GREAT OUTDOOR CHURCH SERVICE
Be an Outdoor Prayer Warrior!
Is your church taking to the great outdoors this year to stand in solidarity with persecuted Christians?
On Sunday, May 27*, churches in the UK are invited to hold their services in the open air to pray for our brothers and sisters around the world who have been deprived of their meeting places or can only get together as believers in secret.
Will you be part of this prayer event for the persecuted?
Churches that have previously taken part in Release’s Great Outdoors Church Service have told us how meeting outside has given them a taste of what it is like for believers who do not have the comfort or security of meeting in a building, while also being a great witness to their local communities.
We’d love to know how you get on this year so please do send us your feedback and any photos you take. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Release CEO Paul Robinson said: ‘Please do encourage your church to take part. This is a really great opportunity to be prayer warriors for the persecuted.’
*Feel free to choose another date if that is more convenient.
BE INSPIRED BY TWO OUTSTANDING PARTNERS
Two more high-profile partners of Release will be speaking at churches in the UK during 2018. This is a great opportunity to be both informed and inspired.
Christian aid worker Petr Jasek was accused of spying and imprisoned in Sudan for 445 days, before being released in February 2017. He was a founder member of the Czech Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) ministry, and today works for VOM (USA). He is also the Ambassador for the International Christian Association, of which Release is a member. He will be sharing his experience at various venues around the UK from June 30th to July 8th.

The Rt Rev Dr Ben Kwashi is well-known for faithfully serving persecuted Christians in Plateau State, central Nigeria. You can hear Ben, a powerful speaker, at various UK venues between November 20th to 27th (to be confirmed).
