Pastor who broke England’s lockdown worship rules has baptism service shut down by Met police

Police officers have stopped an evangelical church from holding a baptism service in breach of the national coronavirus lockdown restrictions.

About 30 worshippers had gathered at The Angel Church in north London on Sunday before the Metropolitan Police halted the service.

Lead pastor Regan King, 28, said he wanted to hold the baptism in defiance of the restrictions because he “served a greater good”.

Two police vans and a police car were parked outside the church’s Mount Zion Hall building in Clerkenwell, while around four officers stood at the entrance to stop people from entering.

Mr King told the PA news agency: “We were told not to have a baptism and police began to block people from entering the church, so we decided to make other arrangements.

“There were 20 people here initially and it built up to about 30.”
