The Bless Network has a 20-year history of training and mobilizing short-term teams. We emphasize growth in worship, personal faith development, and missional engagement through a life of service to others. Bless short-term placements are an opportunity go deeper in experiencing God’s heart for you, and to learn through hands-on experience what it means to cross borders in mission – whether they are the boundaries of geography and language or of the limitations you have set yourself.
In Caen we are working towards transformation in the former docks area, known as Caen Presqu'île. We have opportunities in refugee ministry, working with trafficked women, environmental impact projects and outreach to the general population. In addition our missional church-plant provides opportunities in worship, children's work and youth and student ministries.
Our residential center, Bethanie, is just 45km outside the city and provides a base for training, prayer, and when needed, team accommodation. Placements run for 3 months (90 days), with an initial 10 day training block at Bethanie.
