Read the updated message from the Acting Chair of the Lisbon Chaplaincy Council concerning the re-opening of our churches and the situation regarding the introduction of regular services.Meanwhile we are holding a live-streamed Eucharist as from 9:25 am every Sunday, conducted by our Locum Chaplain, the Reverend Ian Eglin, from his home in Devon. For the liturgy, hymns and readings click on the “Weekly Notices” button (see button above) and then select “Resources”.

[ X ]Sunday Services in the coming weeksThe Church Council met on 18th August to discuss issues relating to the provision of Sunday services. It was agreed that, provided all the necessary protocols are followed, there is no longer any objection, in principle, to the holding of services at our churches. Unfortunately, however, the UK quarantine requirement, only lifted subsequently and of uncertain duration, makes it unviable still to bring out a locum Chaplain. For the time being, therefore, we will continue with live streaming of Sunday services at 09h30. Our grateful thanks to Rev. Chris Welsh, who took the services over the past four weeks, and to Rev. Ian Eglin has kindly agreed to resume services from this coming Sunday and for the following three Sundays.The Church Council will be meeting again later this month to reassess the situation.
