Red is the Christian colour of martyrdom. Christians are the most persecuted faith group in today’s world and #RedWednesday will honour all Christians who suffer and die for their faithfulness to Christ’s message of peace and love. #RedWednesday will shine a light on Christian persecution but also highlight the injustices perpetrated against other faith groups.
JOA will be holding #RedWednesday on Wednesday 22nd November to support the work of Aid to the Church in Need (ACN). ACN are an organisation who work for the rights of those persecuted for their faith around the world.
On Wednesday 22nd November, we are asking that pupils donate 50p (via ParentPay) to support the work of ACN, whilst also wearing an item of red clothing in solidarity with those affected by religious persecution. There will also be student led lessons and reflections taking place in RE lessons and in the Chapel.
