Worship breaks borders
The Chapelle des Augustines, Limoux, welcomes an Anglican Congregation every Sunday – and provides light refreshments and chat after the service.
The chapel is part of the Anglican Chaplaincy of the Midi-Pyr�n�es and Aude and is happy to unite in worship with Christians of all denominations. The congregation is drawn from the English-speaking community in the wider vicinity of Limoux, with people driving 40 minutes or more to attend services. Regulars’ include retired people and families with young children and often their visitors as well as holidaymakers.
Earlier in the year, the chapel enjoyed its 15 minutes of fame when the Radio 4 Daily Service team visited!
At least once a year, the chapel holds an outdoor Praise Picnic. The congregation also gets together for Men’s Brunches (full English breakfast and good conversation), Ladies’ Lunches (usually in a local restaurant) and a Harvest Festival bring-and-share lunch. Everyone is welcome to join in these events.
Services usually begin at 10.30am except on the third Sunday of the month when Holy Communion is held at 4.30pm. The chapel offers a Sunday Club with Christian teaching and activities for children during services and encourages the children to participate in its monthly All Age Worship.
