CBM activities There has been preaching in Italy since the 1920s, with regular visits starting in 1984, mainly centred on Bologna, Brescia, Milan, Rome and Verona. Correspondence and regular visits provide fellowship with brethren and sisters in isolation, discussions with existing contacts, and attempts are made to reach new contacts. Preaching is through personal contact, fly-billing and special talks. Most brethren and sisters and contacts have English, so language is not a barrier.
