Police stop lockdown-busting service at London church

Police have prevented an evangelical pastor holding a church service in defiance of lockdown restrictions.

About 30 worshippers had gathered at the Angel church in north London on Sunday for a service including a baptism after pastor Regan King said Christians served “a greater law”.

Four Metropolitan police officers prevented people entering the building in Clerkenwell, and two police vans and a police car were parked outside. Officers allowed 15 people to remain inside the church, while another 15 took part in a socially distanced outdoor service nearby.

Under current restrictions, communal services are banned although places of worship may remain open for individual prayer and streaming of worship, and small funerals are permitted. They are also permitted to run social action projects, such as food banks.
