Christ Church Lille Newsletter
Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:reader]
We thought you'd like some ideas of things to do during confinement, so take a look at the brand-new page on our website.

And now we need you

We're making a short video about "CCL in lockdown" (provisional title at the moment!)
Can you send us a short video (maximum 10 seconds) or a photo showing your life at the moment? We'll edit it into a film to share. And find a better title!
- Please hold your camera or phone in landscape (not portrait) mode
- If there is anyone else in the video, make sure you have their permission to share, because it will go on YouTube and the website. Sending us the video means you agree with this use.
- We'll blur children's faces
- Happy, sad, funny - it's up to you ...
Please send your creation to
by Tuesday 28 April
Thank you!
