Pastor Tim Stephens to Spend at Least Two Weeks in Jail After Underground Church Discovered

Pastor Tim Stephens, who was arrested by police on Monday in front of his weeping wife and children a day after his underground church service was discovered by police helicopters, will have to spend at least 2 weeks in prison on account of violating Alberta lockdown orders, incarcerated until he can attend a June 24 court date.

This is the second arrest for Stephens, who was taken into custody last month and spent three days in jail, and was subsequently released after his arrest was found to be based on illegal and spurious merits.

In a letter posted on social media by his wife Raquel, she explains that the government has now seized Fairview Baptist Church’s building and pastor and that Alberta Health services “still want Tim to tell people what to wear, where to stand, and to forbid some people from being the church,”

Following his arrest, Pastor Stephens went before a Justice of the Peace and like Pastor James Coates, who was jailed on the same grounds and whose location has yet to be discovered, was offered bail conditions “upon his agreement to abide by all public health orders.” She explains that he could not agree to those terms, as that would “prevent him from faithfully shepherding the flock to his care” and consequently will remain in custody until at least June 28.

According to Calgary Police, though Stephens was served with an injunction to cease gathering, he chose to “move forward with an illegal outdoor service, ignoring requirements for social distancing and reduced capacity limits for attendees.”

In a statement by the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, the firm who is representing pastor Stephens, Jay Cameron, Justice Centre Litigation Director explains that the arrest is completely outrageous:

It is our position that AHS is engaged in an intentional act of public deception and abuse of authority in arresting Pastor Stephens and others.  Further, it appears that Premier Kenney’s Government is targeting its enemies, those who are speaking out against lockdown restrictions and for Charter freedoms.

  1. This is just insane. Why is Canada still on lockdown anyway? All that Covid has shown is that the government doesn’t care about its people. All they want is control and power. And it’s pretty scary that the populace was so eager to just lay down and let them take it.

    1. John,

      You must look behind the curtain to see who was behind all of it. Look at Trudeau. Look at the recent G7 summit where Biden was welcomed as “one of the team.” Some people call the globalist cabal just some far fetched conspiracy theory. Sadly, it is not. It is very real. Why do you think the Wuhan virus began to get attention in January 2020? What wasn’t working against President Trump in January 2020 when this began to pick up steam? As Judge Judy says, nothing in life is THAT coincidental.
