About Us

The idea came about a little over a year ago at the I.C.S. Chaplain’s conference, where Revd. Bob Hurley, The Chaplain of Grenoble Church, came up with the idea for a new kind of Christian Holiday called Provence Praise.

He shared it with others, including John Coles, director of New Wine, Richard Bromley, mission director of I.C.S. and The Bishop of Europe as well as with several other chaplains.  Everyone felt that it was a great idea, so we set a date and had our first Provence Praise last July.

Through our exciting holiday program, Provence Praise aims to gather English speaking Christians of all ages and denominations for a week of spiritual refreshment, rest and recreation in one of the most beautiful areas of France.

Bob is Assisted by Rev. Ben Harding, the chaplain of Lyon, Emma Randall (Administrator) and an international team.
