This weekend, from 9pm Friday to 9pm Sunday I won’t be on Twitter – at all! In fact I won’t be blogging, watching films, surfing the internet or even playing Angry birds!!


I’ll be joining Open Doors as they BLACKOUT.

Eh? What’s BLACKOUT?

Glad you asked – find out more here.

So this weekend, rather than spending time tweeting, sharing and connecting online, I intend to express solidarity, raise support and spend time praying for The Secret Children.

Who are the Secret Children?

Glad you asked! Allow me to introduce them…

Truth is we forget about our suffering brothers and sisters too easily. If you injure part of your body the rest of your body will feel it acutely. Therefore as Christians a day shouldn’t pass without us being deeply aware that parts of our body are suffering.

Can I encourage you to join me as I BLACKOUT for the sake of the persecuted church.

Furthermore if you live in South Wales why not join us 7pm on Sunday Evening at Cold Barn Farm in Trevethin. We are hosting a worship evening but will also be spending some time in BLACKOUT as we pray for persecuted brothers and sisters, not least the Secret Children.

"if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it" (1Corinthians 12:26)

  1. Christian have been persecuted throughout time.A documentary about a rev who claims God does not exist.In an interview with the BBC religious affairs correspondent Mr Robert Pigott, the Rev Klasss Hendrikse of the exodus church in Holland makes this claim, and that the bible account of Jesus is like a mythological story about a man who may never has existed, he remains in his job as it said many people have similar views.Like to interview,..
    How can i endure to see the evil that shall come unto my people,..esther 8-6,..false witnesses are risen up against me,..psalm,..27-12, Well its his opinion but not mine or many many that have lost their lives,..blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake,for theirs is the kingdom of heaven,..Matt 5-10

  2. Hi Al I saw that documentary – tragic!!

    Not sure I would class it as persecution though. It wasn’t so much persecution from outside the church as compromise and corruption from within – which in many ways is far more dangerous and disturbing!!
