48-hours offline. Could you cope?

By Dan Etheridge

No Instagram. No Snapchat. No FaceTime. No gaming. No Spotify. No phone. No internet. 48 hours offline. Complete digital blackout. Could you cope?

Blackout 2018 / 26-28 October

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 Christians in Syria who have fled horrific persecution and are still homeless, needing food, medicine and shelter. Plus you can use the time you’re not spending on your phone in prayer, making a massive noise before God for your persecuted family.

Sign up for the Blackout using the form below (on mobile) or to your right (desktop), and we’ll send you a free little resource pack with a Blackout Mini Guide, phone sticker and access to a whole bunch of downloads too.
