The Life of Jesus Performance

The Life of Jesus

Last year, the worship group from our church, Kisha Rilindja e Kosovës, led the worship at the joint Easter Sunday service in Gjakovë (Read more: Urime Pashka – Happy Easter). For joint services each of the 6 churches in Gjakovë takes turns in providing the worship, drama, preaching and welcome, so this year our church is providing the drama. During the Christmas Day service at our church the youth performed “The Life of Jesus”, a mime taking only 6 minutes. At Christmas the message of the drama was that we shouldn’t focus only on Jesus’ birth but on His birth as the starting point of His life, ministry, death and resurrection.

We’ve been practising all week with the youth to perform the same drama at the Cultural Palace on Sunday afternoon.

The Youth Clean Up Gjakovë

Last weekend we went with the Youth of the church for the second year in a row to clean up the park area near to our church. You can see the pictures and read about this initiative from last year in our blog post Ta Pastrojmë Gjakovën – Clean Up Gjakovë. Last year we collected 8 sacks of rubbish from a small area just across the road from our church and this year we collected 7 so there is perhaps a gradual improvement taking place.

House Ministry in Vraniq

For about 3 months we have been going with Drita to Vraniq, a village about 6 miles (10 km) from Gjakovë. The purpose for these visits is to teach English, help with homework and evangelise to the families that live there.  Continue reading “House Ministry in Vraniq”

Kursi Muzikes – Music Course

For some time we have been planning and praying about teaching a music course for anyone at the church who is interested in learning an instrument or developing further skills in an instrument they already play. Continue reading “Kursi Muzikes – Music Course”

Happy New Year! It’s been a while…

Urime Vitin e Ri – Happy New Year! We hope that everyone reading this had a wonderful Christmas and is being blessed so far in 2017. It seems like 2016 went so quickly, especially the last month which was jam packed full of church activities, family commitments and challenges. Continue reading “Happy New Year! It’s been a while…”

Youth ministry doesn’t just happen in the church

Every now and again it’s good to take the church outside the building and spend time in fellowship somewhere different. The Youth Ministry is no exception and, because some of the boys were occupied with the inter-church football tournament the number of young people was diminished. Helen went with Drita (another church leader who is responsible for the Youth Ministry) and eight of the young people to the local shopping centre for an hour of bowling. Continue reading “Youth ministry doesn’t just happen in the church”

Inter-church football tournament

You might remember that earlier this year Ilir captained a team from Rebirth of Kosova Church in a special football tournament in Prishtina. In that first tournament the team didn’t make it through the group stages but enjoyed the time playing against other teams from churches all over Kosova. Continue reading “Inter-church football tournament”

Ta Pastrojmë Gjakovën – Clean Up Gjakova

Back in June we wrote about a national campaign to clean up Kosova (Please see Ta Pastrojmë Kosovën – Clean Up Kosova) when we spent a day clearing rubbish from Brekoc, a village we often support with food parcels (Please see Food, and more…). Today, as part of the Youth Ministry of our Church, Rebirth of Kosova, we worked with the Youth to clean up Gjakovë.  Continue reading “Ta Pastrojmë Gjakovën – Clean Up Gjakova”

Youth Cell Group and Kosovapoly

We took over leading one of the Youth Cell Groups at church at the end of February and we asked for prayers to bond well with the group and for them to grow in confidence speaking English with us, using and building on what they have already learned at school and in private courses. Continue reading “Youth Cell Group and Kosovapoly”

Easter Monday Football Tournament

After the busy Easter weekend there was no time to rest for Ilir who went with six other young guys from the church to play in a special football tournament organised by Scripture Union and held in the capital, Prishtina. Continue reading “Easter Monday Football Tournament”
