Albania Church Planting links

Albania Church Planting links

At All Saints, part of OUT, is having a local and also a global vision. On Thursday 9th February we invited an Albanian church planter Edi Demo – who visiting the Netherlands – to come and share at our Thursday evening Holy Communion.

Edi – know for many years by Andrew Tucker – works for and leads a church planting organisation in Albania, called Illyricum. Illyricum Movement have contacts in the Netherlands and the United States.

Revd Grant and Andrew Tucker visited their work last autumn to see more and to visit the three churches which are currently being planted by Illyricum.

Here are some photos from their visit, (and a photo from Edi’s visit to Amersfoort in summer 2016)..


Edi shared for around 30 minutes and then people had the opportunity over coffee to talk more with him and to get to know him better.

All Saints is going to build a partnership with Illyricum – through some financial giving and intercessory prayer to assist it in its work.

We, as a church,  would be interested in a visit again to Albania with a small group form church to both contribute as well as get to know these churches better.

We recorded Edi’s talk and it is in the sermon section if you’d like to listen to what he shared.
