We want to do everything we can to help you discover more about us and how we can enjoy Jesus together.
We would love to meet you on a Sunday or at any of our groups during the week.
Open Doors supports persecuted Christians with Bibles, Christian materials, training, livelihood skills, advocacy - and in a whole host of other ways - so that they know they are not forgotten and can stand strong to serve their communities. They also seek to mobilise the church in the UK & Ireland not only to serve Christians living under religious persecution but also to learn from them what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.

Strathaven Evangelical Church is a Partner Church with Open Doors. We pledge to pray regularly for the persecuted church and to plan some services where we focus on our suffering brothers and sisters, whilst giving ourselves as individuals a focus for prayer and other action. In this we work closely with the Scottish Director and office of Open Doors. If you would like to know more about how you can stay informed, please speak to our church “ambassador” for Open Doors, Ethel Cunningham.
