Have you heard about the evangelical churches? It is a Christian religious movement related to Protestantism that has grown exponentially in recent years. A new church is born every 10 days.
There are 2,200 in France and about 50 in the Bretagne region. However, these are still relatively unknown churches. In 2010, the National Council of Evangelicals in France was created. The organization now comprises 70% of evangelical churches. It is one way to make more visible the presence of evangelicals in society. Since January 2016, Thierry Le Gall even works among parliamentarians. This role had only previously existed among Catholics.
