FROM THE GOSPEL COALITION:
The Evangelical Church is Growing in Ireland
According to an article written by Jonny Grant and Patti Richter for The Gospel Coalition entitled Reaching Ireland for Christ — Again, only about 0.5 percent of the Republic of Ireland’s population is evangelical and it is the least evangelized country in Europe.

Those factors contributed to the establishment and growth of gospel-centered churches scattered throughout the Republic of Ireland. Today there are over 240 evangelical churches with an average attendance of about 80 people. And now, Irish evangelicals are catching a vision to plant churches where Christ is not yet known and to support Christian workers in other countries.
