WELCOME TO OPEN DOORS
Open Doors supports persecuted Christians with Bibles, Christian materials, training, livelihood skills, advocacy - and in a whole host of other ways - so that they know they are not forgotten and can stand strong to serve their communities. So that they can give life.
We also seek to mobilise the church in the UK & Ireland not only to serve Christians living under religious persecution but also to learn from them what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.
How we help
We help Christians in over 50 countries, from training leaders to raising awareness about global persecution.
Open Doors originated sixty years ago, in 1955, when a young Dutchman started smuggling Bibles to the persecuted church in Communist Europe. He became known as Brother Andrew, and his work led to sixty years of support for the persecuted church
Speaking out in Advocacy
The UK Advocacy team takes every opportunity to highlight the persecution of Christians in over 50 countries worldwide - and on almost every continent. In 2016 Open Doors launched three parliamentary reports and a global seven-year campaign. The World Watch List 2016 report launch was attended by over 100 MPs - more than ever before.
It's the gifts of thousands of supporters that makes this work possible. Here's how we spent your money in 2016.
