Acts 29 | Europe

Acts 29 Europe is 51 countries, 750,000,000 people and great gospel opportunity combined with great gospel need. Europe is linguistically and culturally diverse and varied and yet shares a common heritage. Broadly Acts 29 Europe comprises the English-speaking countries in the west (the British Isles and Ireland), the Latinate countries of the South (Portugal, Spain, France, Italy) Greece and Turkey to the South East, Scandinavia in the North, the Germanic countries in the centre with Slavic, Baltic and Balkan states in the East.

Statistically speaking, it is impossible to speak in anything but generalities in terms of the continent as a whole. In general the dire percentages of evangelicals (2.5%) across the continent masks the exciting work that is going on nearly everywhere. The church has existed in Europe for 2000 years, and we preach the gospel in post-Catholic, post-Protestant, post-Secular Europe with the wisdom that God gives us, planting churches for the good of our continent and the glory of God.
