This Sunday we’re going to hear the story of Pachayammal, an India woman who was trapped in slavery for 6 years. But we’re also going to hear what God says about injustice, that true worship seeks justice. Come and find out how you can worship in a way that reflects God’s heart for the oppressed.
4. Standing with the Persecuted Church 6th November 2022
Text: Acts 6:8-7:2a,51-8:3
The truth is that more Christians are being persecuted for their faith today than at any other time on the history of the church. Persecution is very real. This Sunday we’re going to remember our brothers and sisters who face persecution in other parts of the world. Jesus told us to expect persecution, because if the world hated him, it will also hate us. We’re going to look at why we are persecuted, what persecution looks like, the effects of persecution, and how we can stand together. Come and be inspired by the faith of your brothers and sisters in Christ.
