In 1988, Tony and Barbara, with four of their six children, moved to Carcassonne, a town of 45,000 inhabitants, in the south of France. Their aim was to help a church in Limoux and to plant a church in Carcassonne.
Over the years, the church plant in Carcassonne has grown slowly but surely. Tony and Barbara retired in 2010. The church has now called a younger pastor to lead the work. In recent years, the church has grown significantly and in 2016 it relocated to large new premises.
