For several years we have dreamed of establishing a worship room in the heart of the City of Caen. Now at last a premises has become available and the "Maison des Chants" is within sight. Once established, the worship room will:
- Offer a rhythm of worship and prayer for the city.
- Provide a gathering space of the Caen expression of Bless Church - a growing international church.
- Provide a base for Bless interns working in the city, and for prayer and planning for our SOS CHAI ministry to refugees.
"La Maison des Chants" - The House of Songs is an ancient Persian name for Heaven, and our longing is to release the songs of heaven over our city. We want each person - young and old; French and non-French; resident and refugee - to hear the song that God is singing over them, and to join with us in singing back our praise.
As a recent song says, "I've come to breathe life on dry bones, just like I've seen my Father do. To celebrate they're coming home: before they even start to move!"
To set up the House of Songs, we are raising €2600 for a deposit and legal fees, €2000 in set-up costs and €1000 per month in rent, utilities and insurances. To join the support team of this exciting project you can give now to our set-up costs, or commit to a monthly share of the running costs.
