Christ Church Lille Newsletter

Reminders

Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:reader]
This week's newsletter is being sent out exceptionally on a Thursday - as in previous years, we avoid sending out on Good Friday. (Sorry we forgot to mention this last week.)

Thank you to all our readers for their support, to Debbie and the team for making sure that Christ Church continues even if the building is shut, and to everyone for all their efforts: staying home, support and caring for family and friends at a distance, joining in worship online, or being in the frontline of health, social and municipal services. Thank you all.

Don't forget that even if you miss a video service, you can still go to our YouTube Channel and find them. Read on for information about services this week, both on video and in text format.

Last chance!

Your contributions to our Holy Week and Easter video - (drawings, readings, videos, pictures, photos, poems ...) need to reach us by Saturday 12:00 noon LATEST so we can send it out on Easter Sunday. More information here

Open church - but online

An unexpected but happy result of holding services and meetings online is that people are able to join in not just from France, but from other countries around the world. They can watch the video and follow the text at any time, and the Men's Group and the Mosaic evening service are both delighted to welcome people who are in a completely different time zone!

Services for Holy Week and Easter

There will be direct links from the website to the videos and texts.
Here is a reminder of the weekly services, meetings and events that you can join from home. Full details on the website

All Welcome. Contact the churchoffice@christchurchlille.fr for further details

Giving

Thank you to those who continue to give to the church. The building may be closed, but our work and mission continues. And of course the bills keep coming in.
If you usually donate via the collection plate via cash or cheque, perhaps you could consider contributing using one of the methods on our Giving page. It's simple and it really helps, thank you.

Keeping in touch

At this time when we can't meet in person, it's even more important to keep in touch by email or phone or ...
Please can we remind you to update your contact details on ChurchBox, our secure address list? Thank you to all the people who have already done so.
And if you haven't yet put your details there, please do so, it's secure, and nobody can access your details unless you give permission.
