Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:reader]
So much going on, we hope you can join us for some of our services and events. There is more to look forward to as the year advances; in particular, don't forget that we will be celebrating our 150th anniversary in May this year. If you'd like to help, please get in touch (reply to this newsletter).

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

You can still take part, either on Saturday or Sunday evening. Everyone welcome!

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.

Men's Group - next meeting

The Men's group will meet next on Saturday 9 February at 10 am, for breakfast and chat.
Everyone welcome, but please let Tom know if you are coming so he can make sure there is plenty for everyone.
