The Bless Network is a Christian missional movement working for the transformation of Europe. Bless enables believers to discover and develop the powerful connection between the inner, personal transformation of a surrendered heart and the wider, outer transformation of our world. Their founding purpose is to transform the lives of people in Europe by empowering Christians, through prayer, creativity and strategic partnerships, to live for the service of others.


Bless has planted a number of churches in France with their character being international, ecumenical and missional. Bilingual groups are currently active in Livarot, Caen and Villedômer, Tours. Their goal is to initiate and resource church gatherings that lead people to deepen their faith, to grow in their gifting and to increase their impact on the community in which they are placed.

SOS Chai – refugee work

Since Easter 2017 we have been serving a weekly, hot meal with coffee, tea, games and friendship to a group of around 80 Sudanese migrants. Bless and iTeams NL have opportunities available for people to join their team to serve the refugees - contact us on  for further information. 


Bethanie is the Bless base located near Caen in Normandy, France. It is an engine room for transformation that is Personal, Relational, Cultural, Social and Global.

Bless run a number of events and programmes at Bethanie that empower individuals to find their place in God’s purposes. Among other activities two of their main programs are their Boot Camp and The Seven Stories school of worship and mission.

Boot Camp is aimed at young adults, with a target age-range of 18-30, though it remains open to others on interview. It has two components:

  • A teaching camp lasting 10 days at Bethanie, followed by
  • An optional 6-day missions trip.

The Seven Stories is open to all those over 18, and take place twice-yearly, in March and September. Each school involves:

  • A 14-day worship and learning experience at Bethanie.
  • Optionally extended with a placement to make a 3, 6 or 9 month internship.

Through these and a range of other training opportunities, Bless empowers believers from across the world to embrace the inner change God offers and to become, in turn, agents of change in their world.

iTeams NL is the Bless partner for The Netherlands. If you would like to learn more about Bless and the opportunities to participate in one of their events or are interested in serving with them then contact us on:
