Christian Concern backs our protest!

Rev Toby Iweka from Christian Concern has today confirmed that he will be attending and speaking at our protest march/peace rally on the 4th December.  Toby is an endearing man has a real passion for Pakistani Christians who are suffering significant persecution in recent times.  Toby has been praying for the situation in Pakistan and will be included in our petition delegation to Pakistan. 

Christian Concern since our association with them have been extremely supportive and have proved much guidance and sympathy for our concerns for Christians in Pakistan.  I ask that our readership keep their organisation as they are doing terrific work for Christians based in the UK.  Today they held an immensely successful event outside 10 Downing street and Buckingham Palace.  Their campaign was called "Not Ashamed"  - I will let them tell you more about today's effort as per the email thread below:

Not Ashamed Day Report:

The Not Ashamed campaign has provoked a national debate about the importance of Christianity for the nation.

Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, officially launched his leaflet 'I'm Not Ashamed' at the House of Lords at lunchtime.

At 2pm a delegation visited 10 Downing Street and onto Buckingham Palace to present details about the campaign and why it is being launched.

Supporters managed to come out despite the weather conditions! Many Christians around the country have been wearing a symbol of the cross.

The events of today have triggered a huge debate on the BBC News website. Lets win the debate by joining in and adding our support to Christians standing up for their faith in public. The debate can be found here.

There has been a large amount of media coverage today, some of which can be found here.
Thank you again for all of your support and we look forward to continuing with this campaign to highlight the hope that we have to offer the nation.
