Do Something / Travel with us

Go. Visit and support those who are persecuted...

Looking for an adventure? Got a passion for justice and a love for God’s people? Do you want to stand with your persecuted family in person? Well, try a different type of holiday this year by travelling with us.

You can shine God’s light in some of the darkest places by going to the nations where faith costs the most. Meet our brothers and sisters face to face, pray for the nations, smuggle much-needed Christian literature – let our persecuted church family know that they haven’t been forgotten!

Why go?

Your own faith will rise as you have the privilege of meeting Christians who have chosen to follow Jesus no matter the cost, and hear stories of God at work, even in the midst of fierce opposition.

It will be a life-changing experience – you will come back from your trip with more of a heart for God’s people and a greater desire to be a voice for the persecuted church, a link in the chain between the Christians you meet in the nations and the church in the UK.

Travel with us

Delivery trips

In many countries it is incredibly difficult to purchase Christian materials. Churches often share Bibles amongst their members or even copy pages by hand. We are committed to equipping our Christian family with the materials they need – in 2015 Open Doors delivered an average of 353 items of Christian materials an hour! You can be a part of this ministry by joining a delivery trip and becoming one of our daring travellers.

North Africa

Options throughout the year
Type: Delivery
Cost: £800
Duration: 3 days
Deliver much needed literature to help new Christians, leaders and pastors to receive teaching and training. The church in this country is growing at a fast pace but they are unable to obtain Christian material in–country. You will also hopefully have the privilege of spending time with a Christian and praying in strategic places. For security reasons these are very short trips and an adventurous spirit is needed!

Apply to go

We’re looking for people who are committed followers of Jesus, part of a local church, flexible, willing to contribute and growing in their relationship with God. Most of all we’re looking for people who have a heart for the persecuted church!

“I must say that I feel blessed and privelegded to have served God in this way”Linda, traveller with Open Doors

“This trip has – in a nutshell – given me the opportunity to see the amazing work that Open Doors does by supporting these partners, has renewed my drive for the part I play, and has given me more heart for the refugees that the world can so easily reduce to numbers, not people.”Helen, traveller with Open Doors

We support people who are beaten, tortured,
imprisoned, falsely accused, and hated simply for following Jesus.
