Please pray for Europe and Hope for Europe who seek to reach this continent in new and wonderful ways by His grace in the 21st Century!

Here are 48 countries and territories of Europe with some general information and links to their Home Pages and maps. When you see "Multiple Listings" beside a country, it means you will go to a more general page first where you can choose specific cultural, social, political, tourist, etc., entry points.

Regarding the Religious statistics below, many countries of Europe have an official state church (religion). Unless otherwise registered, the population statistics simply lump everyone into the state church grouping. Both church attendance and biblical belief are much below the numbers listed. However, this will give you a rough idea of breakdowns and canton.

BTW, we do have contacts in most of these countries, so let us know if we can help link you to friendly locals.
