TIme to leave the POC megachurch... But before saying good-bye, let's emphasize the young age of many attenders. The average worshipper in a French megachurch could be around 35. It is not difficult to understand why local Lutheran churches in Mulhouse have been infuriated: although they benefit from State money and from public respectability, they only attract a few old people. Grey hair and empty pews.
While the POC megachurch attracts more people in a single sunday (with lots of teens and twenty-something) that all other traditional protestant churches in the erea combined. Shocking!
(notice that these POC pics have been taken from the POC website in 2005).
The POC website (technically excellent) is: http://www.porte-ouverte.com/
