Congratulations! You’ve taken part in a Secret Church service.
Here are four ways to deepen your connection with the secret church around the world.
One of the things which encourages secret believers is knowing that they are not alone and that others are praying for them.
“We try to stay in touch, and we stay connected through WhatsApp,” says pastor George Moushi in Syria. “We have devotions and we praise and worship together.
Everyone prays and shares their thoughts and feelings. At the same time, we share our prayer requests with each other and exchange the latest news.”
You, too, can keep connected with the persecuted church.

Without our help, secret Christians will be even more isolated, even more alone. But as a global family we need to continue to pray and support them.
This picture shows a secret baptism which took place in Central Asia. All the twelve new believers became Christians through receiving digital Bibles and other media. Could you raise money or give to support your persecuted church family?
Keep reflecting on the experience. Whilst we know that the lockdown is temporary for us in the UK, we can use it to learn more about the courageous faith of those for whom isolation is an everyday fact of life.
Mojtaba from Iran was imprisoned for leading a secret house church. In this video, he shares how God used his imprisonment to share the gospel with the least and the lost.
Spread the word. Let others know about your Secret Church experience.
Could you share a Secret church service with others? Maybe lead one for your friends, church, cell or home group?
This is how the Secret Church grows around the world: it starts with one group meeting in one house, then the news spreads, more groups appear.
And the Kingdom of God carries on multiplying and growing, right under the noses of those who think that they have it under control…
We support people who are beaten, tortured,
imprisoned, falsely accused, and hated simply for following Jesus.
