We worship in the Roman Catholic church of Notre Dame de l’Assomption, rue Clausade, in the Minimes Parish, close to the Barrière de Paris Metro station. every Sunday at 10.30. We hold a variety of modern and traditional services with music by our Music Group. There is Sunday Club and Junior Worship for all ages, with crêche facilities. The active and very popular Guides and Scouts groups in the area come as welcome visitors from time to time.
We are a mix of young families and retirees. The current congregation averages around 40, plus 20 children, with larger numbers at major festivals. Our Christingle, Carols and Christmas Communion services, as well as the Sunday School Nativity Play are very popular.
Parts of the service are presented in French when there are French-only speakers in the congregation. Everyone is welcome. Do come and join us!

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.

We have temporarily suspended Sunday Club and Junior Worship due to the lack of youngsters. As a result, all ages will be present at all our services and we will endeavour to take this into consideration with toys, colouring, word search and the like, being made available.
We meet on the 1st Sunday of each month, while the adults have their service in the main part of the Church.
It is based on the All Age Family service sheet but adapted for children and young people. Though adults are present, the young people are encouraged to lead the service and read prayers and bible readings themselves.
There are lots of songs to sing, both traditional ones and new ones with actions and even some with dance steps! There is a time of teaching which usually includes some fun and interaction.
The framework of the service is the same each month, but with new topical thoughts and prayers, the children can then take home their colourful service pamphlet and song sheet.
We welcome children aged from 3 -13 and parents are more than welcome to stay with them. At the end of our service we go into main church to tell and show the rest of the congregation what we've been doing.
For more information contact unfilled at the moment.
Come and join one of our friendly groups (there are two – 4 to 9 years and 10 to 13 years) on every 2nd and 4th Sunday in the month - like school, it's in term-time only. We meet while the main service is on, and join the adults towards the end of the service so that the children can go with their parents to take communion.
We read stories from the Bible, play games, do activities - drawing, colouring, wordsearch, etc. We sing songs, and prayers are answered.
In addition to Sunday Club, on the first Sunday of each month we hold Junior Worship services, and, of course, we hold Christingle services and act out our Nativity Play around Christmas time.
