CHURCHES AND CHAPLAINCIES
The Anglican Chaplaincy of Aquitaine
The Chaplaincy of Aquitaine is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion and in the Diocese in Europe.
We minister to the spiritual needs of English-speaking people in the Gironde, Dordogne, and Lot et Garonne. As an Anglican Chaplaincy, we are home to Christians from all denominations. We also welcome those who are exploring questions of faith, or who are simply looking for companionship or support. All are welcome!
Our congregations are comprised of many different nationalities, and we meet in a dozen or so churches and in private homes throughout the region. Services are led by a growing team of clergy, readers, and worship leaders, including baptisms, weddings, and funerals.
Chaplaincy of Midi-Pyrenees & Aude and Area Dean for France (South)
Our church belongs to the Anglican Communion, but we are from many different Christian backgrounds, and this is reflected in our worship.
Most are native English speakers, but we have others for whom English is a second or third language.
We worship at present in seven locations; we meet in prayer, bible study and home groups in many more places; we feel close in spirit although often far apart in geography.
Some of us have retired to this beautiful part of France; others are working; others are not yet walking. Most are expatriates, but with a strong sense of belonging to the communities in which we live.
Some of us have just arrived; some will be here for a short time. Others have been worshipping here for 30 or 40 years. 'Here' covers an area larger than Wales.
We have all found a home in this church; there are many others who would and will find the same.
