Lauren Moore, a graduate from Ridley College Melbourne, has been serving with Pioneers in South West France since 2008. Even before she moved to France, she always sense a strong desire to serve where the workers were especially few, rural areas, small churches and forgotten people groups.
In 2015, after having served in existing churches (Eglise Baptiste de la Côte Basque) and church plants (SurfChurch Hossegor), she set off to start a team and a church, in the city of Lourdes. Although it’s mostly a rural area, Lourdes hosts over 5 million Catholic pilgrims annually, who come to ask the Virgin Mary to bring healing. Lauren’s church-plant, Les Cairns, was officially launched at Christmas 2016. Now, with Les Cairns safely in the hands of the Lord and local believers, Lauren is back on the coast, serving in preaching, worship and support roles across all three churches.
Lauren is Australian, and for fun she enjoys running marathons, songwriting and baking (check out her baking page on Facebook).
