“Do not be afraid! I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.”

Two thousand years ago an angel said to some shepherds, “Do not be afraid”.
Today that message remains as important as ever.

Around the world, many Christians are persecuted for their faith. Faced with daily anxiety and fear, they put their confidence in God and trust in the promises in the Bible.

Among this year's Open Doors Christmas resources:
  • ‘Do Not Be Afraid’ carol sheet. Contains stories, prayers, Bible readings and, of course, well-loved carols. Use it in your services or take it out carol singing.
  • ‘Do Not Be Afraid’ cards. This giveaway card has seven Bible verses to bring comfort and encouragement to anyone feeling anxious or worried. Great to give out to visitors to your Christmas services and to family and friends between Christmas and New Year.
  • Opportunities to write to persecuted Christian children around the world.
  • Videos, notes and activities for speakers and church leaders to use in their services as they wish.

The resources will be available in October
