We have been meeting in the Limoux area since 2004. Since March 2012, we worship at L’Eglise Saint André, Alet les Bains.
Our regular congregation is about 25 adults; for festivals and special occasions this increases. Our Carol Service in December attracts between 60 and 100 people. We are an all-age congregation.
The Assistant Chaplain, Canon Tony Jewiss, or another priest in the ministry team celebrates Holy Communion Common Worship twice a month on the first and third Sundays. On the other Sundays the Lay Readers or Congregation Worship Leaders conduct our worship. All members of the congregation are encouraged to participate, to read lessons, make music, share with the children, or serve coffee and light refreshments after services.
We welcome all who seek an English-speaking church, whether as a regular place of worship, respite from the tourist trail, or a place to bring their special need.

The Readings are:-
The Collect is:
Almighty and everlasting God,
you have given us your servants grace,
by the confession of a true faith,
to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity
and in the power of the divine majesty to worship the Unity:
keep us steadfast in this faith,
that we may evermore be defended from all adversities;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Sunday 3rd June - 10h30 - Morning Prayer led by Clive & Linda Billenness
Praying for each other
Prayer is an important part of our Christian lives; it unites us as a body. We do keep a book of prayer requests. If you have a prayer request for yourself or someone else and are unable to enter it into the book yourself please pass it on to Bob and he will either write it in the Prayer book and/or let the person leading intercessions know so they can include it.
Each Sunday we take up a collection of packets and tins of food for distribution by Secours Catholique in Quillan. Secours Catholique strives to meet the needs of the poor locally. Please remember them as you give generously.
Please send any copy for future notices by Wednesday in any given week to Aude Church Notices .
