THE TOWN // Roquetas de Mar, Almeria
Roquetas de Mar is part of the ‘Plastic Sea,’ a huge extension of intensive agriculture so big you can see it from space. The town's population has almost quadrupled in size since 1990 to more than 100 000. A third of the town’s population are immigrants, from Romania and from North and West Africa, mostly from a Muslim majority background. They’ve come for work and for opportunity, but many find themselves exploited, impoverished and trapped.
There are few churches in the area, many of which are focussed on one language or ethnic group.
WHAT WE ARE DOING // We are forming a team to live as vibrant disciples.
We long to see a church planted that reflects the diversity of the town and the unity found in the gospel.
We want to shine God’s light into the darkness, and love people with Christ’s love.
We are spending the first year Praying, Learning and Connecting
- Praying over the area, and praying for God to form a team.
- Connecting with the local people, the different migrant communities, and with ministries in the area and churches in the province of Almería
- Learning about the area and the people, what God is doing and what He might have for us to do. We’ll be exploring strategic ways to get involved in the local community and opportunities to start new ministry initiatives.
