The 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.So we are two Anglican, English-speaking churches serving the Christian community in the Greater Lisbon area and we welcome all people, whatever their creed, race or nationality, to join us in worship. Maybe you are a visitor to Lisbon and want to experience another church during your holiday. Excellent - we really look forward to seeing you. On the other hand, maybe you are a long-term ex-pat resident in Portugal, or were even born here, but feel drawn to one of our churches. Perhaps you just want to test the water or merely enjoy the communal singing. In other words, we operate an open door policy. 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!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 member of the Archdeaconry of Gibraltar, one of seven Archdeaconries in the Diocese in Europe. The latter, in turn, is the 44th diocese in the Church of England and gained its title in July 1980, having previously been the Diocese of Gibraltar.
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.
