The Vine Church (in French “le CEP”), located in St Loup in the 10th district of Marseille has seen significant growth since its founding in 2002. It was initially started by a church planting team with GLO, an Australian mission. It began in a lounge and has now reached 120 people in regular attendance.
Much of that growth has been through singles and young families, mostly of French background. In recent years, God has given us a clearer vision of a church that is growing both in number and in maturity. Local evangelism and discipleship has also been expanding and seeing fruit. Thanks be to the Lord!
The need for a new building goes along with this vision. While we are thankful for the growth we have seen, we are now faced with the challenge of a sanctuary that is too small. We’ve also had a need for a more Sunday school classrooms. God has provided temporary solutions, including a nearby school. But it has become abundantly clear that we need a larger and more suitable facility.
