    St. Peter's Church, Chantilly, is a primarily English-speaking Christian community made up of members of many different nationalities and denominations. It is part of the Church of England Diocese in Europe, which is a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion of churches, which are usually known as either Anglican or Episcopalian churches.

    After many years of financial support from the Intercontinental Church Society (ICS), up until the 1980 ...     more ...
  • Location
    Chantilly is located 45 km north of Paris on the D1016. The best access by road, however, is by the A1 motorway to Junction 7, the D1017 to La Chapelle en Serval and then D924a to Chantilly. We are about 25 minutes by road from Charles de Gaulle Airport and the church is about 20 minutes walk from the mainline station which has trains from Amiens, Compiègne and Paris (25-40 minutes from the Gare du Nord). Once in Chantilly, follow signs to Egli ...     more ...
  • History
    There has been an Anglican Chaplaincy in Chantilly since the early days of the English-speaking community here, which first arrived in the 1830s and '40s at the invitation of the Duc d'Aumale to help establish horse-racing.

    The present church plot and the adjoining plot were bought from the Duc d'Aumale by Messrs. Antrobus and Marjoribanks on behalf of the Commonwealth and Continental Church Society (now ICS). The foundation stone of a Victo ...     more ...

Walking down the streets of Chantilly, under the arch that led out towards the 'pelouse' in front of the Chateau, we became aware of other voices in the dark. We recognised them as fellow, 'hardy' (foolhardy?) pilgrims making their way towards the end of the racecourse keeping the silhouetted profile of the chateau to our left. As we looked back, other pilgrims with torch ...     more ...

  • Brief History
    images/ducdaumale.jpg The Duc d’Aumale actively encouraged Anglophone immigration to Chantilly, in recognition of the warm welcome that he had received whilst in exile in England. In 1860 he sold a piece of land to Messrs Antrobus and Marjoriebanks, British bankers, who then gifted it to the Colonial and Continental Church Society. These patrons supported the building of a new church built on the rue des Cascades for the British community ...     more ...
  • Resoration: Why?
    The need to keep our church in good repair for future generations.


    Everyone who entered the church before 2009 could clearly see the extent of the problems on the left side of the nave: cracked walls, peeling paint, rotting or missing floorboards, etc. The site of the church building, located at the edge of a slope, combined with poor drainage, had weakened the walls and consequently some of the walls sagged, joints opened up, the a ...     more ...
  • Today and the future
    In 1973, the Intercontinental Church Society renewed their patronage of St. Peter’s Church. The Society appointed four full-­time chaplains in succession to look after the English-­speaking community. The numerous plaques on the interior walls of the church bear witness to generations of British and Irish families who have made their home in Chantilly.

  • Jean de France - Duc de Vendôme
    Prince d’Orléans, prince français, prince chrétien, je ne peux que m’associer au projet de restauration de l’église St. Peter’s. Le duc d’Aumale, mon arrière-­grand-­oncle, l’a voulue pour Chantilly. Elle manifestait les liens qui unissaient les Orléans à la société britannique. C’est le symbole sacré d’une communion de civilisation.
  • Éric Woerth - Ex Government Minister of the Budget / Mayor of Chantilly
    Chantilly est anglophile depuis plus de 150 ans ! Cette passion a imprimé sa marque partout ; voyez le jardin anglais, voyez le champ de courses, voyez aussi l’église anglicane St.Peter’s ! Une passion qui s’exprime aussi dans la présence d’une communauté anglophone nombreuse, enracinée, dynamique, qui fait la fierté de notre ville et avec laquelle j’éprouve beaucoup de plaisir à travailler.
