The following is a description of a ministry project of Impact France in collaboration with the CAEF.
L’Assemblée Protestante Evangélique de Saint-Etienne (APESE) is honored to be one of only a few evangelical churches in its area which has a population of over 400,000 people. Our congregation is energetic and multi-generational, almost half of congregation are under 16 ! We are outgrowing our current space, which is not well-heated. In order to support growth and reach more of the city, we are raising funds to purchase a new building, with which we can better:
– Welcome more people comfortably throughout the year
– Help the impoverished members of our community through food distribution networks
– Assist and welcome our African refugee friends
– Reach out to the youth of Saint-Etienne through our scout group and upcoming youth group
– Start a ministry for university students which does not currently exist in the area despite a population of over 28,000)
– Serve as a launch point for church plants and house groups to the north in the Plaine du Forez
– Support our sister church in Yssingeaux
While certain costs are still being negotiated, the total project is estimated at €310,000.
Please prayerfully consider partnering with us to help us shine the Lord’s light brighter in our city!
