THE Albir Church of England – one of seven in the Costa Blanca Anglican Chaplaincy – had a bumper Harvest this year.
Local Church Warden Elaine Mitchell writes:
“Each year the generosity of our members grows. Our produce, as last year, is to be donated to the Alfazdel Pi Food Bank to help the 100 plus families in need. We had a wonderful congregation numbering 40 last Sunday with half staying behind for a Ploughman’s Lunch.
This week we welcomed three new couples into our midst, albeit holiday makers, but they will return. Everyone who comes comments on what a warm welcome they receive – that welcome is waiting for you too if you have not yet joined us.
We are completely self-funding and so throughout the year there are various events organised across the Chaplaincy. There are a lot of exciting gatherings coming up over Christmas so check out our website.”
A service of Holy Communion is held in Albir every Sunday at 9.45am, services are held in the Norwegian Seaman’s Church in Carer Mart near the RoberPalas Hotel. A service of Holy Communion is held on Thursdays at 11.00am at the Forum Mare Nostrum in Alfaz del Pi; the second Thursday of the month is a healing service and the final Thursday of the month is preceded at 10.00am – 10.50am by an open discussion ‘Faith, Questions and Doubts’.
