We have been meeting in the Limoux area since 2004. alet égliseSince March 2012, we have worshipped at L’Eglise Saint André, Alet les Bains (although in the winter we move to a warmer venue (please see below).

Our regular congregation is about 25 adults; for festivals and special occasions this increases. Our Carol Service in December attracts between 150 and 200 people. We welcome Christians of all denominations and ages. If you normally receive communion in your own church, you are welcome to receive communion with us.

Our Assistant Chaplain, Canon Tony Jewiss, or our Chaplain (or another priest in the Ministry Team) normally celebrates Holy Communion Common Worship twice a month on the first and third Sundays (although please check the diary below on this page as this can change). On the other Sundays our  Lay Readers or Congregation Worship Leaders lead our worship. All members of the congregation are encouraged to participate in our worship, or serve coffee and light refreshments after services.

We welcome all who seek an English-speaking church, whether as a regular place of worship, a respite from the tourist trail, or a place to bring their special need.

God our redeemer,
you have delivered us
from the power of darkness
and brought us into the
kingdom of your Son:
grant, that as by his death
he has recalled us to life,
so by his continual presence
in us he may raise us
to eternal joy;
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.

Alet Church Mission Planning Day - 26th May 2019

On the 26th May, we will be holding a special all-day event to consider the shape of our future mission as a worshipping community.
The day will begin with a short service at 10h30, after which we will move to the Mediatheque next door to work together under the
guidance of a guest facilitator to develop a vision and plan for the future.
We will enjoy a bring-and-share lunch (some wine will be provided !) before resuming our deliberations.
The day is expected to end at about 15h00, with a short Communion Service, to be celebrated by Rev Canon Tony Jewiss which will start at about 14h30.
Whether you are a regular member of our congregation,  an occasional visitor or planning to make a single visit that day, you are most welcome to join us and contribute to our thinking.
If you are coming, however, please bring your own 'couvert' (Knife, fork, spoon, plate, water and wine glasses).  Please also bring a contribution to the Bring & Share Lunch (sucré or salé equally welcome)

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.  


Secours Catholique

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 .

Follow the road to the right – L’Eglise St. André is on the right side directly after passing the Abbey ruins.

For the final time this winter, on 24 March we will be meeting in the restaurant at Les Marguerites in Rue Nicolas Pavillon (see map above) and not in the Church. Continue up the road going past the turn to Place Des Platanes (but not taking it) towards the Casino. Les Marguerites is on the left after about 200m. There is a board outside to indicate that we are meeting there. There is plenty of on-street parking outside.
