An English-speaking community
at the heart of the French Riviera

About Us

St Michael’s Anglican Church is located in Beaulieu-sur-Mer in the South of France, halfway between Nice and Monaco. We serve the area between Nice and Monaco; Villefranche, St. Jean – Cap Ferrat, Beaulieu, Eze and Cap d’Ail.

We are a relatively small community representing people of every age and of a wide variety of nationalities – including English, Welsh, Scottish, Irish, American, Canadian, Australian, German, Dutch, Norwegian and Icelandic.

Our congregation includes Lutherans, Presbyterians and Roman Catholics, many of whom play a leading role in our activities. We have excellent relations with the town council and with the French Catholic parish and our church is also used by the Danish Lutheran community on the Cote d’Azur. The Chaplaincy of St Michael’s is funded entirely by it’s congregation and by well-wishers.

Our regular worship centres on our 10 o’clock Sunday Eucharist which is celebrated according to Common Worship and followed by refreshments in the garden or in the south aisle.

St Michael’s is a chaplaincy of the Diocese in Europe whose mission is to serve Anglican and English-speaking people throughout Europe, plus Morocco, Turkey and the whole of the former Soviet Union. There are currently chaplaincies in 44 countries ranging from Morocco to Iceland and from Portugal to Mongolia. See for more information
