Churches Ordered To Close

The 2nd largest church in Algeria, Spring Life Church in Makouda, with about 700 members was ordered in October 2019 to close, along with 2 other churches.

According to an ordinance enacted in 2006 permission must be obtained before using a building for Christian worship. But when churches fail to receive any response to their application for permission, it became common practice to rent a building first and later inform that it is being used as a place of Christian worship. Since November 2017, several churches have been forced to close, including the Full Gospel of Tizi-Ouzou church which is the largest Protestant church in Algeria.

Pray for the church leaders represented by Algeria’s various denominational groups as they seek to wisely address these mounting challenges and determine how to carry on with the work of the Gospel. Pray that God will make a way for the churches to continue with ministry.
