Standing Strong

Open Doors Celebration 2017

Standing Strong is a one-day celebration of God's faithfulness in places where faith costs the most.


The day will be jam-packed full of inspiration and challenge from the persecuted church. Your faith will grow as you hear amazing stories of how God is at work. International speakers include:

Pastor Abraham James* is Chairman for the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in a northern state and has experienced great persecution as a result.
Pastor Jamal leads a growing church in Lebanon that is serving the needs of Syrian refugees. Through a local partner, Open Doors supports this wide-ranging ministry.
Pastor Sandeep Kumar has an in-depth knowledge of the issues for Christians in India having been a partner of Open Doors for many years.

There will also be a global perspective on Open Doors work with times of worship and prayer for our persecuted family.


*All pastors' names changed for security reasons.



Lunch and refreshments are included in the ticket price. On arrival, please bring your ticket to be scanned at the registration desk where you will be issued with a wristband. Without a wristband you will not be permitted into the event. For further information on security arrangements, go through to the relevant booking page.
