The Union Church, a denomination officially recognized by the Libyan government, has rented a building from the government since the church’s original building was seized in the 1970s. Since 2011, the government has returned stolen properties to their original owners, including the building the Union Church now rents. In December 2020, the original owners of the Union Church’s building applied to evict the church from the building, and a court granted the eviction in February 2022. The Union Church has tried unsuccessfully to reach an agreement with the building’s owners to rent or purchase the building from them.

  • Pray that the brothers and sisters in this church will experience the peace of God as they face the loss of their building.

  • Pray that God will provide another space for the congregation to gather in worship.
