Lockdown Church 2021
How are you persevering under lockdown?
Back in March 2020 not many of us could have predicted that one year later we would still be in lockdown. Throughout that time our ability to meet together as God’s people has been restricted in varying ways which has presented huge challenges and caused frustration.
Release International’s original Lockdown Church resources were developed to pick up on the connection between our new experience of facing restrictions and the common everyday experience of persecuted Christians. It was a chance for us to both identify and learn from them.
In that regard nothing has changed. In fact, in our prolonged experience of lockdown we have an even greater opportunity to identify – especially with those of our brothers and sisters who bear the weight of sustained, systemic restrictions because of their faith. Together with them we are learning more about endurance, steadfastness, and hope.
Lockdown Church 2021 is a brand-new set of weekly updated resources focusing on the theme of oppression. Scroll down the page to the menus below to find Frontline reports from our international partners, short Bible reflections, interactive activities, songs and prayers, all designed to help you worship, reflect and identify with our persecuted Christian family during this prolonged period of lockdown. You can use these resources individually, share them with your friends, or use them in your online home group or church services.
Praise God that His church lives and thrives under lockdown.
