Several churches have been closed by authorities in recent months, resulting in calls to the government for equal treatment for Protestant Christians. Places of worship for non-Muslims are required to be built for the purpose of worship only, but they require approval. Requests for approval have generally been ignored, resulting in many churches meeting in rented homes or apartments. The authorities have been closing these churches under the guise of safety concerns. Individual Christians and pastors have also faced harassment and fines for proselytising. Pray for Christians in Algeria. May God speak to the hearts of the government officials so that necessary approval will be given, allowing these believers to practise their faith in freedom and peace.
