About Us

The beautiful stone church on Carnot Avenue was built almost 150 years ago to provide a place of worship and pastoral care for the large British population that visited regularly to enjoy the sunshine along the Cote d'Azur. Over a period of time, that visiting community became an established community, and the "English Church" became a thriving centre within the beautiful town of Menton.

Times have changed. While the Cote d'Azur continues to draw thousands of visitors to its cities, towns and villages each year, few of those visitors choose to remain permanently. Instead, there is now an increasingly "mobile community" of those who spend several months in Menton each year, returning to homes in other parts of the world. The "English Church" is now a wonderful diversity of several nationalities, and languages, a church firmly within the world-wide Anglican Communion.
