The church was founded in 1995. Several families traveled from the city of Smila to Cherkassy for the service of the “Good News” Church. Then we began to gather at the home of one family on the outskirts of the city, but as the church grew rapidly due to the spread of the Gospel message, we rented a building where the church meets until now.


The vision of the “Good News” Church:

1. Closer to God
2. Closer to each other
3. Serving the world

The church is an active organizer of the charitable and evangelistic activities. They include:

  • Charity ministry for children in orphanages.
  • Evangelical projects for children in districts of the city and in the villages (playing with children, giving gifts, sharing the gospel with their parents).
  • Ministry for elderly people (people over 55).
  • Youth projects for the youth of the city.
  • Charity for disable children.
  • Ministry for refugees.
  • Ministry and help to people living in front-line areas.
  • Volunteer help to soldiers in the area of military operations, Capellan ministry, etc.
