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.
If you are not able to get to our little gas bottle, click on the link above to learn more about GLIA’s Centre for Hope.

What should I expect at the service?
The services are contemporary, led by our worship band and last about 60-75mins. They are quite loud, but not painfully so! The first half is a mixture of singing and prayer, followed by the preacher for the day exploring a passage from scripture. At the moment, the early service and the evening service are less busy than the 11am service. However, in the first part of 2016 we are looking at developing the early service and this will change over the next few weeks.
