Social Justice: Lesson 2 - How Does the Church Respond to Persecution?

An Open Doors lesson plan with resources

Open Doors is a Christian organisation that provides support to persecuted Christians across the world. They estimate that there are over 340 million Christians suffering persecution across the world today.

Open Doors raises awareness of the issues these Christians face, so that the worldwide Church can pray for them, whilst also raising money to help support them in any way they can. They often send Bible resources to Christians unable to buy any. Over the previous year, it has been involved in sending vaccines and COVID aid to those Christians unable to access them.

This lesson will unpack in more detail why the Church helps and exactly how it does, with some real examples.
