Update on the URC in Milan, Italy

Scott Clark posted this update on the URC work in Milan. (h.t.

"The Rev Dr Andrea Ferrari was recently ordained and installed as pastor of the first United Reformed congregation in Milan, Italy. They have a new website and blog. Just as you’ve been praying for the return of the Reformation to Germany please also pray for the advance of the Reformation to Italy.

As you might imagine the fortunes of the Reformed faith and churches in Italy have not hitherto been glorious but God is gracious and this new congregation (under the oversight of Christ URC, Santee) constitutes a great new opportunity for the evangelical faith as it has been understood and confessed historically to gain a new foothold in Italy. To learn more about this work see Pastor Mike Brown’s powerpoint presentation."
