Looking for a good pentecostal church in Lausanne

Preferrably close to the commune of Chavannes-pres-Renens.
And FRENCH!
Can anyone help me find one?

Thank you!

Re: Looking for a good pentecostal church in Lausanne

Hoe do you define a 'good' one from a 'bad' one? There are several Anglican/English Churches on the Riviera- surely that is more or less the same (as was explained to me by my Pentacostal Minister cousin in NJ).

Re: Looking for a good pentecostal church in Lausanne

Tonio, to find a pentacostal church you probably should look at the 'free' (églises libres) churches, as opposed to the traditional Swiss protestant (reformed) church. Here's a list (probably not wholly inclusive) of the free churches throughout Switzerland, hopefully there will be one offering what you seek:

more or less just meant a church that looks like it belongs in the 21st century and has a good number of people who show up on Sunday service. I think I found one: http://www.egliselagrace.ch/

Re: Looking for a good pentecostal church in Lausanne

Here is a link to a really good church:

http://www.lausanne-english-church.com

I have visited it three times until now and loved to hear Alan Hill preaching. Conservative, baptist-like church, but very bible-oriented.

Well as someone else has mentioned it...

Please do come and join us for worship on Sunday at 10:30. After the service we will be heading to Montpreveyres for a bring-and-share picnic. There is always plenty of food from a wide variety of cultures!

However, just to clarify, we're not pentecostal... not according to my understanding of the word. And we are an English-speaking church.

Not forgetting our free Coffee Morning on Wednesday mornings between 9:30 and noon. Open to anyone who wants to have a chat in English - whether you're a native speaker looking for the sound of home or someone looking to practice their English conversation. Children very welcome.
