World Cup Intro

By Dan Etheridge

Tackle persecution at the 2023 Women’s World Cup and cheer on followers of Jesus who courageously live out their faith in places of intense hostility.

Love football? Of course you do! But did you know that playing at the 2023 Women’s World Cup are five countries that feature on the Open Doors World Watch list. That’s five countries where Christians face extreme or very high levels of persecution because of their faith in Jesus. So, this Women’s World Cup we want you to kick off about the injustice, violence, threats, exclusion and intimidation millions of Christians face on a daily basis. Make a start by ordering our free World Cup Wall Chart to pray as they play, then check out some of the fundraising ideas too.
