Please  note that there is a special Advent Course taking place after Wednesday evening services.

Changes and additions to December Services:

There will be an additional Christmas service, a Eucharist with carols, at La Chimenea Chapel, El Escorial. This will be held on Sunday 22 December at 18:30. As Father John often says, this is God’s table and all are welcome to attend, especially younger members of the community.

Please use our Events tab to see our comprehensive series of services to celebrate Christmas. We would love to see you and your families at at least one of them!

  Please let us know if you want to receive updates on El Escorial services  by e-mailing us on pewsnews4u@gmail.com

This Service is held in the “Capilla de La Chimenea” of the Monasterio del Prestado, right in the centre of the El Escorial pueblo and only a couple of minutes away from the Renfe main line station with its hourly connection to and from the centre of Madrid.

 

This Capilla, restored by the Fliedner foundation, is the place starting in 1607 where glass was fired for the windows needed for the construction of the Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial (a UNESCO heritage site).

The evocative burnt wall behind what is now used as the altar sets the scene for a memorable opportunity to worship.

After the service, refreshments and tapitas are offered in the delightful garden or, in case of unusually poor weather, in the refectory in the main seminary.

For those who want to tarry a little longer there are two excellent restaurants next to the station: “La Parada y Fonda” and “Algora”. 

Don’t forget though if you are going back to town by train the last one leaves at 22:13!
