From 1949 to 1953, thousands of young people participated in the construction of the first buildings of Crêt-Bérard under the leadership of Pastor Albert Girardeau. He made an appeal to the Waldensian youth to help him build a place of retreat in order to help Christians grow in their faith. Today Crêt-Bérard continues to do this but is also open to many other groups and individuals to use their facilities. I spent a wonderful afternoon finding out about the centre with Neil Wallace who attends the Scots Kirk in Lausanne. This podcasts reflects a little of that afternoon.
