Worship Services are held in two churches

At the church in Négrondes, services are held at 10:30 on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month.

At the chapel in Chancelade, Holy Communion is celebrated at 10:30am every other month, on the third Sunday.

Anglican forms of worship are used for all services.

The Church in Négrondes (24460) is located between Thiviers and Perigueux on the N21 north of Perigueux and Sorges. Services were previously held in the village church of Sorges.

The Chapelle Saint Jean in Chancelade (24650) is located six kilometers to the west of Perigueux. Chancelade was the historic capital of the Dordogne and its abbey was founded in the early 12th Century. The Chapelle St Jean was the first building to be erected to provide those working on the Abbey with a place of worship.

Our Members

Our members are drawn from the north-east, north, and central Dordogne. All are welcome to join us for worship and various fellowship events held throughout the year.

At the Chancelade and Négrondes churches, we are a bit like a box of chocolates. Some dark and bitter, some creamy and milky and a few white and very sweet. Likewise our churches are varied – soft, hard, crunchy and creamy. A wonderful mixture! – lets’s all keep it that way, and join together to exchange our different ways of doing and seeing things. This will enrich our lives and especially our worship.

Fellowship: Bring and Share Lunches

We occasionally hold bring and share lunches after services, which give us a chance to catch up with old and new riends, enjoying Christian fellowship around a bountiful table.

We also meet for ‘Home Group’ studies, usually on Thursday afternoons at 14:00, in various locations: Sorges, St Jory les Bloux, and others.
