For 20 years The Forge has been visiting Croatia to support our partner church in Sirač.


Since the war of the early 90’s, this remote area of Croatia has seen some considerable change but The Forge has committed to standing alongside Sirač Baptist Church as they live out their faith there.

Sirac is a small town of about 2,500 people and the Baptist church is keen to have an impact in the community. In partnering with the church we help run a children’s holiday club each summer and an outreach football tournament each Spring. The 242 youth congregation have adopted Croatia as their very own global link and it’s a great trip for people to make overseas if you’ve not done a trip before.

In 2012 we sent Ash Stannard there on a long term arrangement to work with the church, specifically amongst the young people.


18th – 28th August 2019. Cost £500*

Join our 242 team travelling to Sirac to support the Baptist Church in running a holiday club for local children. You’ll need lots of energy and enthusiasm and the ability to just get stuck in. we specifically encourage our young people to go on this trip, but we’ll take anyone (well within reason!). Applicants need to be aged over 13. 2018 is our 20th anniversary of partnering with Sirac Baptist Church and so this year will include a special celebration weekend where we look back on all that God has done. With this is mind we’re keen for past team members to also join us this year, if not for the whole trip how about the second weekend? If you’re interested in this please get in touch with Becky Warnock.

*Price includes return flights from London – Zagreb, transfers (both UK and Croatia), accommodation with host families, food and insurance.
