The World Horizons France team consists of families and individuals, with both ex-pats from across the world and French nationals. They live in the north, south and west of France. Their work includes reaching out to students, running Alpha courses and discipleship groups, teaching English, children’s and youth work, prayer initiatives and proposing other activities for the local community. They work alongside French churches and local associations.
Our team near Biarritz is focused on supporting the local church through children’s and youth ministries, as well as building relationships with local people through events, and hospitality. They are also sharing their faith with the international surfing community; many from this background who had turned their back on God are beginning to return to faith.
In Marseille, our team member works with a local church and inter-church groups to reach out to the French and immigrant communities through prayer, English teaching, outreach, a children’s club and other activities.
Horizons France members based in and around Lille are involved in student work, initiating and hosting interdenominational prayer gatherings, running Alpha courses and organizing other activities in the local community plus being involved in a church plant.
Other members of the France team minister to local and national authorities, through prayer and support. Many team members also have some form of employment as a means of both supporting themselves financially and sharing their faith through the building of relationships with local people. All our ministries are looking for people to help. If you are interested in serving with us or would like to find out more, please let us know.
Our multi-national team has been involved in ministry to the people of Spain for over 30 years. We work in several locations in the south of the country, focusing on planting churches and supporting the leadership of evangelical fellowships. Though Spain has long had a strong Catholic presence, secularism is on the rise. We are looking for people to come and join our teams as they seek to reach out to the next generation.
Our teams based across Extremadura and Andalucía are excited to see how God is at work in these regions. We have seen a number of individuals come to faith and are looking for more people to come and work with us in youth and family ministries. Could you use your skills or interests as a way to build friendships within the local community? We are also looking for young adults to come and be a witness to those in their peer group.
In Andalucía, other elements of our work are friendship evangelism among immigrant communities, church ministry and hospitality. We are sharing the Gospel with those from Latin American backgrounds living in the region, and there are also exciting opportunities to witness to the great number of North Africans in the country. There is great potential to make new friends and share your faith as you integrate into the Spanish culture.

Join Our Teams in Europe
There are short-term opportunities for you to serve alongside our teams in both France and the United Kingdom. The program offered in these countries includes language learning, community living, supporting the local church and participating in regular team ministries while using your individual skills to help with various projects.
Our teams in Europe also receive those that want to join their team on a long-term placement. Prior to going to the field, new team members must complete one of our long-term training programs. Once on the field, they generally spend their first two years focused on language learning while engaging in ministries established by the long-term team. Whichever country new members join, they will focus from the beginning on encouraging local Christians and getting to know non-Christians through the team’s ministries.
