How are you doing church under lockdown?
In the past few weeks our movements have been severely restricted due to Covid-19. This is a very new experience for us but for persecuted Christians around the world these kinds of restrictions are not unusual. They often have their buildings closed, are prevented from meeting together, and some are forced to spend time in isolation. However, in those circumstances they have learned to keep going and even to thrive. They have lots of practice at doing church under lockdown.
It has been amazing to see how churches and prayer groups across the world have adapted creatively to our own current restrictions and have continued to ‘meet together’ through live streaming, video calling apps and social media sharing. These restrictions are set to continue for some time and perhaps now more than ever, we can identify with the daily experiences of persecuted Christians. Perhaps also, now more than ever, we need their wisdom and example to help us.
In response, Release International has created a new Lockdown Church resource. Scroll down the page to the menus below to find Bible talks, short films, interactive activities, songs and prayers, all designed to help you worship, reflect and identify with our persecuted family during this period of lockdown. You can use these resources individually or include them in your online home group or church service.
Praise God that His church lives and thrives under lockdown. Welcome to Lockdown Church.
