Skipping for the Church of England


AVID SKIPPERS from the Albir Church of England turned out in force on what was a dark, cold and windy morning last Saturday.

The two hour ‘skip-a-thon’ always saw at least one of the seven skippers jumping rope and encouraging passers-by to join in, with individual ropes and one longer rope.

The skippers had great fun despite some of them not having skipped for 60 years and were delighted to have raised just short of €100 for the church.

A service of Holy Communion is held in Albir every Sunday at 9.45am.

A service of Holy Communion is also held at the Forum Mare Nostrum, Alfaz del Pi every Thursday at 11.00am.

The second Thursday of each month is a healing service.

The last Thursday of each month an open discussion – ‘faith, questions and doubts’ – takes place from 10.00am -10.50am (followed by the regular service).

The church can be found in the centre of Albir – on the main road, Camino de la Cantera (near the Consum Supermarket), look out for the Rober Palas Hotel signpost. Turn right in front of the hotel and the Church (Norwegian Seaman’s Church) is just inside the next left turn, Carrer Mart.

For further information please call the local Church Warden, Elaine Mitchell on 96 686 4962 / 636 164 467.

Albir Church of England is one of eight congregations in the Chaplaincy, from Gandia to El Campello and more information can be found on the website
