Many believers will risk their safety to meet together as the threat of violent attacks on Christians heightens over Christmas and New Year.

On 17 December 2017, Islamic State terrorists attacked a pre-Christmas service at Bethel Memorial Methodist Church in Quetta, Pakistan, killing nine and leaving more than 50 Christians injured. The previous Christmas, an Egyptian Christian couple, Gamal Sami, 60, and his wife Nadia, 48, were stabbed to death in their bed by two Muslim men in the village of Tukh Dalakah.

Despite the dangers, Christians in places of persecution will meet to rejoice that a Saviour was born in Bethlehem.
