Christians around the world are being persecuted because of their faith. Will you show your support for the Suffering Church?
Aid to the Church in Need are being joined by Christian Solidarity Worldwide for this campaign, but we need your help. Join us on Wednesday 28th November – #RedWednesday, and stand in solidarity with persecuted Christians and faith minorities who suffer unjustly for their peacefully-held beliefs.
Let’s spread the word and use social media to make #RedWednesday 2018 a campaign that cannot be ignored.
By joining us in prayer, by wearing red, lighting your church red, by organising red-themed activities or attending #RedWednesday events, you will be doing something peaceful and positive to highlight the suffering – injustices, discrimination, violence, oppression, torture and death – of so many Christians and others today which goes largely unnoticed by the world.
On the day
You are invited to join in on Wednesday 28th November in London, for the main #RedWednesday event.
There is no entry cost for this event and it will be ACN, joined by our #RedWednesday partner CSW, benefactors and clergy uniting together to Make A Stand for Faith and Freedom.
