Meet your persecuted church family from India and the Middle East!
Saturday 25 September, 8pm
You are invited to join us for our big annual event this September: an amazing evening of worship, prayer and stories of courageous faith and hope as we celebrate Standing Strong Live online!
We will be joined by Taher* and his family from the Middle East and Father Araam from Iraq and Sister Reena* from India as they share how God is at work in the midst of difficult and dangerous circumstances – and how your prayers and support are keeping the church alive.
Our theme this year is 'together', and while we won’t be gathering as one body, we can still come together to watch, pray and, worship as family, friends, churches and small groups. This is a freedom that millions of our persecuted family do not have, and so we will stand with them in solidarity, that, as Christ’s body, ‘we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith' (Romans 1:12).
And this year, for the first time ever, young people and youth leaders will also be able to attend their own special Standing Strong Live event – Standing Strong: Brave Faith – and get inspired by the courage and perseverance of the persecuted church.
Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to hear first-hand stories of the hope we all share in Christ from our persecuted church family.
