Tortured For Christ – The film: NOW SHOWING THROUGHOUT THE UK


Fourteen years in communist prisons could not break his faith!

In Autumn 2017 Release started to show a new 70-minute film produced by Voice of the Martyrs USA, which depicts Richard Wurmbrand’s best-selling testimony Tortured for Christ.

Filmed entirely in Romania, this is a powerful depiction of the man who inspired the founding of Release in 1968, as well as a family of missions around the world.



Don’t miss this significant opportunity to engage afresh with Richard’s passionate vision to serve persecuted Christians.


Tortured for Christ: the film has been shown at selected churches in the UK and Ireland.

Please phone our Office on 01689 823491 if you would like more information on how your church or church hall could also become a venue.

In the meantime you can watch the trailer above.

PLEASE NOTE: We recommend parents/carers consider the content of this film before showing it to children.
