Europe. A continent so amass in fascinating history, spectacular art and towering feats of nature. The continent that founded both Western Civilisation and Western Christianity. And boasts the most beautiful cities, full of rich culture and diversity of language. Europe is an explorer’s treasure chest.
With a population of nearly 748 million and only 2.5% evangelical Christians, Europe is bursting in its need for personal relationship with God and relevant, spirit filled churches.
C3 Europe currently has 38 churches who are pioneering across this continent’s landscape and establishing vibrant communities that are bringing the hope of Jesus to their region
This family of C3 churches is in great health, with increasing connections between pastors and the releasing of many new younger pastors.
There is a hunger for expansion :
Those churches who are multi-site have enabled us to get into places like Almere, Nijmegen, Darmstad, York, Paris and Madrid.
We have welcomed in a great new church in Birmingham, UK, C3 Gallery Church.
2 highlights have been :
The annual regional conference has gained fantastic traction over the last 2 or 3 years, packing out large auditoriums and creating momentum for the future.
Bootcamps and retreats for training and releasing leaders and church planters
MIRACLE IN MOTION
- Both C3 Rivers in Arnhem, The Netherlands and C3 Stara Zagora, Bulgaria have both just bought their own buildings.
- C3 Leipzig is moving toward multiple locations in less than 3 years.
THE FUTURE LOOKS LIKE
There is a strong desire to continue to build on a strong foundation of healthy pastors and churches, and feeding into this health with retreats, round tables and gatherings.
At the same time we are ambitious for further expansion, encouraging certain apostolic centres to stretch out to plant or multi-site. We are keeping our eyes on cities like Barcelona, Berlin, Warsaw and Dublin.
