CSW continues to advocate for the freedom of religion and belief (FORB) and campaigns on behalf of those persecuted for their religious beliefs (or none) in countries across the world.
The most recent case of persecution reported by CSW is in Pakistan, where two Christian teenagers have been arrested on blasphemy charges.
There is good news relating to two former prisoners:
CSW has long campaigned for these two men and we can rejoice that they are free at last!
To support CSW activities, you can look on the CSW website. Here you can find opportunities to pray for victims of persecution and their families.
There is also a magazine, Connect & Encourage, which gives names of those who can be contacted directly and prayed for, with guidance on how to do so safely.
There will be print copies of this magazine at the back of the church during June, free for you to take home.
There will also be two cards for you to sign, which I will be sending to people, with our prayers. (Please do not make political or critical comments in these cards.) I hope that you will be able to add your names, to show support from church members.
Thank you for your continued interest and prayers.
