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.
To everyone who supported our Autumn Fayre on the 8th of September. The day raised more than €500, which will be shared equally between the Chaplaincy and Cancer Support France.

The Second Sunday before Advent
The Readings are:-
Hebrews 10:11-14 [15-18]19-25
The Collect is:
whose blessed Son was revealed
to destroy the works of the devil
and to make us the children of God and heirs of eternal life:
grant that we, having this hope,
may purify ourselves even as he is pure;
that when he shall appear in power and great glory
we may be made like him in his eternal and glorious kingdom;
where he is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Sunday 25th November - 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 .
The Safeguarding Officer for Alet les Bains is Margaret Snow, for further information on the Chaplaincy Safeguarding Policy visit our Safeguarding page.
