A new worship centre in the parish of Gran Canaria

On Friday 23 April, St George's Day, the first Anglican service in Puerto de Mogán, Gran Canaria was held. For some time now, the priest-in-charge, Fr Peter Ford OGS, who is based at Holy Trinity Las Palmas over an hour away, has been planning to open a worship centre in this southern town on the island where many British come on holiday. The Roman Catholic Bishop of Gran Canaria has kindly offered the use of the Church of San Fernando (above) for our eucharists. The first celebration got off to an encouraging start with a congregation of 14. Plans are to have a service every Friday at noon, with time for fellowship at a lunch following. We wish the parish of Gran Canaria every blessing on this new outreach venture.

The parish website is here. In addition, Fr Ford has a blog entitled News from Paradise.

  1. IT looks nice. I always find an internal peace at worship place and that's why I used to go at temple or church to get out of this routine stress. It's good that people of gran will get another worship place.
