Violent Christian Persecution in Nigeria

Serving Christ and the gospel in a hostile nation




Christians continue to suffer violent attack and slaughter in northern Nigeria, at the hands of radical Islamists. Join us to hear inspiring stories of responding to persecution with the gospel of God’s grace.

Rev Hassan John

We are delighted to confirm that our partner in Nigeria, the Rev Hassan John will be joining us for a speaker tour in early November 2020. These events will be held as ticket-only online events via Zoom conferencing, and will be livestreamed to our social media channels Facebook and YouTube for one day on Thursday November 5th. We are still praying that Hassan may be able to fly over to see us in person, if the Lockdown regulations permit, but that is looking unlikely. The confirmed dates for your diary are as follows:

7.30pm Monday 2nd November – Supporters in Wales
7.30pm Tuesday 3rd November – Supporters in Scotland
7.30pm Wednesday 4th November – Supporters in England
7.30pm Thursday 5th November – Supporters in Northern Ireland PLUS Facebook and YouTube (public livestreaming)

Each event will start at 7.30pm and end at 8.30pm.

Please note, if you are busy on the night for your region, and wish to book on any of the dates, you are welcome to do so, subject to availability. We will be managing bookings for these events on Eventbrite. There will be no charge for the tickets, but donations are very welcome. The final links to the Zoom joining instructions will be issued on 30th October to all delegates who have registered.

Hassan John is a Nigerian-born journalist, community development worker and Anglican minister. In 2014 he broke the news of the abduction of 276 girls by the Islamist group Boko Haram in Chibok.

In north-east Nigeria he has worked among those displaced by violence, assisting vulnerable children to receive an education and enabling young men and women to become active members of their local communities.

He trains pastors in Christian apologetics, addressing the difficult questions of suffering. He also spearheads the re-training of pastors and church workers to share the gospel in areas dominated by radical Islamists.

Hassan is married with four children.
