CSW: Red Wednesday

Take a stand for faith and freedom on #RedWednesday

Dear Peter,

On 13 May, three churches in Surabaya, Indonesia were subjected to simultaneous bomb attacks carried out by members of the same family. Thirteen people died and dozens more were injured: but the message from the churches is one of faith and peace.

When CSW visited the churches a month to the day after the attacks, Father Aloysius Widyawan told us “None of the victims ever asked ‘why has this happened to me?’ They just said ‘okay, we forgive them, and we pray for the victims’”.

On #RedWednesday, we stand in solidarity and prayer with those suffering for their faith all over the world.

CSW, in partnership with Aid to the Church In Need, will be taking a stand for the churches of Surabaya and others who face injustice because of their faith on Wednesday 28 November with events across the UK and Scotland. Churches and public buildings will light up in red, we’ll be wearing red, and we’ll be holding two special events in London.

Here’s how you can be a part of #RedWednesday 2018

  • Join us in London, Wednesday 28 November from 3.30pm at Parliament Square (you can meet me next to the Nelson Mandela statue). Speakers and rally will start at 5.30pm, followed by a prayer walk to Westminster Cathedral where we will join Aid to the Church in Need for a #RedWednesday service with a live link up to Aleppo. 
  • Invite your MP “Meet me on the Square.” MPs can “pop in” to our Parliament Square event anytime between 3.30pm and 5pm: you’ll be able to meet with them and take a photo with #RedWednesday placards, eat red velvet cake and take your #RedWednesday stand in one of our campaigns. Invite your MP to meet you there via our website!

See you on Wednesday 28 November!

Jessica
Events Coordinator
