Missed the Blackout?
Did you miss the Blackout? Don’t panic, you can do a sponsored digital silence whenever you like – it’s totally up to you. We’re no longer sending out Blackout packs in the post, but you can still sign up using the form below and get access to a whole bunch of digital resources to help you spend a weekend offline, praying for persecuted Christians.
What is Blackout?
No Instagram. No Snapchat. No FaceTime. No gaming. No Spotify. No phone. No internet. 48 hours offline. Complete digital blackout. Could you cope? Blackout is a sponsored 48 hour digital fast for persecuted Christians. That means a whole weekend without your phone, the internet, social networking or anything involving the web.
Around the world Christians have no voice. Millions are persecuted, threatened, beaten, arrested, tortured and some even killed for their choice to follow Jesus. They are being silenced. By getting sponsored to go quiet online, you’ll raise money for change and use the time you’re not spending on your phone in prayer, making a massive noise before God for your persecuted family.
