Welcome Revd Philip Harbridge and Honorine !

Revd Philip Harbridge and his wife Honorine will be joining us for two Sundays in December including our Carol Service on Sunday 10th December at 17:00.

Philip has been Senior School Chaplain at Millfield in Somerset since September 2007. Honorine also works in the school.

Before Millfield, Philip was Chaplain at Christ’s College, Cambridge and served his curacy at All Saints Church in Hampton. He went to Westcott Theological College, though only seeing the light after a career first as a commercial lawyer!

Philip met and married Honorine on her native island of Madagascar following eighteen months missionary work with USPG. Honorine speaks no fewer than four languages, including French, and gained a doctorate in Theatre Studies from Hull University in 2005.

Their children Sophie and Tiffany (aged 11 and 8 respectively) are in the junior (prep) department at Millfield.


Harvest Festival and Holy Communion – Sunday, 15th October 2017 at 10:30

Our traditional Anglican Service where we thanked the Lord for the harvest and the many good things He has provided throughout the year.

This year, our Harvest Festival Thanksgiving Service with Holy Communion was lead by our Chaplain the Revd. Tony Lomas.

Your offerings will help in supporting the relief efforts on the island of St Martin in the Caribbean.  One of these efforts is aimed at providing nourishment for the many people who have lost everything that we take for granted.  A loss of proper shelter, food, power and running water due to the heavy and extensive damage caused by the recent hurricane.

Offerings of non-perishable goods such as canned or dried food were taken away after the Service and packed into a container for onward shipment to St Martin.


Sponsored Walk

Congratulations to our walkers and their sponsors !

Nearly 2000€ raised for Chap-Aid which will be distributed to help Foyer Fraternel and Emmaüs to continue their splendid work with the under privileged.

New Year Message from our Chaplain the Reverend Tony Lomas

The Lord says, “Do not cling to events of the past or dwell on what happened long ago. Watch for the new thing I am going to do. It is happening already—you can see it now! I will make a road through the wilderness and give you streams of water there.” Isaiah 43:18-19

Dear Friends,

Ingrid and I would like to send you all our very best wishes for the New Year and to express our immense gratitude to everyone for all that you have done over the last year to make our Chaplaincy such a vibrant place to be. We have been particularly touched by the warmth of the welcome and support that you have shown us which has enabled us to feel remarkably settled in such a comparatively short time.

Naturally now our eyes turn forward to the coming year and I guess we are all wondering what it holds in store for us. It is all too easy to carry a sense of foreboding from the events of last year but, as the above verse from Isaiah reminds us, God is constantly drawing us forward into His future rather than wanting us to dwell on the past. However dry and difficult the terrain ahead of us might seem, He always prepares a path for us and provides us with the water of life.

I delight in the fact that, as a Chaplaincy, we are constantly striving, through prayer, study and worship, to follow God’s path ourselves and to draw others to join us. During the coming year I feel certain that there will be many opportunities for us to grow together as Christ’s body in Aquitaine and to reach out to the various communities in which we live. I feel really excited by the awesome privilege of working through this year with you as your Chaplain and sharing in the many blessings that I am sure God has for us on our journey together.

With much love and every blessing,

Tony and Ingrid
