The church of St Luke in Ras al Khaimah – one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates - has a new Urdu-language, Anglican congregation.
Revd Daniel Sadiq celebrates Holy Communion every Friday afternoon for the Urdu speaking community. A spokesperson for the church said; “This new Anglican congregation is growing and we are blessed to share in fellowship with the Nepalis, Punjabis, and Pakistanis living in the area. At the Easter Vigil and the Feast of the Pentecost we had baptisms followed by a vegetable biryani dinner. St Luke, RAK is grateful to Revd Daniel, his family, and the Labour Camp Ministry hosted at St Martin’s Sharjah for supporting the people of Ras al Khaimah. All over this land, the Spirit is moving.”
