Expo-Bible 2012, Houlgate

Wednesday August 8th 2012 to Wednesday August 22nd 2012

Houlgate locationThis year sees the fifth annual Bible Exhibition (Expo-Bible) held at the Eglise Evangélique d’Houlgate (Houlgate Evangelical Church). The previous years have seen over 2,500 visitors given the opportunity to discover the Bible for themselves and we expect around 500 visitors to the Expo again this summer.

Please note the change in the opening date from August 2nd.

The exhibition will take place in le Temple Protestant, home of the Eglise Evangélique de Houlgate which is located right on the edge of the beach in the popular holiday resort of Houlgate, which nestles on the coast a few miles to the east of the cross-channel ferry port of Ouistréham (Caen) and the D-Day landing beaches. It is just to the south of le Havre, the River Seine, Honfleur and Deauville.

The main exhibition panels are supplied by the French Christian organisation France Pour Christ, and supplemented with various other materials.

In addition, there will be Bibles, Gospels, Books, leaflets etc. that will help those who want to find out more about the Bible and its message. Some of these items will be available for visitors to buy. Others will be freely available for visitors to take away - leaflets and individual Gospels for example.

Aims of the Expo-Bible

  • To introduce people to the Bible and through that to present the gospel so that they will come to know the Lord Jesus Christ, put their faith in him, and so be saved.
  • To encourage those who have a Christian faith to grow through reading and studying the Bible.
  • To show those who have a religious background their need for a living faith in a personal, real Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

How can I be involved?

We need people to help out with the exhibition in various ways:

  • Praying for the exhibition, for the people helping to run it, for the visitors who come to see it, that they might be touched by the Bible's message, and discover the one to whom the Bible is pointing.
  • Coming over to Normandy to be personally involved for some or all of the time. There are plenty of tasks that need doing before, during and after the exhibition!
  • Helping with the costs associated with putting on the exhibition and providing all the materials needed.
