Albanians living in the United Kingdom number around 41,500. Their population is largely clustered in or around London—adding to the city’s already diverse culture. They are considered unengaged and unreached, which means that they are less than 2% evangelical Christian without an active church planting strategy among them.
Globally, this group totals 1,138,500 in 7 countries. The primary religion practiced by the Albanians is Folk Islam, a syncretistic belief system that blends traditional elements of Islam with superstitious practices such as warding off spirits with incantations and magic amulets, and reciting verses of the Qur’an to bring about miraculous healings.
Will you join IMB workers in praying that the Albanians in London would hear the gospel message and choose to follow Jesus?
