Church of England Diocese in Europe

About Us

The English Church in the Hérault. All Saints Hérault people are a mixed group of different ages, backgrounds and traditions, who meet in the Chapel of the Église protestante unie de France in the village of St Pargoire, 10 km north east of Pézenas.

Church Life focuses around the service of Holy Communion. Our regular service is on the second Sunday of the month at 10.30 am, but there are often services or events at other times, especially on notable days in the Church's year, such as Easter, Christmas and Lent. Refreshments are served after the Service, providing an opportunity to chat and make friends.

From time to time, services are held at other chapels in the local area. These include chapels in Margon, Puissalicon, and Roquessels. We also are joint celebrants at the annual Christmas carol service in Fontès. Directions to St. Pargoire and these other venues can be found below.

Please check the "Our Church" tab on this website for details of upcoming services and events. We extend a warm welcome to all Christian people to join us at our services and church events, especially those new to our "Parish".

A word on our church services and social events.

We follow the order laid down in Common Worship introduced in 2000 and varies with the seasons of the Church's Year. Evensong is also held occasionally. At different times of the year, we hold services at other chapels in the area, reflecting events or wishes of our parishioners. We also have a prayer group and a part time Sunday school (Families with children are present at varying times of the year!). Our clergy also conduct Christenings, Confirmation classes, Weddings and funerals. 

During the year, we hold a number of social events to which all are invited. Perhaps you are a visitor to the Hérault, or someone contemplating making the Hérault a permanent feature of their life. Whatever the reason, we invite you to join us at one of our regular church services or social events. If you would like to speak to our clergy or churchwardens before attending a service or social event, please use one of the contact methods below.
