Who we are?


« To be a community of men and women of every age and of all nations, filled with the life of Jesus, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and demonstrating to the world the love, grace and wisdom of God”

We are part of the Newfrontiers family of churches, which is made up of around 800 churches in more than 60 nations.


Esperance des Nations

Founded in October 2004, the Evangelical Protestant Church Espérance des Nations is a community of men, women, children and young people, of a wide range of nationalities: ordinary people… who have met with an extraordinary God.

Our desire is to celebrate together our new life with God and to lead others to do the same. With this aim, we meet from 10am every Sunday to worship God by singing worship songs, to pray and to listen to Bible teaching. We believe that the model of Church life in the New Testament of the Bible is still relevant today, therefore we expect to see God at work in the meetings.We would be delighted to welcome you if you live in the region of Rennes, if you have come here to study, or if you are passing through. Don’t hesitate to contact us by sending us an email and we will reply as soon as possible.

We also work in partnership with an international family of churches, Newfrontiers, which keeps us in touch with what God is doing everywhere in the world, and supports us in our activity in the local area.
