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.

Christ the King
The Readings are:-
The Collect is:
whose Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven
that he might rule over all things as Lord and King:
keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit
and in the bond of peace,
and bring the whole created order to worship at his feet;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Sunday 3rd December - 10h30 - Holy Communion celebrated by Canon Tony Jewiss
This Christmas, we are once again selling Christmas Cards designed by the late Elise Johnston 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.
Some of the cards are in short supply, so don't delay; order now and you won't be disappointed!

The next meeting of the House Group will be on Tuesday 21st. November at the home of Martin and Jane Hunt in Antugnac. We start at 10.00am. Tea/coffee and biscuits are served from 11.30am and the meeting will finish at midday.
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 .
