Prayer for Persecuted Christians

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 normally meet on the second Thursday evening of the month, but in November we meet on the Saturday before the International Day of Prayer for Persecuted Christians (normally the third Sunday of November in the UK).
