Kazakhstan – Places of Worship Monitored and Fined

Since the beginning of 2021, about 20 cases have been taken to court for holding religious meetings without state permission and made to pay fines equivalent to between three weeks’ to four months’ average wages.

Places of worship are being closely monitored to determine if any laws have been contravened. A Baptist church in the city of Oral, which was previously fined, is regularly being visited by an official who sits at the back of the sanctuary to monitor the church’s services and write down the names of those present.

Pray for wisdom and discernment as church leaders and congregation members seek ways to meet the needs of their communities in spite of the many restrictions. Pray that they will find innovative ways to effectively reach out to those around them with the message of God’s peace in these unprecedented times. May the Lord speak clearly into the hearts of the officials monitoring the church services, working by His Holy Spirit in and through their lives so that His great Kingdom purposes will ultimately be fulfilled.
