Blackout is a 21st Century fast that aims to strengthen and serve the Church in places around the world where following Jesus comes at a real cost.
Christians in North Korea, Syria, North Africa and across the Arab world can find that their faith is not respected. In fact it’s often seriously opposed. These Christians are Blacked Out, hidden, forgotten. They meet in secret. They meet in fear, worried that they might be found out.
Blackout is our chance to use the freedom we have to serve them. It’s a 21st Century fast where we get sponsored to go quiet on social networks, phones, the internet and whatever else we have freedom to enjoy.
In the process we’ll spend time in prayer, reading the bible and getting inspired by stories of people who know the true cost of following Jesus.
You can run Blackout whenever you want, as a group event, with sessions and reflection times or simply on your own. Either way, download the guide opposite to work out what you can do! You don’t have to take part in the whole weekend, you can just do a day – but whatever you decide, do sign up and start getting sponsored today…
We support people who are beaten, tortured,
imprisoned, falsely accused, and hated simply for following Jesus.
