Standing Strong

Come and meet the risk-takers of the persecuted church!

“It tugs at your heartstrings when you hear the stories of persecution, but at the same time, it’s so encouraging when you hear that God is mightily at work. It’s opened up a whole different world to us. It fuels our prayers.” - Supporter who attended Standing Strong in 2023

Would you like to deepen your relationship with your persecuted family and be strengthened in your faith? Would you like to be encouraged at the immeasurable difference your prayers and support are making worldwide?

This year, Standing Strong is again coming to a region near you, and we’d love for you to join us as we gather across the UK and Ireland to celebrate what God is doing in some of the most dangerous places in the world to be a Christian.

This is a precious and unique opportunity to meet your persecuted family and hear their stories, ask them questions and pray for them. There will be space for worship and you’ll also get to sample what life is like for millions of believers worldwide. It’s an experience not to miss!
