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.
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.
