Shibu ThomasThe International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) was marked in Ireland on Sunday 7 November. Churches all over the country devoted time during their services on that day to pray for the Persecuted Church. If you didn’t get a chance to mark IDOP, you can still do so on a different Sunday in November. See below what resources we have available and if in doubt contact us by email:

The focus this year will be on India, where persecution of Christians is on the rise as Hindu militants harass and attack Christians – especially those living in rural villages.

Will you join us in praying for our brothers and sisters in India?
