Upper Room Church – Glasgow, Scotland
HELP FUND THIS PROJECT
What started as a Bible study in a flat, grew into a house church, which grew too big and we were forced to move. Upper Room Church meets in a local church on Thursday evening in the West End of Glasgow. Primarily made up of Iranians and conducted in English and Farsi, our aim is to become a church that expresses many nations. Our name is derived from the fact that we are in an 'upper room' flat and during a time of teaching in the Book of Acts (1:13), we made the connection to the first church!
Our gatherings involve four main elements: worship through music & song, a fellowship meal, expository preaching (with a focus on how to apply the Word in our lives), and prayer. Our time of prayer involves gathering around people and giving thanks and praying in Jesus' name for their needs. We are 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. We believe this is a hallmark of Upper Room Church.
Our church has various needs that we ask you to consider supporting. First, please pray that people would come to know the Lord Jesus! Second, would you consider making a donation to Upper Room Church? We are often in need of Farsi Bibles, many of our brothers and sisters live on less than $50/week so we often support people with basic needs such as a bus pass, food, clothing, etc. Lastly, would you come visit us and the Upper Room? There is no better way to see and support Upper Room Church than to come and see the ministry first hand!
