A vision of communities that grow and practise the love of Jesus…and share it generously with others.
Chaplaincy AGM held on Saturday April 27th...very warm welcome for all!
Hot Coffee for our comfort on our arrival on a surprisingly cold day in April was very welcome. We heard encouraging words in the Chaplain’s Report and gracious thanks was made to many for their work and encouragement during the year.
Lunch was a sumptuous affair with more than enough for all which had been organised by Sally Davies with great precision, and the gifts of dishes had been generous.
We then adjourned to Monteton Church for a beautiful service of worship and praise for all God’s bounteous gifts and care. Our Chaplain, Paul led the Service, Liz presided at the Communion Table and Bramwell preached. It was a moving sermon on happenings at Bordeaux Church, how our best laid plans can be made but there is no accounting for the Wind of the Holy Spirit. It was encouraging to hear and many Amens were said at the end.

Focus in 2013... Lectio Divina - Praying through Scripture
In 2013 we want to shift our focus to Lectio Divina, that age-old discipline of reading the Scriptures prayerfully, or to pray through the Scriptures.
This will be our main focus for the annual retreat at Belloc (23-26 May), but I also hope to organize Lectio Divina workshops around the Chaplaincy later this year. We plan to exchange helpful books and other resources through newsletter and website.
Prayer will never be far away!

Our role is to minister to the spiritual needs of English-speaking people in the Dordogne, Lot-et-Garonne and Gironde. As an 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! Currently congregations comprising many different nationalities meet in a dozen or so worship centres in an area the size of Wales. 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, All-Age Worship and Evensong.
