Anglican Church in the Pas-de-Calais

We find ourselves once more without a chaplain, our “new” chaplain the Rev. Kirrilee Reid having resigned half-way through her contract. We sincerely hope the stakeholders (the dioceses of Canterbury and Europe, plus the United Society Partners in the Gospel) will continue funding for a new chaplain and refugee project officer, but until an appointment is made, our three worship centres (Calais, Boulognesur-Mer and Hesdin) face a period of lay services alternating with visiting priests.
