Take Action



If the world hates you…

Saturday 15th February | 3.00pm

Time: 3pm – 5pm

Location: St Mary’s Church, Church Road, ALMONDSBURY,

Gloucestershire, BS32 4DT

Join us at St Mary’s Church in Almondsbury for an afternoon meeting looking at what the Bible teaches about persecution and what this looks like for Christians across the world today.

We will look together at some Bible passages to help inform our understanding, and then have a tour around some of the countries today where Christians suffer persecution.

The sessions will be led by Paul Thomas, Release International Development Manager for Wales and the West Midlands.

Paul regularly spends time visiting Christians in Egypt, and has also travelled to Nigeria to spend time with Christians who have suffered attacks in recent years.

He will share from his personal experience and also highlight some of the hot-spots for persecution today and how Release and its partners are seeking to respond.

There will be an opportunity during the sessions for questions and also to chat to Paul afterwards.
