Take Action




You are invited to meet those who dare to follow Jesus no matter the cost.

Release International Worship Weekend is a celebration of all that God is doing in and through the church around the world.

This is a unique opportunity to hear about how Christians are courageously following Jesus, despite the dark and dangerous reality of persecution they face. Come and discover how we can stand in solidarity with those who face persecution for the sake for the gospel.

Release International Worship Weekend will empower us as Christians to become aware of persecution, speak out against it and learn lessons of discipleship. We hope to help you to grow in your understanding of both the beauty and the cost of following Jesus and explain what this can look like in other countries, and for us, here in the UK.

At Release International Worship Weekend join with others in worship, prayer and be inspired by the powerful testimonies and stories. You will learn more about the dangers, risks and joys that being faithful to Jesus brings and the work Release is doing to support those whose faith costs them the most. Find out how you can support your persecuted family.

This is an event not to be missed! Come and be inspired by the courageous faith of others and encouraged in your own faith.

Join us on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd February @ St John and St Peter’s Church, Ladywood in Birmingham.
