Serving Persecuted Christians Worldwide - Partner Videos - Open Doors UK & Ireland


In March 2020 when most of us were socially isolating due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Partnerships team launched a webinar series called Connect. The series was designed to connect you, our donor-partners, directly with the Open Doors team and our persecuted church-partners.

Our hope with the series is to make sure you feel connected to the ministry that you support and care for, that you receive a blessing, and that you feel appreciated.
