“By your endurance you will gain your souls” Luke 21:19

These words bring huge comfort and hope to our poor and persecuted brothers and sisters whose suffering has increased immeasurably because of the conflict, famine and disease that are escalating around the world. Because of their faith, many Christians are marginalised, discriminated against, attacked or even killed.

Suffering Church Action and Awareness Week is an opportunity for us to stand alongside our suffering Church family, to make known their situation and demonstrate Christ’s love to them in prayer and practical action.
