“It tugs at your heartstrings when you hear the stories of persecution, but at the same time, it’s so encouraging when you hear that God is mightily at work. It’s opened up a whole different world to us. It fuels our prayers.” Supporter who attended Standing Strong in 2023

This year, Standing Strong is again coming to a region near you, and we’d love for you to join us as we gather across the UK and Ireland to celebrate what God is doing in some of the most dangerous places in the world to be a Christian.

This is a precious and unique opportunity to meet your persecuted family and hear their stories, ask them questions and pray with them. There will be space for worship and you’ll also get to sample what life is like for millions of believers worldwide. It’s an experience not to miss! Book your tickets below now.

£10 for a day event
