Wang Yi in prison The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) will be marked in Ireland on Sunday 6 November. Churches all over the country will devote time during their services on that day to pray for the Persecuted Church. The focus this year will be on China where the Communist Party is putting strong pressure on the church and persecution of Christians is increasing day by day.

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

Please ask your church leader to make time in the worship service on Sunday 6 November (if date not suitable, choose another Sunday in November) .
