Following the AGM, there are two new wardens and a new council. Details are on the “contact us” page.


Newsletter: Copies of the Advent and Christmas edition are available in each church and here.


Each church holds a monthly fellowship lunch (Although San Eugenio is currently searching for a new venue): San Blas - 3rd Sunday, Los Gigantes, 3rd Thursday. Those who wish to attend are asked to sign up in church or contact one of the Churchwardens or Church secretary preferably a week earlier. The lunches are held in a restaurant located near each church.


Food for the needy: For many years now we have been supporting the needy in Tenerife through the provision of food that is then distributed by several groups of nuns. Donations of food can be made at any time but are especially welcome on the first Sunday of the month. A basket for collection is available in each of the three churches.
