After months of hard work, decision making, planning and seeking God’s wisdom – a new church has been established in Tirana, Albania. It’s opening day was on 15th March 2015. Prior to the opening, other events had been organised to invite people along and to advertise the new church opening: sharing of the gospel message with 22 new un-churched individuals, Music night with both Christian and non-Christian music being played, and a children’s’ outreach programme.
“The service was a gathering of people we invited for the first time and our church. We decided to not invite guests because we would like to show people what we have and not giving them a show and then coming on next service and finding just us. So I preached and Elton and Mariana welcomed and shared their dream for the new church.
The worship was made from the worship team of our church, and they will help for some time. We spoke about the need of having a church and reason of sending people, because many people don’t understand why should we send people instead keeping them and strengthening what we already have. Especially when we lack of people for our ministries.”
