Rugul Aprins means 'Burning Bush' in English. It's the name of one of the main international Roma Pentecostal denominations.  

The home church is in Toflia in East Romania, but there are daughter churches right across Europe.  Our Rugal Aprins in Luton is one of them and currently meets on Sundays at 18.00.  Our church leader is Ioan Bobiica, better known as just "Vasile".  His work is overseen by pastor Bumbac, who comes regularly to make sure work is progressing well. He and other pastors come to take communion and baptise.  Our Rugul Aprins in Luton is led entirely by the Roma themselves.  Luton Roma Trust supports this work.
