EUROPE

Acts 29 Europe exists to facilitate and catalyse church-planting efforts across our continent. We are currently 80 churches (members and candidates) with 42 applicants. This represents significant growth for our Network in a continent which is, in many regions, less than 1% evangelical.

About

Many regions are now operating with their own assessment, coaching, training and support in-context and in-language, with growing teams of people working on the ground. This development goes hand in hand with a growing sense of solidarity between our regions, as well as between our regions and other regions outside Europe and between our Network and other Networks.

Acts 29 Europe finds itself highly impacted by the priorities that our collaboratives have highlighted. Europe is dealing with rapid urbanisation at one level and also problems and opportunities related to its rural zones. Each country is confronted with its own version of church in hard places.

We are delighted to benefit from the expertise and input from our Rural and Church in Hard Places teams. At the same time, Islam is making rapid progress in some European countries – and in other countries of our Network Islam is dominant. Nearly all European countries are dealing with mass immigration from troubled zones in North Africa, the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa which necessarily entails welcoming and interacting with Muslims.

In our highly complex, challenging times, we are grateful to be part of the Acts 29 family and together contribute to the advancement of the gospel in our beautiful and broken continent.
