Châtelet, a bustling hub in the very heart of Paris, has long been known for its jazz clubs and vibrant nightlife. For over a century, this area has swung to the rhythms of jazz luminaries such as Bud Powell, Chet Baker, Miles Davis, Django Reinhardt, Cab Calloway, Christian McBride, and Dizzy Gillespie.
It was out of the ashes of a rundown jazz club that the Genesis Centre was born in 2004. Since then, Genesis has hosted everything from art nights to worship nights, karaoke to documentary screenings, language exchanges to game nights, bible studies to the Alpha course, and a whole lot more. There are a great number of people who will spend an eternity with Christ because of the activities that continue to happen there on a weekly basis.
Genesis is located near the Châtelet metro stop, exit #13
