Yesterday was a special day for Rebirth of Kosova Church as we celebrated with 9 new believers on the day of their baptism. It was an especially significant day for the church as 4 of the 9 people being baptised are from the new church plant in Klina. Continue reading “Baptisms”
It feels strange to be writing a blog post after such a long break from it. Since we came back to Kosova after Christmas and New Year in the UK we have had periods of business and periods of quiet. Now that we’re in May and, starting this week, enter the busiest period of the Church’s calendar by far – teams season. Continue reading “May 2018 Update”
The church plant in Klina is gaining momentum, and one of the things we have been looking forward to most is holding worship services for the handful of Christians in Klina as well as for those who have questions and want to find out more.
The main worship service in Klina now takes place on Saturdays at 11:00am every other week. For the first of these services we welcomed 8 locals from Klina to come and worship with us and to hear the Word and share fellowship together.
We are not the only ones involved in Klina, many members of the church in Gjakova have been involved in various aspects of this new ministry. Please pray that the Lord will motivate and use the right people for this ministry.
Thank you for your prayers for the church plant in Klina. We thank the Lord for His leading in this new season in the life of Rebirth of Kosova Church and trust in His perfect plan for the church plant in Klina.
Our church here in Kosova needs to raise 7,500€ to buy a minibus for the various ministries of the church. Please follow the link for more details and to donate if you feel led to by the Lord.
Last week Pastor Jeton started the weekly English courses in Klinë and had 5 students, not a bad number to start with. This week the number had grown to 7 students which is a real blessing for the church plant in Klinë both financially for the church plant and in making contacts and building relationships with the people of Klinë.

We wrote about the house ministry in Vraniq back in April and it is still very much part of what we do each week. On Saturday mornings we go for 1-2 hours and spend time in the homes of the Roma families who live in Vraniq. Our time is spent singing worship songs, which the younger kids really love, sharing a story, psalm or reflection from the Bible and then spending time teaching English and Albanian reading and writing, and having a time of fellowship.
It’s been several months since we started the music course at church for those who want to learn to play the piano, guitar or to work on their singing. We want to train the next generation of worship leaders so that each area of ministry in the church has people equipped to lead worship both now and for years to come. Continue reading “Music Course”
In May this year we were visited by friends and former colleagues from the UK. During that week we visited the city to pray for the call on our church to plant a church in Klinë, specifically for God to show us the right place to rent for the church plant and for the gospel message to be heard there.
After several months of prayer and visits to Klinë we finally agreed to rent a small shop opposite a primary school in order to start the church ministry and English course. Continue reading “Church Plant Klinë”
