Take action now to stop the execution of Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani

The Foreign Secretary and the Archbishop of Canterbury intervened last night to try to save a Christian pastor in Iran who has refused to renounce his faith to escape a death sentence. An Iranian court gave Youcef Nadarkhani, 34, a third and final chance to avoid hanging, but he replied: “I am resolute in my faith and Christianity and have no wish to recant.”
The persecution of Christians across the globe is real.

Do pray for Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani. Then act by signing this petition whilst there is still time to do so.

Update: “CSW has facilitated the sending of over 19,000 emails from campaigners to the Iranian embassy in the UK and continues to pursue advocacy on behalf of Pastor Nadarkhani.”
