Preparations are in full swing for a major congress bringing together around 3,000 young Christians from around Europe.

Mission-Net is held every two years and takes place this year in Offenburg, Germany, from 28 December to 2 January.

The congress is organised by the European Evangelical Alliance and the European Evangelical Mission Association to inform young Christians about global mission challenges and inspire them to be part of God's plan for the world.

This year's theme is "Work in Progress" and features talks by guest speakers, including New Zealander Jeff Fountain.

There will be Bible studies on the book of Nehemiah and performances by the Spanish mime artist Carlos Martinez. There will also be opportunities for outreach in the centre of Offenburg.
