Planting and serving vibrant churches across Europe’s cultural centres
A SHARED CALLING
The Europe Collaboration started with a shared calling to plant and serve vibrant churches in Europe’s cultural centres. A group of donors found each other and recognised they could support European church planting more effectively by working together. Their vision was to see large multiplying churches established in key cultural centres across continental Europe - a vision for vibrant communities where the gospel is once again retold with life-changing impacts.
Today, through a dynamic collaboration between donors, church planters, domain experts, and specialist ministries, the Europe Collaboration has supported the planting of 21 churches in 12 nations. Churches we believe that have the potential to reset expectations of what church can be—away from a narrative of decline and into one of compelling, compassionate, and growing gospel witness.
PLANTING VIBRANT CHURCHES
We collaborate with donors and church planting networks to plant churches in Europe’s cultural centres.
Our unique process is:
Donor Initiated - Donors set criteria for the type of church plant they wish to support.
Research Led - Our team works with trusted referral partners to identify and assess promising church plants across multiple networks.
Analysis Driven - Our church plants are extensively reviewed by a panel of domain experts.
Donor Decided - Donors rate the final portfolio and ultimately decide where to invest.
SUPPORTING GROWING CHURCHES
We continue the collaboration for five years to see vibrant church plants established.
Church plants within the Europe Collaboration recieve:
Long-term Funding - 5 year tapered grants to provide the foundations for a new church community.
In-depth Reporting - Bi-annual reports to monitor, assess, and improve growth of the church plant.
Learning Communities - We regularly connect all our church planters to learn from one another.
Prayer & Support - The prayer and support of Gospel Patrons, mentors, and our Team Pastors.
