Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill has performed a service in Beijing during his first-ever visit to neighboring China.
The service was performed on May 12 amid tight security in a tent on the grounds of the Russian Embassy with some 300 people in attendance.
On May 10, Kirill met with Chinese President Xi Jinping, and the next day he toured the Great Wall of China and the Forbidden City in Beijing.
During the remaining three days of his visit, Kirill plans to meet with Orthodox believers in Harbin and Shanghai.

Since you are here…
…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website.
However, resources for editorial are scarce.
In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription.
It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.
Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service,
weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers.
Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -
Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.
For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little?
A cup of coffee?
It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.
If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month,
they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ,
Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
