The Chaplaincy

We are an international Christian church comprising of two English-speaking congregations in the Anglican tradition. We have served the English-speaking Christian community in Greater Lisbon for over 350 years and we welcome you to join us in worship. Whether you are a resident of Portugal or a visitor, we really look forward to seeing you. The dress code is informal: wear what makes you comfortable and if you want to sit down during the service when everyone stands up, that is just fine! Join us for worship at St Paul’s or St George’s on Sundays.  We also have worship once a month in the Caldas das Rainha area north of Lisbon.  Please see the Caldas das Rainha page under Churches for more information. We warmly welcome enquiries from couples interested in celebrating their wedding ceremony in an Anglican church in Lisbon.  Click on the link to our weddings page for more information about organising a Church of England service in Lisbon, surely one of the most romantic and exciting cities in Western Europe.

Part of the Anglican Communion

As part of the Anglican Communion, and specifically a part of the Church of England, the Chaplaincy is a church of the Diocese in Europe. The Anglican Churches of St George, Lisbon, and St Paul, Estoril, were amalgamated in 1984 to form one organisation, which was called the Greater Lisbon Chaplaincy of St George and St Paul. This is a legal entity, recognised in Portuguese law as a religious body named Igreja Anglicana de São Jorge e São Pãolo.  We are also associated with the Intercontinental Church Society, an evangelical mission society, through our Chaplain.  For more information about the wider Church, please see our Resources page. Anglican services in Portuguese can be found at our sister church, the Lusitanian Church in the Anglican Communion, here: https://www.igreja-lusitana.org/index.php/en/

The Chaplaincy is completely self-funding and receives no financial assistance from any outside body, such as the British Government or the Church of England.
