Alliance workers make themselves available to God-seekers through marriage enrichment classes, Bible study, and prayer groups.
Our three international churches—in Toulouse, Paris, and Strasbourg—are experiencing growth. Gateways to French-language ministries,
these churches minister to English-language expatriates as well as to French citizens who are eager to worship in English. French-speaking
study groups are often begun in our church settings.
Outreach efforts are also geared toward reaching France’s massive immigrant population; one such ministry is among the many Chinese
who have made France their home.

are much in demand as well.
The Union of Christian and Missionary Alliance Churches in France today is comprised of 23 organized churches, 2 unorganized, and 1606
23 organized churches, 2 unorganized groups, 13 ordained ministers, 975 baptized members, and 1606 inclusive members.
