Side-by-side: The key role of women in the work of the gospel in Europe … and how can we support them.
January 11, 2021
7:30 pm
Main Speaker:
Jean Woods, Pilar Herrera Carretero, Vivienne Birch and Jenny Mariotti
Series
Europe Needs the Gospel
Description
Jean Woods, Pilar Herrera Carretero, Vivienne Birch and Jenny Mariotti have all been EMF missionaries (the latter in Italy, the others in Spain), serving for many years in different capacities, both by themselves or alongside their husbands. They will be discussing this important topic as a panel discussion, and enabling us to gain insight into the joys and trials of missionary life, and enabling us to understand how support the women workers in Europe more faithfully.

All throughout EMF’s 60-year history, women have played a pivotal role in the work of the gospel in Europe. Some as individual outreach workers, working with women and children; others as wives actively supporting their husbands in church leadership, others working within fellowships teaching and working with women in the churches. The particular challenges and trials of missionary life can often fall heavily on the shoulder of the women, and these can be acute when long-sufferance is needed and disappointments are many. But these challenges are rarely voiced or shared with supporters.

Evangelizing Catholics: Why and how?
July 6, 2020
7:30 pm
Main Speaker:
José Moreno Berrocal
Series
Europe Needs the Gospel
Description
A Spanish perspective. Why do we need to evangelize Roman Catholics? Does Roman Catholicism share the same gospel as the evangelical church? Do evangelicals need to understand the mindset of Roman Catholicism in order to communicate the gospel clearly? In this webinar José Moreno Berrocal, an EMF missionary and pastor in Alcázar de San Juan will be exploring these questions.

While Europe has become the most secular continent in the world, many millions of people remained committed to or strongly influenced by Roman Catholicism. In half of the countries where EMF works, Roman Catholicism is the dominant religion, and often forms a part of national identity - but there are major variations across these countries. Evangelicals and Roman Catholics may well agree on many moral and ethical issues, for example, on abortion or the role of the family. But do evangelicals share the same gospel with Roman Catholics, and if not, how do evangelicals go about sharing the gospel?

The power of the printed page
June 1, 2020
7:30 pm
Main Speaker:
Matt Hill & Krzysztof Rutkowski
Series
Europe Needs the Gospel
Description
Still critical to building up gospel churches in Europe? In this webinar, Matt Hill & Krzysztof Rutkowski, both deeply involve in the work of Christian publishing in Spain and Poland respectively, will be describing why they consider Christian literature to be so crucial to the building up of the evangelical church.

In the UK we are used to having a rich spectrum of good Christian literature at our fingertips or at the click of a mouse. Many great writers from centuries of evangelical learning, insight and experience, made accessible to us at low cost in our own language. And such literature not only has transformed the history of the UK, but continues to do so. But what about mainland Europe? In many countries, freedom for evangelical Christians is a relatively recent thing and there is no history of Bible-centred authors. What resources are there to help churches? Come and find out from two men who have devoted their lives to publishing.
