UCAN needs your support
You are why we do what we do - report, describe, comment, review. It is to bring to your eyes just what life is like for believers across Asia that we publish UCAN.
But as you know, the effort needs to be sustained if it is to have continuing effect.
UCAN publishes some 150 stories a week in four languages across six websites. We are grateful to benefactors in Europe and the US who support us. But those countries and the Church there are under increasing financial strain and their generosity no longer covers our costs.
We need financial help from our readers to sustain our efforts. Our reporters, editors, video producers and photographers all have families and we need to support them. They do excellent jobs, but they can't do their jobs for nothing.
Will you help us to sustain UCAN? Please click here to help.
Thanks in anticipation.

How to make a wedding ceremony rock
Woman vicar gets the congregation on their feet

One English couple didn't wait until their wedding reception to start dancing -- they got their groove on in the middle of the ceremony!
Gary and Tracy Richardson had just shared their first kiss as husband and wife when the song "Everybody Dance Now" suddenly blasted through the speakers at St. Mary’s and St. Martin’s Church in Blyth, England. Then, officiant Kate Bottley led the newlyweds, wedding party and many of the wedding guests in a choreographed flash mob that also included the classic disco song, "Celebration."
Gary posted a video of the flash mob to YouTube on Friday (the wedding was held earlier this month), and in the video's description he wrote that the flash mob was Bottley's idea. They rehearsed the routine along with 28 friends and family members in the weeks leading up to the ceremony.
Tracy told the Daily Mirror Sunday that though Bottley only "halfheartedly" suggested staging a flash mob, she and Gary didn't hesitate to say "yes."
“Now we see how well it worked and how the congregation got involved, we were obviously right," Tracy said. “We’ve been watching it and laughing so much. There’s a tall guy at the back from work who is in IT called Big Dave and it takes him a lot to get going, but even he starts to move.”
