnel disrupted a Sunday worship service and illegally beat up believers. That same month, the authorities handed down an eviction notice. On June 13, the director of the

Chinese House Church Alliance, Pastor Zhang Mingxuan, and his wife were on their way to visit the Chengnan church when they were intercepted by police and put under house arrest for two days before being released. On the afternoon of Friday Nov. 19, the church building was forcibly demolished, reduced to nothing but flat ground.
