Peter & Silje Lilly

We are passionate about seeing the presence of Christ transform and challenge culture, and the love of Christ heal and give purpose to people’s lives.

Silje grew up right here in Montpellier, and we have had a heart for France for a long time. Montpellier has been the fastest growing city in France for the last 25 years and is a young and vibrant student city. We left the UK in May 2015 with a vision to reach and disciple secular French people, and have been making friends with atheists and skeptics ever since.

Our aim is to embed into this community using, art, music, sport, philosophical discussion, board games, meals, family life etc. to make friends and witness to the love and transforming power of Christ. Passionate about discipleship and theology, we want who we are in relationship and what we say in conversation to challenge people’s secular worldview, lead them towards Jesus and into a community of new disciples. We are also creating a website of apologetics resources written intentionally for the french context, to go live early in 2019.
