Transformation: Villedômer

Villedômer is a village the Indre-et-Loire department of central France. With a population of just 1500, the village is nonetheless a significant crossroads for many people. It is just 23km from Tours, the regional capital, and is a gateway to the Loire Valley, whose Chateaux attract tourists in their millions.

Based at ‘L’Orangerie de Beauregard‘ – a camp-site and language school – our Villedômer church-plant will seek to love and serve the location in three distinct ways:

  • In partnership with the local Catholic churches, we will host and help to run Alpha courses, offering local people the opportunity to explore the meaning of the Christian faith.
  • Through mission teams and interns sent from Bethanie, we will bless and serve children, young people and others in the area, through holiday clubs, concerts and other activities.
  • Through the kingdom-orientation of the businesses that host the church – our campsite and language school – we will seek to love, serve and bless all those who come to stay: in the hope that beneath the hospitality we offer they would sense the deeper welcome of their loving creator.
