A campaign to crack down on house churches in Beijing has intensified since Christmas, according to a monitor of the Chinese church.
Among the churches targeted was a well-known congregation in Beijing raided by Public Security Bureau agents the past two Sundays, according to U.S.-based China Aid Association.
