That’s not a question only Britons have asked themselves. What is left of the original dream of the EU’s founding fathers? And where is the EU going? Is the European Union still a Christian project and should it be?
The European Evangelical Alliance is really proud of the fantastic socio-political work done by many of our members. So we wanted to honour them by asking a few to give us a taste of what they have been doing.
On 14 October 2021, the annual 10:14 prayer campaign of How Will They Hear starts. For 14 days, Christians are invited to pray for 10 minutes for different ministries that are serving refugees across Europe, including the European Evangelical Alliance and its advocacy work.
Refugees make headlines regularly. Yet this news tends to vanish quickly. However, the human tragedy is ongoing. It is not and will not vanish in the near future. This is one of the reasons the EU is debating a new Migration Pact. But refugees are not just impacting the EU. They are a European task.
A day of lobby work in Brussels with Arie de Pater, EEA Brussels Representative   On Wednesdays, I take a 6.30 h train for Brussels. As the train is still fairly quiet at that hour, it provides me an opportunity to prepare for the day. That can be listening to a podcast, read and writeREAD MORE
Migration has been a hot political topic across Europe since 2015 when large numbers of people sought sanctuary here.
Several years later, the number arriving is not so big, although more than a 1000 have died so far this year as they tried to cross the Mediterranean. But, with conflicts in Africa and Taliban rule in Afghanistan, most people predict that many more will try to come to Europe.

Countless Evangelical churches and organisations across Europe are involved in welcoming and caring for asylum seekers and refugees. Some have done so for decades. Others have responded to more recent refugee arrivals. Here’s the story of just one great project.READ MORE

Twenty women and girls huddle together into a small Roma church in a Hungarian speaking village in Western Ukraine. Little babies nestle in the arms of teenage mothers, while grandmothers look after older ones. For a moment you might think you have come to a jungle, since the noise can be quite disturbing. But little by little voices quieten and everyone finds their place.Read more
In Nairobi, the first Covid 19 lockdown was in March 2020. Psychologically and emotionally, it felt to me like the announcement of a political state of emergency, except that this was a health-related emergency, unfamiliar and frightening, expecting to see armed soldiers walking on main roads stopping anyone who was foolish enough to venture outside. I looked forward to the afternoon three o’clock government update that gave critical information because I didn’t want to be unprepared for any eventuality, especially since I am also a caregiver of an elderly parent who wonders why we should keep away from others (social distancing) since we have no quarrel with them.Read more
Over the next six months of 2021, the overarching communication theme of the European Evangelical Alliance is “Unlocking Expectations” in times of the pandemic. Readers of the EEA Newsletter will be presented with different perspectives on this theme in several issues of the EEA Newsletter. We are very pleased that the executive team of the EEA Hope for Europe Arts+ Network has agreed to answer some of our questions, as many artists have been challenged by the lockdowns over the last year and a half and many inspiring and creative ideas have emerged in dealing with the restrictions.Read more
Have you ever noticed God speaking to you in different tones? Think about it. We use different tones of communication all the time, especially when teaching. When coaching sports I’m generally noisy and enthusiastic, even to just one individual. I just love celebrating their victories and calling them up to greater heights.Read more
With the one-year anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic’s spread […] [occurring this year], it’s important we recognize the difficulty of the past […] [16 months]. There’s no other way to say it: It’s been hard. We’re more physically distant than we, as a people of God, ever have been in over a century. Close family and friends haven’t gathered together in months if not the entire [..] [time]. People have suffered financial instability, food insecurity and the loss of loved ones due to the virus. While the church’s mission and work continue despite social distancing restrictions, I know deeper relationships with people in the community have been difficult to maintain or initiate.Read more
