Brief History

Posted by: Webmaster on Tuesday March 12, 2013   (2332 Reads)
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 living in Chantilly, and in time, financed the ministry of services and activities in English.

The church was constructed in 1865 under the guidance of the architect Thomas Fraser Duff (1830-1877) in a neo­gothic style, typical of village churches in England. The new sanctuary was consecrated in 1883 during the pastoral visit of the Archbishop of Gibraltar. The first pastor’s home was added in 1890-92. The tradition continues today with a strong Anglican community worshipping at the church. Parishioners come not just from the surrounding towns and villages but from as far away as Beauvais and beyond.
