You’re invited to meet those who dare to follow Jesus no matter the cost.

Standing Strong is a celebration of all that God is doing in and through His church around the world, thanks to your prayers and support. This is a unique opportunity to hear speakers from Asia and the Middle East about how Christians in those countries are courageously following Jesus, despite the dark and dangerous reality of persecution they face.

At Standing Strong, join with hundreds of others in worship and prayer and find out how you can support your persecuted family. Learn more about the dangers, risks and joys that being faithful to Jesus brings and the work Open Doors is doing to support those whose faith costs them the most.

Church Leader Gatherings EnglaNd & Wales - march

Featuring Mojtaba, a pastor who was imprisoned for his faith in Iran.

In view of the Coronavirus developments, we have decided that the most responsible course of action is to cancel the church leader events that were due to take place at Creech St Micheal Baptist Church, Taunton on Wednesday 18 March and Westminster Chapel, London on Thursday 19 March. We are instead hoping to livestream an event from our office to provide you with the opportunity to hear from our speaker Mojtaba! We are working hard to make this happen and will communicate the details around that next week.

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.

If you have any further questions, please contact our Inspire team on +44 (0)1993 460015
