We have been worshipping in Cahors since 1964. Our congregation started with home-meetings and has met over the years in two Roman Catholic chapels. We now worship in the chapel of the Roman Catholic Centre Paroissial in Terre Rouge every Sunday morning at 10.00. We attract an average congregation of 40 or more, some members travelling 60 kms to be with us on Sundays. Services on the major festivals are well-attended, our Christmas Carol services being especially popular.
Members contribute to our worship by helping to lead services, reading, and serving refreshments. Bring and Share lunches, for example after the local AGM in February/March and after pre-Lent and Harvest Festival services, are regular features on the calendar. There are also several Home Groups active in offering fellowship and building connections, and we hope to establish groups in other areas.
Under the leadership of the Revd June Hutchinson, Assistant Chaplain for the Chaplaincy, our church continues to develop, with growing participation in social activities within the wider community. This is a great place to live, and our worship and fellowship really add to the experience.
Do join us.

Christ the King

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.

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!

Over the last ten years or so, three home groups have been established in and around Cahors — Cahors, Montaigu de Quercy, and Basse Vallée. All meet weekly during Advent and Lent, and fortnightly during the remainder of the year. Numbers in the groups vary greatly over the year as visitors come and go, but six to eight at any meeting is a good average. All groups are flourishing, and give us the opportunity to explore our faith centred on a mix of Bible reading and other texts, in the company of others of like mind. The home-groups also provide a ready source of mutual help and support.
