Kev and Em Riley really have gone on a Church planting adventure – moving to Gdansk in Poland to plant Grace Church Gdansk. They have organised a Poland weeked 17-19th July for other adventurers to taste the plant too.
Kev writes…. Someone once said, “What happens in Gdansk, moves the world”.The beginning of a world war, the fall of communism in Eastern Europe – both world changing events, both rooted in the history of Gdansk and yet today, Jesus is at work in this city far more significantly… he’s building his church here! As a family, we’ve lived in Gdansk, Poland, for seven months now and are seeing God do amazing things among us! With no links here whatsoever, we’re experiencing God’s blessing among us in a powerful way – thirty-two people gathered to a social event, the establishment of an English writing course with students from the university, relational links into neighbouring Kaliningrad.
If you ave a call to church-planting into a pioneering situation (particularly Northern Europe) then this weekend could be life-changing! If you’re a student, consider coming with us. Spend time learning another language and culture and study (in English) in an excellent university. If you’re a family, come over and see what’s involved in relocating and starting over. Pioneering families expressing authentic faith and love are vital to building the church here! If you have an overseas call into Northern Europe, then come and see how God is leading us to be involved in other nations, even at this early stage of our life as a church.
This weekend will give you a good sense of what Gdansk is like as a city and you will come away with a clear idea as to what we are about as a church plant. You will meet pioneering people with a heart to see Jesus’ rule established in the earth and you’ll eat great food! It just doesn’t get better than that!
