As of 19th February, there is going to be a new focus for the evening services.
1st Sunday of the month. This service will include the sharing of stories about what God has done or is doing in people’s life’s. This will normally be in the form of an informal interview. The service will also include some sung praise, videos, prayer and a message from the Bible.
2nd Sunday of the month. The main focus of this service will be communion where we remember the death of Jesus. Communion will be central and the service will often include prayer, reflection, video, a short message and some sung praise
3rd Sunday of the month. This service will be a more contemporary service aimed particularly at the millennial generation. It will include a more contemporary worship style and message. The service will at times be interactive and use video, reflective images and drama.
4th Sunday of the month. As part of this service we will engage with a culturally relevant topic or follow a sermon series as we consider how the Bible speaks today. This service will also include some sung praise, videos and prayer.

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’

During the winter months the temperature in Dorohoi, Romania can average -25°C. This make life very difficult for those what have little or no income – many of whom struggle to meet most of their living costs.
Many of those that come to the GLIA centre cannot afford to pay for their gas bottles to be refilled or for wood for their Soba’s (stoves) which means that they are unable to cook or keep warm. We provide gas refills for as many as we can, especially during the winter and we are able to provide wood for some of those that do not have gas bottles
You will see that there is a small blue (imitation) gas bottle by the church welcome desk. If you would like to contribute to the cost of providing refills or wood there is a slot in the top, all contributions in the gas bottle will be used for gas or wood.
