You are invited to meet your extraordinary family from North Korea, Egypt and India

Spaces are limited for this very special event so book today to avoid disappointment.

Book before 1 August and save £5 per ticket.

Join us for our second annual Standing Strong event in November 2018. We are delighted to announce that this year we will be joined by persecuted Christians from North Korea, Egypt and India, who will share their stories with us. Come and worship and pray alongside your UK & Ireland church family as we learn together how God is building His church in some of the most dangerous countries to be a Christian.

This year we are very excited to be offering a fun-filled children’s programme at our Birmingham event. Children (aged 5-11 years) will learn through age-appropriate material about Brother Andrew’s adventures, the persecuted church, and what it’s like to be a secret believer.
