Lent & Easter Appeal 2020


Make a difference to persecuted Christians today

“Weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.”
Psalm 30:5

In the region where Jesus lived, his followers are now in danger.

Every day, many face discrimination, physical attacks and the threat of being imprisoned for their faith.

“In my lifetime, I have witnessed the rapid decline of the Christian faith in the very area of Jesus’ earthly ministry. It is something that makes me feel wounded. I would dearly love to see the faith flourish again in its heartland.”

These words are from Alex (not his real name), a lawyer who wants to serve persecuted Christians in the Middle East.

Help the fight for justice

He has a passion to fight for justice for people like Pastor Matthias, a Christian in Iran who was sentenced to five years in prison just for practising his faith.

Christians in the Middle East are crying out for Alex’s legal expertise and mission heart, but without financial support from caring Christians like you, he can’t respond.

With your help, he will join faithful people like Rebecca and Sam (not their real names). Like Alex, their hearts grieve for Christians in North Africa.

Rebecca and Sam pour their lives into training around 50 new missionaries for North Africa every year, having a major impact in a challenging region.

Help the light to shine

Yet, because they can’t share much about their work for fear of compromising people’s safety, Rebecca and Sam are struggling to raise the financial support they need to keep doing this vital work. To keep going, they need your help.

This Lent, you can be a light in the darkness for persecuted Christians and people who are still waiting to hear the gospel.

Can you help us reach our target of £86,800 and make sure all our mission partners in the Middle East are resourced to share the love of Jesus?

Together, we can see the gospel flourish again in this part of the world.

Please make your gift today:

A gift of £10 could support Rebecca and Sam to continue their work training missionaries in North Africa and introduce more people to Jesus
A gift of £25 could allow Alex to start fighting for justice for persecuted Christians sooner
A gift of £50 could help other CMS mission partners to stay in the Middle East and North Africa and let Christians there know they are not alone or forgotten
