Wedding Blessing - 7th June 2022
It has become a week of lovely things for our church. As Chaplain to the local Royal British Legion, Margie had the joy of doing a Service of Prayer and Blessing following a Civil Marriage. Two very dear friends invited 40 friends and family members for this lovely ceremony. It took place at the New Bar International, where a wonderful buffet was enjoyed by all. We then danced the evening away to the music of Brendan O'Dee, a long standing friend of the groom.
Beautiful service and wonderful celebration. Special thanks to all involved and lovely to see our church at the centre of such important occasions.
Happy 80th Birthday Dawn - 5th June 2022

It is a joy of our church that we can fully share in each other's happiness and worries, a true family."

"He is Risen" - Holy Week 2022
Easter was celebrated with such joy across the Chaplaincy. Aljambra had a Eucharist the morning of Maundy Thursday and Father Alan washed the feet of those who came to break bread and share the cup for an evening service at Llanos to remember the Last Supper.
Good Friday saw both Mojacar and Llanos celebrate a solemn vigil to ponder our Lord's cruel death to redeem us all from our wrongdoing.
But Easter Morning the Chaplaincy celebrated His Rising with hymns of praise and sharing Communion. Father Alan arranged different times for our services so we could all share the Eucharist. There were a couple of Easter Bonnets too!

A wonderful season in the Church calendar, with Christians all over the world worshipping God and thanking Him for Jesus. Our little corner of rural Spain joined that mighty crowd!! If you couldn't join us this year, be sure to mark the weekend next year. Every blessing from our Chaplaincy.
Return to Aljambra Chapel 10th March 2022
A wonderful morning for Aljambra yesterday with a special Eucharist of Thanksgiving for our return to our usual home of Worship. 30 people attended including 9 of our Spanish friends, some of whom were councillors from Albox Town Hall. The chapel has been completely renovated with a beautiful bell tower. The bell, brought over from specialist bell makers in Portugal, delightfully marked the beginning and end of the service.
