- 'Chap-Aid' is the charitable arm of the Anglican Chaplaincy of Aquitaine, France. This is the organisation the Chaplaincy has created to enable us to express our Christian faith in practical terms to people throughout the world who are in need.

- The Chaplaincy cannot give money to any outside person or organisation directly as the law requires it to pass such monies through a separate entity. So, to make its giving possible and legal, in 2006 the Chaplaincy created the necessary charitable body – known as an ‘Association Caritative’ or an ‘Association Cultuelle’.

- Called CHAP-AID, the charity’s objectives are to collect and distribute funds to enable it to provide relief to those in need, to support outreach, and to care for individuals in France or elsewhere, and to collect and distribute funds to those ends in a spirit of Christian concern.

Chap-Aid is managed by an annually elected Council.



Looking back on 2021...

charityChaplaincy Assemblée Générale: Thursday 24th March 2022, 11:00am (online, via zoom)

Please note this date in your diary; all are encouraged to attend and take part in this online meeting. Please contact a local Chap-Aid Rep for more information. All Chap-Aid members are invited to attend; you would be most welcome.


Charities 2022 Each church sector has an opportunity (prior to the annual Chap-Aid Assembly) to nominate a new charity. This is done through the channel of the Local Committee via the Chap-Aid Representative to the Chap-Aid Trustees.

- Any charity which CHAP-AID supports must not only have aims compatible with the aims and objectives of CHAP-AID but must also be a formally registered charity.

- To ensure that this is so, details of the charity must first be registered with the CHAP-AID Council for due diligence, using a specially produced Application Form (click here to download).

- The CHAP-AID Council will then decide on the validity of the charity, after due diligence has been approved. The written agreement of the CHAP-AID Council must be obtained before any fundraising can take place.
