Secret Church

We had our first ever Secret Church at MRBC on 22nd November 2015.   Even though it wasn't well advertised, about 40 people came and experienced the limitations that churches in some part of the world experience - without the sense of fear and danger.  Improvisation was the order of the day, even down to the pitta bread and olive oil that substituted for communion!

We also watched this great film from Brother Andrew about Syria which is very challenging.  

For more information about Open Doors and Secret Church services, try their website.  Please pray for persecuted Christians around the world and support organisations that help the persecuted church like Open Doors.

But also remember that even in our own divided society, we can be ministers of reconciliation, and as Brother Andrew puts in, to love our enemies and make them our friends, which is far more powerful than the hate and violence that come from so many people and groups in the world today.
