The Lunch for the Persecuted Church: it went well yesterday

Hornchurch Baptists and others attended the lunch and gave generously to the appeal for financial support in aid of the persecuted church.  Hundreds of pounds were raised at the event.

Guest speaker Godfrey Brown shared his experiences with a challenging and moving talk about the problems Christians are facing in rural areas of Columbia.  Many pastors and church leaders have been assassinated by militias and death squads operating in tribal areas.  Godfrey urged folk to sign a petition concerning human rights and religious freedom in Egypt.
