In restricted nations around the world Christians face detention and torture, simply for following Jesus Christ.
In countries such as Burma, China, Eritrea, North Korea, Pakistan, Vietnam and others, Christian pastors, evangelists and ordinary believers are in prison today because of their active Christian witness.
- being detained without trial, perhaps even tortured
- being unable to see your family, for months, or years
- enduring often terrible conditions
Release’s Prisoners of Faith ministry gives pastoral care and practical support to Christians imprisoned for their faith in Jesus Christ, and their families. We encourage supporters in the UK and Ireland to pray for prisoners, write letters of encouragement, campaign for their release, and give financially to support this vital work.
