Our ministry covers an area from the Aveyron to the Aude and from the Lot into Tarn and Garonne, including the Tarn, Haute Garonne and Ariège.
We are an Anglican Chaplaincy and part of the Church of England Diocese in Europe.
There has been an Anglican presence here in this part of France since the early 1960's. In the last five decades this has developed into the present day Chaplaincy with seven worship centres and a large ministry team led by the Chaplain, Canon Andrew Hawken.
All guests who present themselves are to be received as Christ, for He will say: I was a stranger and you took me in. ( St Matthew ) The Rule of St Benedict
We are a scattered community and people drive long distances to attend church on a Sunday morning or afternoon. Our worship styles reflect the diversity of those who come, as not all are Anglicans by any means.
Common Worship Services
...open the way for people in the varied circumstances of their lives to experience the love of God in Jesus Christ in the life and power of the Holy Spirit. Preface to Common Worship
The Holy Communion is celebrated regularly throughout the Chaplaincy using Common Worship but often with a variety of hymns and music reflecting our different church backgrounds. We also celebrate life in all its wonder and fullness through Baptism and Marriage and at the end of life with a Service of Thanksgiving or a Funeral.
Come and See
If you have recently moved to this part of France to live or work, if you are just passing through or here on holiday look at the interactive map to find your nearest worship centre.
Elise Johnston has designed some more Christmas cards exclusively for the Chaplaincy. The cards are professionally printed and delivered with envelopes, there is no verse inside, so you will be able to personalise each card for its recipient. Cards cost 1.00€ each and all profit goes to church funds, so this is a really worthwhile cause.
Please look at these samples and buy your cards from your local churchwarden, who has a stock available, that way you will avoid postage and be sure to have your cards in good time.
As you will see some cards have already sold out, so don't delay, buy today.

We are conducting a short, anonymous survey inviting our parishioners to comment on what 3 Good Things within our Chaplaincy that you would like us to continue and also what 3 things you would like us to begin or change. Please speak to any of our Clergy, a Churchwarden or any member of your local Church Council.
