Why you need to pray and to come:
Christianity in the UK faces a number of challenges, possibly the two greatest being from an aggressive Secularism hostile to all religious faith but especially to Christianity, and an energetic and often radical Islam seeking to expand. While Christians often feel they understand the challenge of secularism and materialism, which has been a long time building, the challenge of Islam appears to cause often confused and contradictory responses. This is curious, as Islam has been a rival of Christianity for nearly 1400 years. Come & explore these issues as they impact on our young people.

The mission of Barnabas Fund is to support Christians where they are a minority and suffer discrimination, oppression and persecution as a consequence of their faith.
Our goal is to strengthen Christian individuals, churches and their communities by providing material and spiritual support in response to needs identified by local Christian leaders.
In accordance with Biblical teaching, we believe that Christians should treat all people of all faiths with love and compassion, even those who persecute them.
