Welcome to the Anglican Parish on Lanzarote!
A warm welcome to all our new and old visitors from all over the world!
We don’t know how you found our website but are thankful you did and hope you enjoy our homepage.
In these troubling times, please be assured that you can get in touch with us whenever you need to – not only by watching our online services but also over the phone and by email.
Wherever you are from, whether we’ve met in person before or not, whatever your nationality or denomination – our door is always open!
During this lockdown, it is our main goal to not leave anybody behind and to work together towards a new and revived church. With your help, we will achieve to buy the new Chaplaincy House which will allow us to offer manifold new activities for all – locally and online – and invite you to them whenever you are on this beautiful island.
If you want to support us towards the purchase, please use the Gofundme campaign (link below). read our story and consider a donation. Every little bit helps. Thank you!

CORONA VIRUS SAFETY MEASUREMENTS
Update May 23:
While Church Services are permitted again with a 50% capacity from next Monday and under immense hygiene and safety measures (no hymn books, no singing, complete disinfection of the entire church before and after the services, mandatory wearing of masks etc.), we believe the priority is to continue to protect those in our care. It is so important that we do not undo any of the achievements of the lock-down by moving too quickly towards our physical services.
As your Chaplain I am therefore advising that we will continue with our ‘virtual’ online services throughout May and June and will then review again towards the end of June with regard to the next phase for July and beyond.
All our services therefore will not be resumed until further notice as an ongoing precaution measure to avoid the spread of COVID-19 amongst our congregations, friends, residents and visitors alike. Please do what you can for yourselves and others to stay safe and follow the experts’ advice on hygiene and socialising.
Updates will be shared with you on all means of social media.
Happy Ascension Day!

We are a parish with a mission as we seek to further God’s Kingdom on our islands, in fellowship with our sister churches here on Lanzarote. We aim to work closely with the other churches, to offer a united and friendly welcome to people from all over the world, and we are blessed to have so many visitors to our worship. This brings to us a wonderful diversity of culture and language in which we rejoice and give thanks to God, for the diversity of His creation. We are blessed too, to have a regular congregation, who support the ministry and mission of the Chaplaincy.
Whether you are a long-term or new resident, a regular visitor, or simply here on holiday, please be assured of a very warm welcome at all our services and events. We love to hear from visitors who have shared worship with us, and do let us know if you are thinking of joining us for worship when you come on holiday to Lanzarote. Our website contains lots of information about us, and whom to contact.
Your prayer for our work is important to us, and if you would like someone added to our Intercession list whilst you are here, please let one of the Ministry Team know or submit your prayer request through our website.
