World Watch List 2021

The countries where following Jesus costs the most

You’ll be able to see the new Open Doors World Watch List on 19 January 2022 – ranking the countries where Christians face the most extreme persecution. Every year, the World Watch List is compiled using comprehensive research, interviews and analysis. It means you can pray for and support persecuted believers with the information you need to be fully informed.

You can join a special World Watch List webinar at 8.15pm on 19 January to get the latest updates and pray for your persecuted church family.
