Could you raise awareness and support in your church?


Church Representatives play a key role in raising the voice of persecuted Christians and calling UK Christians into fellowship with them.

Here are some of the ways they do that:

  • Promoting and encouraging prayer for persecuted Christians;
  • Promoting our free quarterly magazine, Voice;
  • Inviting people to sign up to receive our information by post and email;
  • Promoting the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP);
  • Inviting a Release International speaker to speak in your church.

You may decide how best to fulfil the role of Church Representative, as every congregation is different. Our Church Representative application form has a more comprehensive list of activities.

Our Church Representatives should have the support of their church, so we require a positive reference from a church leader. Church Representatives remain accountable to their church and will abide by any of its policies and procedures.

We value our volunteers and will commit to pray for you on a regular basis. We send any resources you need, free of charge, and will let you know what other people have found effective. We will also provide you with volunteering information, our Volunteers’ Handbook and a quarterly newsletter. We will provide you with appropriate training, on-going support and will reimburse any agreed expenses you incur. We can also publicise any initiatives which are open to people from other churches in your area.

So how do you become a Church Representative?

You must be aged 18 or above;
You must agree with our Faith and Policy statements and our Volunteer Charter.

Just email us here and we will send you more information. Once we have a positive reference from your church leader we will arrange an online video call with you.
