On November 2, over 700 churches across Australia united for Solidarity Sunday to pray, raise awareness and stand united with our persecuted brothers and sisters overseas. ACL initiated Solidarity Sunday after receiving feedback from supporters that more needed to be done to raise the profile of global persecution.

Solidarity Sunday was an important and unique event that gave churches the opportunity to highlight to their local communities the plight of Christians suffering persecution around the world.

Thousands of Christians around Australia donned black t-shirts with the Arabic letter “N” in a display of unity with the persecuted. This symbol has been painted on the homes and businesses of Christians in Iraq and Syria, marking them out for persecution.

Please continue to pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters, as well as other religious minorities, including Muslims. Thank God for the faithful witness of our Christian family and pray that He would strengthen and bless them.
