Beach mission in Portugal is a hit with families
For the first time ever, United Beach Missions (UBM) were invited to run a beach mission on The Algarve, Portugal
For the first time ever, United Beach Missions (UBM) were invited to run a beach mission on The Algarve, Portugal. The pilot week was run on the Praia da Rocha (Portimão) in early July following an invitation from a local church and the local authorities.
A small team of six, including three non-Portuguese speakers, reached out to holidaymakers with Bible stories and fun activities. Many families returned to the mission each day. The programmes were run in English with Portuguese translation.
UBM is hoping that they will be invited to run more beach missions on Portugal’s beaches in the future.
