New Life Evangelical Church


The long-standing battle of Belarusian authorities with New Life churchgoers was in the spotlight of media attention. The authorities tried to confiscate the building of New Life Evangelical Church. After the land, on which the building was situated, became part of the city, Minsk City Council revoked the decision on emphyteusis and the permission for the reconstruction of the building for the purpose of worship. The battle lasted for seven years: the churchgoers went for numerous hunger strikes, barricaded themselves inside the building and prevented the officials from entering the church's premises. Eventually, the church won the legal battle and Minsk City Court closed the case.
