Prayer for the Persecuted Church

Would you like your church to pray for persecuted Christians once each year?

Ask your church to sign up for an Open Doors Service this year. You can select any date and use Open Doors resources to put on the kind of service that best suits your church.

You do not necessarily need to give any money to Open Doors. For details see go to Open Doors Australia and click on Get Involved at the top. On the menu, select Open Doors Sunday. Or you can contact Elly Lloyd 0487 370 652, ellyh@od.org.au
