Thank you for interceding for Türkiye;
Our greatest prayer is that God's mercy and love will be seen in action in this land.

In the aftermath of February’s devastating earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria, Christians have been showing God’s love to survivors of the catastrophe. One moving example is the members of a Church in Türkiye, who drove 14 hours to cook meals, distribute clothes, and spend time with those impacted by the earthquakes. Christians from other parts of the world, including South Africa, joined them, helping in the emergency relief. Much voluntary assistance will be needed for a very long time to come, e.g encouraging, cooking meals and building tent houses. They are looking for people who are willing to come in overlapping teams for periods of two or more weeks.

History of the Christian Church in Türkiye

Two out of the five centers (Patriarchates) of the ancient Pentarchy are in Türkiye: Constantinople (Istanbul) and Antioch (Antakya). Antioch was also the place where the followers of Jesus were called "Christians" for the first time in history, as well as being the site of one of the earliest and oldest surviving churches, established by Saint Peter himself. For a thousand years, the Hagia Sophia was the largest church in the world.
Türkiye is also home to the Seven Churches of Asia, where the Revelation to John was sent. Apostle John is reputed to have taken Virgin Mary to Ephesus in western Türkiye, where she spent the last days of her life in a small house, known as the House of the Virgin Mary, which still survives today and has been recognized as a holy site for pilgrimage.
All of the first seven Ecumenical Councils which are recognized by both the Western and Eastern churches were held in present-day Türkiye. Of these, the Nicene Creed, declared with the First Council of Nicaea (İznik) in 325, is of utmost importance and has provided the essential definitions of present-day Christianity.
