Lorgues with Fayence in the Var

Part of the Anglican Mission of the Diocese in Europe



Serving, Enabling and Encouraging God’s Mission



Jesus drew near and said to them, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.   Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age.”   Matthew  chapter 28, verses 18-20


Mission in our chaplaincy seeks to share in God’s mission and further the Kingdom in the communities in which we live. Our primary focus is the English speaking people who live or pass through the Var and we work with all who share in God’s kingdom values.  This page sets out our purpose and our values and also helps keep us connected to the wider Mission of the church with news both local and in the extended church of God’s family.

Our Purpose


We seek to serve, enable and encourage individuals and our church to become more faithful and effective in fulfilling God’s call to be a missionary people. This will lead to transformation in this part of France and our vision is to see God's offer of the free gift of eternal life through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ made known and accepted, and through that . . .

•   A deepening love for God, expressed in prayer, worship and discipleship

•   A growing openness to change and transformation, and a willingness to embrace the implications

•   The formation of leaders, lay and ordained, as they respond to God’s call on their lives

•   A more meaningful engagement by our chaplaincy with the local communities

•   Numerical growth in worshipping fellowships


Our Values


We shall seek to fulfil these purposes by . . .

•   Faith in God, who brings transformation and builds the Kingdom

•   Being rooted in present realities and having a vision for God’s future

•   Being open to new possibilities and responding with flexibility and creativity

•   Valuing each individual, believing that they are responsible for their own growth and development

•   Balancing ‘being’ and faithfulness with ‘doing’ and effectiveness

•   Listening well – to others, to contexts and to God

•   Working collaboratively

•   Speaking with respect and honesty
