A group of people from across the churches in Market Drayton meet together on a monthly basis to pray for persecuted Christians around the world. If you are motivated to support our suffering brothers and sisters you would be very welcome to join us. At each session we usually focus on one or two countries where persecution is occurring. Through videos and information accessed via the internet we try to understand more of the opportunities and difficulties encountered by members of His Church who are suffering because they identify themselves as believers in Jesus Christ.
We meet normally on a Thursday evening, but in November we meet on the Saturday before the International Day of Prayer for Persecuted Christians.
Thursday 10 May 2018
Venue: Wollerton URC School Room, Wood Lane, Wollerton, TF9 3NY.
Future dates: 14 Jun, 12 Jul, 9 Aug, 13 Sep & 11 Oct

Notes from previous meeting are also available from this page.
This video by International Christian Concern highlights the many forms Christian persecution can take around the world to bring greater understanding to what our Brothers and Sisters face everyday. Please watch and pray.
Egypt: The woman who lost half
her face in 2016 Cairo church attack
Samiha is a remarkable lady. It’s been just over a year since the day when a man ran into the women’s section of Cairo’s St Peter’s Coptic Orthodox Church and detonated the bomb strapped to his chest.
Wake up to extreme persecution
There are a number of Christian ministries with bases in Britain which seek to support persecuted believers in many different countries. We draw on information and resources from them all for our prayer times. To visit their websites, please click on the logos below. (Persecution.org and China Aid do not to have offices in the UK.)
