BAV Christmas Lunch - 4th December 2021
BYO Boules Lunch

The BAV has a very active Event calendar with something happening most months throughout the year. Undoubtably the most memorable of these is our annual Vendange lunch, which is normally held in a Vineyard restaurant in September to celebrate the grape harvesting. Close behind this is our annual Christmas lunch which typically attracts over 60 guests for a pre-Christmas get together.

In addition to these annual lunches, we run a variety of other events across the Var ranging from tours of Perfumeries and Museums to Village walks and Ten pin Bowling. Invariably these events will include lunch at a local restaurant, although members are welcome to attend any event even if not staying for lunch.

    • St John's Anglican Church, 117 Ave Paul Doumer, Saint-Raphael 83700

    St John's Anglican Church in Saint-Raphael
    Annual Christmas Lessons and Carols Service

    This service, has been held for many years during the lead up to Christmas Day at St John's (and in many Anglican Churches across the UK, Europe and North America)

    The singing of the well known Christmas Hymns and hearing the Christmas story again can remind many of us of times past.

    In the past few years, St John's has added a European twist to this wonderful event. The Christmas story is read by various people in English, French, German, Spanish, the Scot's Dialect, and new this year, Swedish. We call it "Many Voices, One Gospel".

    As always the evening is wrapped up with a time of friendship and fellowship accompanied by mulled wine and mince pies.

    There is some parking around the church, but the Saint-Raphael rail station is just across the railway tracks over the bridge from the church and always has lots of parking (paid). There is no admission fee, but a free will offering will be collected.

    For more information, contact Rev Dr Tom Wilson, Chaplain of Saint-Raphael and the Var at chaplain.straphael@gmail.com or 04 94 52 07 17
