“Our time of prayer involves gathering around people and giving thanks and praying in Jesus’ name for their needs – the community is committed to what some call “prayer evangelism”…that is, people meeting Jesus in supernatural answers to prayer and in the spirituality of fervent prayer itself. This is a hallmark of Upper Room Church.”Dr. Wesley White, Communitas Staff & Team Leader for Upper Room Church
Upper Room Church meets in the West End of Glasgow and is a community of mainly Iranian asylum seekers and refugees. Led by four Communitas staff and supported by an advisory team and ministry workers from within the church, this thriving community of between 200-250 members – we are mainly Iranian in Glasgow!
With gatherings in English and Farsi, we are trying to be supportive of the existing language needs of the community while being welcome to everyone. Weekly Bible studies, soon Conversational English Classes and a Women’s Bible study are also held in addition to a Thursday evening service. During our Thursday gathering, we have worship, a fellowship meal, Bible teaching and 2 hours of prayer for people!
