On this page you will find out something about us, where to find us and details about what is happening in the form of services, social events and news ... 

Background
There has been an Anglican Church in Calais since the mid-nineteenth century.  During World War II the church was bombed, so the grounds were sold in the 1950's.  A few years later the small but close-knit community started meeting at the French Reformed Church, served by successive priests from the Mission to Seafarers in Dunkirk. When these were not available, I.C.S. provided ministers convalescing at the Touquet and later, some crossed the Channel by hovercraft, ferry or the Tunnel, from Kent, Sussex and even further afield.Helped by the Diocese in Europe, the Pas-de-Calais chaplaincy became a reality, with four then three centres, worshipping generally on Catholic church premises.

 

We now have a Chaplain the Revd Kirrilee Anne Reid, who will lead us at every Eucharist, lay services will also be available led by our Licensed Lay Reader

Kirrilee was Licensed by the Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe, the Rt Reverend Dr. Robert Innes and the Bishop of Dover, the Rt Revd. Trevor Willmott at Boulogne on the 8th November 2018.

Social Events

There is an excellent community spirit in the congregation and social events such as film and quiz evenings, meals, strawberry teas, and the summer garden party attract a wide range of people. The bilingual Christmas Carol Service draws people from all churches and members of the congregation play an active part in organising ecumenical events (Women's World Day of Prayer, Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Good Friday meditation, Easter Sunday sunrise service on the beach...).

Services

We welcome all denominations to our services.                      Holy Communion/Eucharist is held each month in the morning as at the time shown below on the 2nd Sunday and on the 4th Sunday, periodically lay services may be arranged, consisting of a service based on the Book of Common Prayer - Morning Prayer or Prayer and Praise. If you intend to come to a Prayer and Praise, why not let us know what your favourite hymn prayer, reading or poem is, and we will try to include it in our service.

News 

The Reverend Kirrilee Anne Reid will be leading us during our services in November.
