Paris, March 2012 Dear friends in Jesus, France is considered as one of the most secularized country in the world. Meanwhile God has not let it down yet.
Over the last few years, French Christians have started to pray harder and harder. As a result, we are now witnessing a fresh renewal and a certain growth. Facing huge challenges, we are looking for partners in prayer, in vision, in ministries and in finance. Thank you for considering our request.
Best regards in the Lord Pastor Franck Lefillatre
Our church Since 1936, our church is committed to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ right in the heart of Paris. In the early 70's, the church was able to acquire an old factory a few meters to the Place de la Bastille, known worldwide for its revolutionary history. Since the arrival of Pastor Franck Lefillatre in 2008, Bastille Square Church has entered a new phase of her ministry. We believe this is just the beginning of a whole new story to write...
Our community reflects the people of Paris, a cosmopolitan city of 11 million inhabitants. Our church is composed of many young adults and people from many different nations.
Our commitment While maintaining an emphasis on strong preaching and Holy Spirit life, Bastille Square Church is resolutely focused on reaching the many young adults living in Paris. A pastoral staff has been formed and the church is experiencing a wonderful growth. www.monegliseaparis.fr
Our growth In the last four years, the membership of the church has more than doubled from 250 adults to over 600. As our capacity is limited to 280 seats, we have multiplied Sunday services up to three.
Our challenge We are now facing a challenge of renovating and upgrading our facilities to the best standards as a testimony for the Kingdom of God to Parisians. The total cost of the project (evaluation made by an architect) is reaching 700.000€. The detail is exposed in a chart below.
Our need The church is already involved in this project. Up to now, we have raised more than 100.000€. We still need at least 600.000€ and we are looking for partners sharing the same dream and this heart for France that Jesus and we have.
