Suffering Church Action and Awareness Week 2020


Sunday 1 – Sunday 8 November

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, ... “plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

Be a part of Suffering Church Action and Awareness Week as we stand with our suffering family in looking to our bright hope in Christ amid present global crises.

2020, adding immeasurably to the suffering of persecuted Christians. Before these disasters, so many of our brothers and sisters were already marginalised, violently attacked, kidnapped, raped and even killed simply because they are Christians.

Hope in Suffering focuses on the wonderful resilience of the persecuted Church. Through our suffering family, be inspired to find strength today in the face of pressures and struggles, as we look to the bright hope Jesus promises us for tomorrow. Join with us to lift up our persecuted brothers and sisters in prayer, take practical action to help them, as well as raise awareness of their plight.

Remember to put SCAAW into your church’s diary. You can make a difference to the lives of millions of our persecuted family. You can pray, raise funds, and inform others about the persecution of Christians by holding an event at your church or group. If live events and meetings remain restricted due to coronavirus, you can hold your event by webinar, video meetings using “Zoom” or livestreaming.
