Church of England parishes in Spain are entirely self-funding. So, fundraising is essential to maintain the Church’s ministry here, including funerals and pastoral care to the sick and the bereaved – and the activities of the seven local churches in support of causes such as Caritas, Red Cross, EMAUS, World Vision and the Gandia Hospice.
The Costa Blanca Anglican Chaplaincy serves the community from Valencia to Alicante with services in 8 different towns. For information on the activities of the church and the contact details and service times visit costablanca-anglicanchaplaincy.org/.
