growing in christchaplaincy of aquitaine

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.

 

events and fellowship

Worship Services in English are led by a growing team of clergy, lay readers and congregational worship leaders, and include Holy Communion, Morning Worship, Prayer and Praise, Family Services, and Evensong. As anread more Anglican Chaplaincy, part of the Diocese in Europe, 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!

 

fresh expressions

In 2004, the Church of England published an important report called ‘Mission Shaped Church’.  The report focussed on how we might fulfil our God-given mission amongst people with little or no experience of traditional churches or amongst those who have, for one reason or another, left the church.  It championed what was referred to as “Fresh Expressions of church”. fresh expressionsA Fresh Expression is a new gathering or network that engages mainly with people who are outside the traditional church structures. There is no single model, but the emphasis is on starting something which is appropriate to its context and its people, rather than cloning something that works elsewhere.  Within the Chaplaincy of Aquitaine we have two such communities: Eymet Temple and The Gathering (near Condom).

 

ingrid and tony lomas

A warm welcome from our Chaplain, Rev'd Tony Lomas We are on a 'shared journey: growing in Christ.' We are far from perfect, yet we strive to love, pray and live like Jesus. We are convinced that if we open ourselves to Jesus, read moreby listening to his Word and the Holy Spirit (and act on that!!), we will bear much fruit (John 15). We hope that many will join us on that exciting journey...including you!
