All Saints Hérault
The English Church at Saint Pargoire
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
Please check the "Diary" 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".
Our Clergy and Church Wardens
Revd Roger Smith
I moved to live permanently in the Hérault in 2011, after many years in Rothwell, Northhants. As Priest in Charge I am keen to welcome people of all types and traditions to All Saints.
Together with my husband Francis, we welcome people attending All Saints.
I also answer all the queries arising from e-mails, issue the notices and organise the rota, as well as preparing the church for worship and tidy up afterwards.
I am the backroom boy in the team. I produce the agendas and other papers for meetings.
I also deal with the correspondence between the Église protestante unie, the local administration and other local bodies.
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. From time to time, we use the 1662 version from the Book of Common Prayer. 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 Bible study group.
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.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO WARMLY WELCOMING YOU INTO OUR CHURCH OF ENGLAND COMMUNITY IN THE HÉRAULT
