On March 20, 2015 in Thiruvarur, a Church was set on fire resulting into damage in property. The arson attack took place at the esus Loves Prayer House at 11:30 pm. Two days before the incident, fundamentalists had objected to the repairs that the Church was undertaking and had threatened the Pastor. The Police then intervened to ensure that the repair work was not obstructed and that it continued. An FIR has been filed at the Peralam police station post the incident.
