Lockdown Church 2021
Back in March 2020 not many of us could have predicted that lockdown due to COVID-19 would last as long as it did. During those unprecedented times we produced a series of resources – Lockdown Church 2020 and Lockdown Church 2021 – to help us worship at home or in small groups online. Now we are through the pandemic and back meeting together in worship on a Sunday. Rather than remove these resources we thought we would leave them here so that they remain available to you for private worship, prayer groups, home groups or in Sunday services. The Lockdown Church 2021 resources are available below. The Lockdown Church 2020 resources are available here.
How are you persevering under lockdown?
Welcome to the resources of Lockdown Church 2021.
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.
