Chaplaincy theme for 2017: Hold Fast

hold fastThe Chaplain writes, "...The world around us might seem like a somewhat dark, confusing and unsettling place at the moment, but we have the assurance that if we hold fast to the gospel, allow God’s love to work in and through us, then will we walk in that unquenchable light. And if we can do that, both individually and as a Christian community here in Aquitaine, then we might also be able to take some of that light into the lives of those around us allowing them to experience the much-needed hope and peace of God’s love".

3 Baptisms in Bordeaux!

It is with great joy that we share the good news of 3 baptisms held in Bordeaux on Sunday January 29th, officiated by Rev'd Dr. David Kirby. We pray, "Heavenly Father, by the power of your Holy Spirit you give to your faithful people new life in the water of baptism. Guide and strengthen us by the same Spirit, that we who are born again may serve you in faith and love, and grow into the full stature of your Son, Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit now and for ever. Amen."

The Chaplaincy of Aquitaine first came into being in 1825, when a church community was established in Bordeaux. In south-west France it seems that there have always been people seeking to worship God in the English language, and so for some 185 years we have been able, as the Psalmist puts it, to ‘sing the Lordread more’s song in a foreign land’.(Psalm 137:14Read more about the Chaplaincy's growth over the years in Aquitaine.
