Prayer for Persecuted Christians

Please note: during the current concerns about COVID-19 these meetings will not be taking place.

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 afternoon of the third Wednesday in each month.

Dates below are for provisional and at this stage for information only until the COVID-19 “All Clear” is sounded.

Provisional meeting dates: Apr 15, May 20, June 17, July 15 & Aug 19.

Normal venue: Market Drayton Methodist Church Lounge, Shrewsbury Road, TF9 3DL

Archives of the notes from our previous 6 meeting are also available from this page.

Asis Bibi Updates

Available here.

On 8 May 2019 it was announced that Asia Bibi had been allowed to leave Pakistan, and it is thought that she had gone to Canada to join two of her daughters. More recently she has published a book with the help of a French journalist who has supported her for many years.


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.)
