But four cops on the door stopped them breaching lockdown by entering.

Lead pastor Regan King, 28, said he wanted to hold it in defiance of the curbs because “we serve a greater good”.

Mr King told: "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."

When asked about his reasoning for breaching the restrictions, he said: "Because I believe we serve a greater good.

"We have a greater good than whatever this is."

"This is not something I ever wanted.

"This is an essential service that we provide.

"It's about loving our neighbour, and you can talk with a number of people here who are extremely vulnerable, homeless or on the verge of being very isolated."
