Mme Barrau Funeral - Eglise Sainte Geneviève, 130 Rue Bertrand de Goth, 33800 Bordeaux

Mme Barrau who was a long standing member and supporter of our church has sadly passed away,  She was a joy to be with and will be remembered by all who new her.

Anyone who has visited our church in Bordeaux over recent years will, I am sure, remember the wonderful Mme Barrau, a delightful French lady who was amongst the most faithful members of our congregation for many many years.  It is with great sadness, therefore, that I have to announce that she died last week following a time of failing health.  Despite her diminutive stature, Mme Barrau will leave a very big gap in the heart of the Bordeaux church.
Her funeral will be celebrated tomorrow (Tuesday 2nd April) at l’Église Sainte-Geneviève, 130 Rue Bertrand de Goth, 33800 Bordeaux at 10h00.  Please pray for Mme Barrau’s family and our brothers and sisters in Bordeaux at this sad time.
God bless,

New Bible Study

New Bible Study!! – Coming soon – date to be announced – Watch this space

Rev’d Charlotte Sullivan writes:

Following on from just10 and keeping in mind our Stewardship theme for October, I would like to propose that our next bible study is one that focuses on Commitment.

The study material that I have chosen is based on a sermon by Robert Boyd Munger, My Heart Christ’s Home.  I first read this sermon six years ago and it challenged me deeply enough for me to make significant changes in my life at the time!  I re-read the short book today and found it just as provocative!  I thought to myself,  ” I don’t want to study this on my own again”, this time I want to talk and think about it with my friends!

Please watch this space for a starting date but please remember that it is fellowship, it is informal discussion and it is food, oh ….. there is wine too!  What’s not to like?  Come and try it.



just10 - Start Date

just10 starts on Wednesday, 16th May at 7pm in Floirac

just10 what? The Commandments of course!

just10 is a ten week evening course on the 10 commandments starting on Wednesday 16th May at 7pm in Floirac. Led by Reverend Charlotte Sullivan, the course unpacks and explores the heart of each commandment, revealing its relevance and the practical implication for our lives today.

The course offers the opportunity to engage with the Ten Commandments as a small group, as an individual and as a church. As we go through the course together, we work out how to apply the relevant biblical principles of each commandment to our lives.

The material gives us the tools to be able to encourage one another in faith and works.

There will be plenty of time for discussion and fellowship.

Each week we will take a close look at one of the Commandments, watching and discussing Canon J. John’s teaching.

Reverend Canon J. John is an international evangelist based in the UK – he went to theological college at St John, Nottingham. His talks are always interesting, motivational and funny. He has been described as a cross between Billy Graham and Mr Bean !

When and where?

Wednesday 16th May at 7pm for 10 consecutive weeks in Floirac.

Its always nice to have the fellowship of a meal after these courses so that the discussion can continue so we aim to eat at 8.15pm.

Each person on the course will receive a course booklet

Thy Kingdom Come and Pentecost

Thy Kingdom Come

“ I cannot remember in my life anything that I’ve been involved in where I have sensed so clearly the work of the Spirit ” Archbishop Justin Welby

Between 10th – 20th May, communities and churches around the world are gathering together to pray that their friends, families and neighbours come to know Jesus Christ. Prayer events of all shapes and sizes will take place across the 10 days. Cathedrals, churches and other venues will gather people across towns and cities to worship and to pray for the empowering of the Holy Spirit for effective witness.


We will be holding two prayer events on Thursday 10th and Friday 18th May at the Presbytery @ 7pm followed by a ‘bring and share’ meal.

Let’s meet together to pray and consider what God is calling us to do in our community.

Or for more details please contact Charlotte: reverend@anglicanbordeaux.org

What is it?

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ. What started out as an invitation from the Archbishops’ of Canterbury and York in 2016 to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

The hope is that:

People will commit to pray with God’s world-wide family – as a church, individually or as a family.

Churches will hold prayer events, such as 24-7 prayer, prayer stations and prayer walks, across the UK and in other parts of the world.

People will be empowered through prayer by the Holy Spirit, finding new confidence to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.

How can we get involved at Bordeaux?

We can all pray individually

Please visit the Thy Kingdom Come website www.thykingdomcome.global for more details.

We can also pray together

We will be holding two prayer events on Thursday 10th and Friday 18th May. Let’s meet together to pray and consider what God is calling us to do in our community.

Both events will be at the Presbytery at 7pm followed by a ‘bring and share’ meal. Please visit the website for updates www.anglicanbordeaux.org

Or for more details please contact Charlotte: reverend@anglicanbordeaux.org

Pentecost Celebration

On Sunday 20th May come and join us for our Pentecost Celebration 10.30am @ La Chapelle de L’Assomption


Evening Prayers set to Music: Evensong - Sunday, December 3rd at 17.00

Following the tradition of English cathedrals, the Bordeaux Anglican Church Choir will be singing the Evening Prayers of the Church as set to music by the great English and Anglican composers.

The psalms are sung to Anglican chant, and the two evening canticles – Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis – are sung to settings from as early as the 16th century to the present.

In addition, a major anthem is sung highlighting the theme of the day or the season.

The congregation joins in on the Lord’s Prayer, the Apostles Creed and the hymns.

In hearing the texts sung to more extended choral settings one is able to meditate on them and perhaps perceive new insight into them as each composer interprets these texts through music. The worshipper is engaged more through hearing than active participation, yet nevertheless can find that in listening his heart can be moved to add a silent “amen” to the prayers and praises sung by the choir.

What better way to start off the Advent Season! Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, December 3rd at 17.00.

Sunday 19th November 2017 – Family Service with Reverend Deacon Charlotte Sullivan

Thank you Charlotte for travelling so far to lead our Family Service today and inspiring us to recognise and contribute our talents.

Thanks also to Lindsay for the thoughtful Prayers of Intercession.
