Gibraltar (34,000) is a British overseas territory since its capture in 1704, but self-governing since 2007. Most of the population are Catholic, but other denominations have churches. Evangelicals/charismatics have small numbers, but grow. Significant numbers of Moroccans work here, as well as Jewish and Hindu communities. Gibraltar has a good position for outreach to the region (southern Spain and North Africa), as well as to locals, immigrants, and foreign tourists. Pray that local congregations will gain vision for outreach!
The Brexit process in the UK calls into question Gibraltar's own future and governance. Gibraltarians are passionate about their own autonomy and self-determination on the issue. Pray that the people of this enclave would not put undue faith in their own autonomy, but would faith in the Lord of Lords.
