Going Home

Team France is now writing to you from back in UK! If you didn’t know already, we have been pulled out of France early due to the steadily worsening situation across the globe, brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. So that you’re all in the loop with the latest events of our adventure, sit back […]

Nice To See You, To See You…

Nice! Team France has had the absolute pleasure of spending the last 9 days down on the south coast of France, so stick around for a brief insight into our time there, what we got up to and some of the brilliant people we met… SATURDAY This was our travel day, and the ever-organised Team […]

1 Corinthians 3:6

Recently, Team France had the pleasure of attending a day-long church planters’ gathering (courtesy of the Fédération des Églises Évangéliques Baptistes de France, or French Baptist Federation) and thought we’d share a little of our experience!

A Week in the Life…

Now that we’re getting into the flow of things, we thought it might be interesting for you to walk a week in our chaussures… MONDAY Unlike most people, we all love Monday on Team France because we get to start the week with a day off! Sadly, adult jobs, like doing a food shop and […]

Connexion 2019

Last weekend Team France had the exciting opportunity of helping out at Connexion, a Christian youth event which takes place every other year. We had a a lot of fun and wanted to take the time to tell you all about it! We arrived at the boarding school in Poitiers, (where the event was being […]
