Secret Church

Worship with the world’s hidden christians.

Secret Church is a totally different way of doing church. Powerful, interactive, full of worship and faith, this is an experience that will help you to journey deeper into the world of the persecuted church.

It’s an inspiring introduction to the real-life worship of persecuted believers around the world. Whatever size your group is, the Secret Church resource will wake you up to the reality of persecution. And when we say ‘wake up,’ we mean it! Because, we’re suggesting you meet at dawn and in a secret location – just like so many followers of Jesus have to do around the world.

Of course, you can meet at any time. But the reality of church for millions of people in the world is that in order to meet safely they have to remain hidden. They rise early and meet in hidden places. What would we learn about our faith if, just for once, we did the same?

Pasha's story

Pasha is a secret Christian in Iran who had an amazing dream where he met Jesus!

The secret reality

“On our arrival the men approached us one by one and welcomed us with huge smiles and handshakes, often followed by big hugs. We could smell the sweat on them and knew many hadn’t bathed in days…

There was no electricity in the house where we assembled, and blankets covered the windows to prevent unwanted observation. Apart from a little sunlight leaking at the edges of the window coverings, candles provided the only light. For the next few hours we were transported into a world few have experienced…“
