Europe is in the news on a daily basis, but how much do we understand our continent and the opportunities for reaching people with the Good News of Jesus?
Many people are increasingly secular, but others are finding a home with new moves of the Spirit. Many are being left behind economically and there is mass migration from violence, war and poverty but also new engagement with Christianity of religiously diverse communities. In the midst of this rapidly changing context, we have a unique opportunity to display a God who loves and cares.
