Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:reader]
CCL continues to develop and grow. In this newsletter, details of a new prayer initiative, and also of Mosaic (evening service team) socials.
We continue our outreach, helping others less fortunate - see how in this newsletter.
And on a different note - we're organising an International Evening at the end of March, details to follow.
At the same time, our regular services, groups and events continue. None of this would be possible without your support, so thank you.

The church calendar is on our website, and all the services and readings are shown there. Also on the calendar are major works and the events taking place.

This Sunday is coffee-in-between

Join us after the 9:15 service or before the 10:30 service for coffee and muffins. It's the opportunity to chat to people you might not otherwise get to meet.

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Sorry, there was an error in last week's newsletter, the closing ceremony will be at Ste Catherine, 14 Terrace Ste Catherine in Lille (not at the EPUdF).

17 January at 18:00 : opening service at the EPUdF
25 January at 18:00 : Orthodox service (Orthodox church, rue Princesse, Lille)
26 January at 17:00 : closing service at Ste Catherine, Lille
We will be making another delivery to the Maria Skobtsova House in Calais soon. If you can donate items for them, please bring them to church. It's not Christmas, but these things are still very much needed and your gifts are highly appreciated. Here's a reminder of their needs:

We try to help refugees, but we also help charitable associations through our charitable giving association Les Solidarités Anglicanes de Lille.

We are currently calling for suggestions for charities to support in 2020, and if you would like to suggest a recipient, please contact outreach@christchurchlille.fr explaining why they should be supported. Only recognised charitable organisations can be included but they can be anywhere in France, in UK or indeed around the world.
