We will always remember him and his dear wife Margie. Our prayers are with his family. Read More
We are thankful to God for the great time we had together with our pastors during our fellowship and study days in October. We were happy to spend time together and support each other.
During the pastor study days, we presented the new church planting team who will be planting a Russian-speaking church in Tallinn. We are so thankful to God for this wonderful group of people. Please pray with us as they start the Alpha course and lay the groundwork to start the church.
Over the fall break, we also had a city camp for teenagers in Tallinn and a youth leaders’ training retreat. Please pray for our youth ministry that it would continue to grow and reach more young people.
We pray that God will keep you and your loved ones safe during the pandemic, and give you His peace and joy in the midst of these troubling times.

Bless us, the “Year for God” project team, together with the youth, began to conduct Alpha courses for non-believing teenagers. Meetings take place on Saturdays, with up to 15 non-believers attending the meetings. Pray for a change in their lives so that Jesus Christ will become their God.
Also, with the assistance of the “Year for God” project, we began to form a new homegroup, from which we hope a new community will begin. Bless us that the Spirit of God will transform people through our ministry.
On November 28, a youth worship evening “AWE Tallinn” will be held, which is organized by our youth. May joint worship among representatives of different faiths will open heaven.
God is always good.
We are thankful that some of the children at the children’s center were able to be in the church’s teenage camp during the fall holiday. They really liked it. Alina, who previously attended the children’s center, is now actively involved in the work of the church and was also one of the helpers in the teenage camp.
The Tallinn Social and Health Care Department has several new employees. We pray that they will be open to the work of the children’s center and will continue to support our work also next year.
