Outdoor prayer warriors!
Is your church taking to the great outdoors this year to stand in solidarity with persecuted Christians?
On Sunday, May 25*, 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.
This year we celebrate 50 years of helping persecuted Christians around the world!
You could use your Great Outdoor Church Event to raise awareness of our 50th Anniversary Year and our Pray for the Persecutors campaign or plan to hear one of our special guest speakers who will be on-tour within churches in the UK and Ireland during 2018.
IN OUR FIFTIETH YEAR, PASTOR RICHARD WURMBRAND’S PASSIONATE PLEA CONTINUES TO INSPIRE OUR MINISTRY TO SERVE CHRISTIANS AROUND THE WORLD.
DON’T ABANDON THEM!
We hope the short video below will inspire you as you continue to pray for and support our persecuted family.
