Welcome to the Reformed Church of Le Marais, Paris
This part of Paris is well known for its historic sites, its night life, its Jewish Quarter and of course it’s so close to the Bastille. Welcome to the heart of this great city, and … the heart of the Gospel.

The Lord is truly at the centre of our lives and so of course we praise and worship Him. We hold a service every Sunday morning at 10:30. This is a time for us to meet together in fellowship for a time of prayer, teaching and worship. It’s a time when we can give glory to our Heavenly Father.
Here you can also take part in Worship in an African style at 1pm, in Japanese at 4pm or in Arabic at 6pm every Sunday.
We also have a range of activities which take place throughout the week, such as topical discussions, a prayer group and Bible study.
So come and visit us!

We desire to be a community that welcomes everyone, and most of all we seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus in Paris for those around us. Our ministry recognises and celebrates the rich history that this church and the Reformed Church in France brings to Christianity. At the same time we strive to include all generations in our worship by showing that faith in Jesus Christ is relevant for everyone: children, youth, adults and the elderly.
As a Church community, with the help of God, we seek to be a community which:
1. Lives a life full of faith and joy
– in prayer as individuals and as a church
– in true fellowship
– in dynamic ministry
2. Clearly proclaims the Love of the Father, the Gospel of Jesus and the Power of the Holy Spirit
– by the quality gathered worship
– by walking together and growing in spiritual maturity
– by being a prophetic witness in the world
3. Welcomes and strengthens
– young people, newcomers, long-term members and the elderly
– our neighbours and those who are marginalized by society
– our cultural, architectural and Huguenot (Protestant) heritage
“ We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.” 2 Corinthians 5v20
